1. I had the extreme honor of photographing former Sudanese Lost Boy Machot Lat Thiep for the new issue of VICE magazine. The entire issue is about the problems that have faced South Sudan. Machot now lives a happy simpler life here in America but the issue follows him back to Sudan for the first time since he escaped.

     
  2. The Infamous Mobb Deep! Had a chance to briefly photograph one of Hip Hop’s legendary duo’s last week. Really makes me feel old to find out their iconic album is being re-released for its 20 year anniversary this month. Havoc and Prodigy were super chill and great to talk with. Kinda trips me out to meet a group that 2pac personally called out on “hit em up” haha

     
  3. Had a great shoot with Master Sommelier Chris Tanghe at his resturaunt Aragona for this past weekend edition of The Wall Street Journal. Seattle is one of the cities leading the rise in Somm’s achieving the prestigious wine title. I was also excited to find out my buddy Erich Ginder made the very cool wallpaper i chose to photograph him against.

     
  4. Shoshone Falls, Idaho. Happy Earth Day!

     
  5. Some shots for Close By Shop’s new baseball inspired spring products. Big thanks to Ryan who modeled for the shoot. It sometimes pays to ask random strangers you see at a bar to be in a shoot when you have a good vibe about it.

     
  6. More from my editorial shoot with Totokaelo. Ashley Helvey killing it on the styling. Jenny Bowker on hair/makeup.

     
  7. I had the pleasure of shooting a 36 hours travel story in Hood River, OR for this Sundays New York Times. Big thanks to the homie Dan Cronin for coming out to drink copious amounts of good beer (aka assisting me). Huge thanks to Jamie Israelow for the great assignment. The story is online HERE but be sure to check out the paper on Sunday.

     
  8. 36Hours in Hood River, OR for The New York Times. Part 2

     
  9. I photographed David Malcom for AAA’s Journey Magazine. Malcom (who is in his 70’s) toured on his bike this past year from Seattle, WA all the way to Denali National Park in Alaska. The trip was done to raise money for Leukemia charities. Malcom is in far better shape than I and it was rad trading stories during our shoot about camping/outdoor adventures we have both had.

     
  10. I kept the duck my friend killed on our Filson Life hunt and decided to do a little food shoot with it. Thanks to chef Brandon Petit of Delancey/Essex for his Asian Wing inspired Wood Fired Duck. Also thanks to Ashley Rodriguez for help on Food Styling.

     
  11. A few snaps from my recent Look Book shoot for HUF/Alive&Well’s newest collab. DBSEA features some great new gear including an ebbots field flannells jacket, Functional Pipe/Coffee Mug Combo, Cafe Vita Coffee, Snap Backs, Crew Necks, Hoodies and more.

  14. Winter Steelheading Short Video

    Winter Steelheading 2014 from Jacob Rosen on Vimeo.

    Its probably no secret I have gotten wayyy into fly fishing this year. All winter I have pursued the most epic/elusive/beautiful of all NW fish species.  The Steelhead. My buddy cinemetographer Jacob Rosen joined me to shoot some video on one of these many adventures and somehow captured the tail end of my first ever successful battle with a steelhead on the fly. We cut this fun little video together from that day of fishing. enjoy!
