Jacob is a Brooklyn-based freelance editorial and portrait photographer.

He has worked very closely with Steve McCurry and James Nachtwey.

Jacob recently became a finalist in the PDN Faces Photo Contest, August 2011 issue for environmental portraiture.

His work with the public schools of India has changed his life and re-directed his career. In February 2012, he will be returning to India to finish his Dirt Floors and Stone Walls project. While shooting, he is very loyal to his Nikkor 28mm 1.4 lens and Nikkor 50mm 1.4 prime.

When traveling for work he deeply misses his beautiful fiancee and two kittens.

His dream job is to shoot for non-profits around the world.
