Jacob had a childhood split between Lancashire just south of the Lake District and the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, but with a father who loved the mountains it was in his blood.
Bikes came long before cameras ever did but they have both been naturally linked since the start. Since the age of 15 Jacob loved developing his knowledge of moving images and photography, and this passion led to a full time career doing just that right out of school. All real word experience in real situations.
Now based in Bristol his love for the outdoors is still as strong as ever and when he isn’t riding, climbing or running he is normally in some far away place looking through a lens or busy at the computer editing his latest work.
Confident in all aspects of a high level production from the vital early phases of concepting, pre-production and location scouting, though to the more practical directing, shooting, photos and video on state of the art cameras to a top level, lighting and right through to the editing, post-processing and marketing.
Jacob understands the importance in the whole process being given the time it deserves and working as part of a team to give the end client the best product possible.
Its this outlook which is why 10 years ago he co-founded production company Aspect Media with fellow creative Chris Seager which is where they both work on projects for clients from all corners of the outdoor industry.
