I am a photographic artist, writer and educator. My photographic practice explores notions of home, belonging, folklore and the natural landscape. My writing interests include photography and expanded media: moving image, mobile photography and computer generated imagery. I have taught as a Lecturer in Photography at the University of Hertfordshire, Coventry University, Anglia Ruskin University, University of the Arts London and the University of West London
Jake Vincent was brought up right on the edge of the Somerset Levels just outside of the city of Wells.
Always having had an appreciation for art stemming from his father’s artistic background, he endeavours to bring his own sense of composition and drama to his photographic works. In particular he enjoys trying to convey the scale while at the same time the detail in the landscape through his large panoramic photos.
Jake is entirely self-taught as a Landscape photographer, believing that the best way to learn is through experience - to get to know the land, the season, the light and the photographic techniques involved.
Great care has gone into producing each photograph right through from capture to print. The photographs themselves are fittingly printed on Somerset paper produced locally at St.Cuthberts Paper Mill at Wookey Hole. Only the highest quality materials are used both in printing and in framing.
