My name is Jake McKee and I’m addicted to photography.
As a design school grad and visual thinker, I adore photography. My first camera was a Fisher Price 110 and I don’t think I shot a single was worth the film it was captured on. Over the years, I continued to shoot and continued to have marginal results.
When I found out my daughter was going to be born, I had two immediate (literally, instant) thoughts:
- How am I going to afford college for her?
- I need a better camera!
A few days later, I bought a shiny new Nikon D50, and my learning took off. It wasn’t until 2010, however, that I started getting serious about truly learning photography. I started reading tons of books, took a few classes, hired a tutor for a few sessions, and started shooting as much as I could.
This site is a collection of some of my better photos. I hope you enjoy, and if you like what you see, feel free to contact me about buying a print!
I shoot a ton of subjects, but my two main areas of focus and passion are female models and urban decay. Two very opposite ends of the spectrum!
If you’re interested in shooting with me, please contact me . I’m always looking for models to shoot with. Here’s a few things models have said about working with me:
