WELCOME TO THE FAMILY - JAKE DARWEN

Jake Darwen has a remarkable gift; the Kiwi kid is breaking new ground on what is possible in skateboard photography. Each snap of his shutter comes after a meticulously planned picture is carefully composed in his mind’s eye. 

After making the move to Australia in 2012, Jake quickly made himself known in Australian skateboarding, his prolific submissions peppered the pages of Slam & Skateboarders Journal. 

His extraordinary ability to creatively capture the landscape around the subject, utilise strobes or natural light with intricate detail will no doubt see him become one of the world’s leading skateboarding photographers.

We're stoked to officially welcome Jake into the Element family. 

(Oh, and just so you know, we stole most of these words from the kind folk at Slam magazine)
