About Us

I am a director and director of photography with over 20 years of experience in television and film production. I work in all genres from commercials, to narrative film to documentary and ENG. If I have a trademark style, it's in my lighting. I have a strong background as a lighting DP - sometimes with a commercial budget and lots of toys, sometimes on a run and gun documentary with nothing but practicals and natural light. I enjoy either scenario.
I shoot all formats, film and digital. In addition to myself, I have a fantastic group of DPs, operators, sound mixers, make up artists and every other position who regularly work for my company. I own a wide variety of cameras - Sony F55(2), Sony FS7(2), Sony F800, Sony EX3(2), - high end lenses, lighting and grip trucks, a studio and everything else needed for just about any production.
Please visit my website for more information about me and to see examples of my work.

We have been in the industry since 1991.


Beautiful footage and incredibly professional. Looking forward to working with Jake again.

Jake and his crew are true pros, and nice guys to boot. We had a quick interview shoot in a residence that we weren't able to scout beforehand -- but Jake has a great eye and had a beautifully lit shot framed up in no time. I really appreciated his adaptability, expertise and can-do attitude. Highly recommended. Your production will be in good hands!
