As an artist, creating personal work is vital. With no deadlines, rules, timelines... there is only your creative medium and your mind. Jacob will demonstrate how act of creating personal work is where new ideas and directions are born, shaping future client work or even more personal work. He will inspire you to explore your imagination to open up new creative directions we didn’t even realize we had within us. Exploring personal work is allowing our minds be free and encouraging our imagination to be turned all the way up. Jacob will inspire you to turn it on and turn it up.
I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park.

What we do, as photographers, matters; and it matters a lot. What do people want to save when a house is burning down, being overtaken by a flood, or threatened by a tornado; what is the one possession people always hope to grab? Their photos; their irreplaceable family memories. Memories matter, and it's up to us as photographers to make sure that we capture their best selves. How do we do that? The experience.
