Hi, I’m Jacob, the founder of Digital Journey Photography.
My company might be small now, but gee, do I have some big plans!
I first picked up a camera when I was a toddler, but I started taking pictures when I was 10. That was with an old digital camera my parents had. You know the one, it’d always come out at a family gathering for those awkward group shots..
Things have progressed a little since then. As my photography improved so did my equipment. I’m now rocking a Canon EOS R5 which is my absolute pride and joy. That’s the only secret of my work I’ll let you in on!
There’s something about photography I just love. Its the peacefulness of nature. The attention to detail it requires. How you can take the most abstract and strange setting and turn it into a beautiful capture of time.
I created this website in 2018 to showcase not only my own work, but the beauty of what the world has to offer. My profits go back into my photography, which I hope to use to raise awareness of the importance of land and wildlife conservation. I want my images to be a reminder of what you can go out in nature to see, not what used to be in the past.
What money doesn’t go there is donated to various charities and organisations to empower people, like me, to pursue their passions and make the most out of life.
I hope you enjoy my work just as much as I enjoy showcasing it to you.
