About Me.  

I'm 38, living in Upstate New York (near Utica). 

I started "taking pictures" ten years ago when I realized there were so many interesting subjects, situations, and landscapes that I didn't want to forget. 

While carefully posed portraits and studio backdrops certainly have their place, I find candid, spontaneous pictures tell much more of a story. 


I pursue photography as an art rather than a job, focusing on subjects like angry people, emotionally charged situations, hard times, the innocence of youth, and interesting places or times. 

To me, a spur-of-the-moment "low-fi" snapshot of a moment that can't be replicated is over a carefully poised portrait anyday. 

I hope you enjoy my work. All inquiries please email to me at jake.lorraine@gmail.com
