"Any type of photography has a story that needs to be told."

Meet the thirty9 Photographer

Growing up, Jake Matthews was not artistic or creative; sports was his main priority. All that changed in college when Jake found himself with a burning desire to communicate how he was seeing the world. In search of an outlet for that need, he stumbled upon photography and hasn’t stopped shooting since. “Photography has become the way I see, the way I communicate, and the thing that makes me feel alive. I can guarantee I’ll never stop shooting.” Vibrant and powerful storytelling best describes Jake’s photography style. He wants his photos to pack a punch, from the content to the composition, color, and contrast, Jake strives to achieve authentic impact with his imagery. He remains inspired by the idea that every day he is presented with the opportunity to grow in his ability to be creative and tell a story. Since he spends about half of each year traveling the world, Jake finds plenty of creative inspiration in the people and cultures he encounters. “I hope anyone who views my photos can see the passion that I have for each one I take. There isn’t one photo I’ve taken carelessly; each one is an extension of my heart, mind and eye.”
