If you are a photographer or a fisherman then this is really important. We are in a warm summer which means that water temps will be warm and water levels low. A number of rivers in Montana right now are closed because of this which makes the spots that…

Today marks a small event in history that would later become a much larger one. On this day in 1941 the US Navy commissioned the Naval Air Station on Midway Atoll. A little over a year later on June 4 and 6 1942, the famous Battle for Midway was fought…

This past weekend I was up at Flathead Lake attending a wedding and it was absolutely gorgeous. I don’t get up north that often but I’m sure glad when I do. Flathead is enormous and literally can take hours to drive around. the evening produced some…

I have never been much for jets but I still photograph them as subject as opportunity. To me they just lack that luster that is there with warbirds and antiques. That’s just the way I mentally perceive them. They are still amazing pieces of machinery that…

The size of the subject is something that I hear a lot about when it comes to aviation because everyone seems to think that the plane has to fill the frame. A lot of times that is hard to do. Even with the 200-400 VR and high speed crop, the way the…

The Snowbirds have been a favorite of mine for years. This Canadian Jet Team was been performing for years and each time it is done with such precision that it almost doesn’t seem real since they fly with nine aircraft. The CT-114 Tutor while deceptive…

As some of you might have heard today is Worldwide Photo Day. IT is a celebration not just for professional photographers but for anyone who enjoys taking pictures. It is meant to honor Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre who in 1837 came up with a…

After spending a little time at Oshkosh shooting the fireworks during the night performance, I was intrigued enough to continue trying long exposures at other locations. While up at Flathead Lake the Lakeside Lodge was a perfect subject for just this.…

Have you ever been out shooting on assignment or a project, you get back and you want to go out again so you pack quickly and then as soon as you get to your next destination you realizes you grabbed the wrong gear? This usually doesn’t happen to me but…

EAA Airventure always has a lot to offer and this year was no different. One of the very special planes that was flew was Paul Poberezny’s North American P-64. For those that don’t know Paul Poberezny and his wife Audrey, started EAA many years ago. His…

The D5 has some amazing abilities but the one that I’ve spent as much time testing is shooting in the dark. At EAA Airventure they do night performances which are always spectacular. Over the years I have come to desire to the great plane with the…

The Martin Mars was without a doubt one of the biggest highlights of EAA Airventure, Oshkosh 2016. I mean that quite literally as the plane is massive! It’s not as big as Howard Hughes’s Hercules seaplane plane, also known as the Spruce Goose, but since…

Introduction

Jake has spent his whole life in photography without knowing how much it was influencing him. From the time he was a squirt, being carried around in his parent’s arms, to college where he discovered his desire for exploring the world and sharing it with everyone else; he was taught, trained, and studied under other photographers. As a striving youngster trying to make his way in both the wildlife realm and aviation photography, he continues to find new stories and new people to share them with. His on going passion pushes him to astride for greater things as his journey continues forward.
