He’s an absolute legend on the board, behind the lens and most recently helped curate the aesthetic of Numeric over at New Balance as they’ve developed a seriously stacked team over the years.
We asked him a few quick questions ahead of his Nine Club episode which released today.
Where’s the best skate spot back home?
What food do ya miss most from NZ?
I miss Burgerfuel the most! Or Pizza Barn in Waipu
What’s your favourite piece of kit in your camera bag at the moment?
My Nikon Fm2 is my favourite thing in my camera bag for sure!
New Balance just dropped a signature colourway of the Numeric 440 High’s as a representation of the hard work that he’s put in over the years. They feature a translucent sole, reflective detailing, and some cheeky kiwi insole art. Not to mention there’s a QR code linking through to a gallery of Jake’s work.
Wanting to know more than just what food Jake misses? How did he end up in the States shooting these incredible photos? Check out his Nine Club episode above and listen in as he sits down with Chris Roberts and co to discuss growing up in New Zealand, skateboarding, photography and more! We’re super stoked to tune in and learn more about the man behind the lens.
