Jake Ellerbrake

I am a practical image maker; whether I'm creating photographs, video, graphic art, or physical prints, my goal is to create work which communicates feelings and ideas with clarity. I am a process-oriented photographer, working with an emphasis on creating a free and enjoyable environment in my photo studio, while utilizing a wide range of film and digital formats to best serve the project at hand. Operating with a focus on respect for my clients, subjects, and collaborators is equally important to me as creating a strong final product.
