Hello!

My name is Jacob and I love taking photos and talking about history! I'm excited to bring you on my experience!

I'm a photographer, filmmaker, and musician with seven years of experience in portrait photography. I grew up in Hawai'i and have a passion for learning the history of each place I live.

I love to pour over documentaries and history textbooks to uncover the full story of a place and use that in my photography and other forms of art.

While living here in San Juan, I've really come to appreciate the rich history and I'm looking forward to sharing that with you while we grab some great photos.

    This was one of the highlights of our stay! Jacob clearly knows what he's doing and has a wonderful eye and technique for photography. Not just that, but he's also an excellent guide. During the photo walk he also told us about the sights we were seeing and the history of San Juan. Loved that we were also learning and exploring while taking a lot of awesome pics. Thanks Jacob!

    I’m so happy I went on this experience! Jacob picked out great spots for photos, and even told us about the history of landmarks while we were walking. It was nice to be in a small group. We weren’t rushed at all and took plenty of photos. Jacob also recommended a restaurant that we really enjoyed afterward.

    Jacob is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone! He made my birthday so special, and the walk was not bad at all. ProTip, bring water 😅 we forgot ours, but he reminds you it was our fault we forgot ours 🥵
