Jake has humility. He is observant and diligent and I like working with him.
A couple of years ago when I started re-crafting the current image of Barbour, we needed to also restate our country authority. Lose that …and Barbour loses all credibility. Jake was the perfect photographer to do this. He delivers iconic imagery, from a perspective of a man’s eye who is totally in tune with nature. Without ego or cliché, and always with a fresh, powerful beauty. I now see he can take his talents to many subject areas, and so I look forward immensely to my next project with him.

The heart of Mulberry lies in the Somerset countryside (where the company was founded and our two UK factories are based), so it was incredibly lucky to find such a talented photographer who is based there and thus intrinsically understands the core values of our brand.
Jake’s strength lies in his versatility – he is both comfortable taking direction on a shoot as he is confident in shooting on his own and delivering beautiful results.
His calm nature puts people at ease, which is essential when shooting subjects not used to being in front of the camera, and makes him a delight to work with.

When it comes to taking natural images Jake manages to capture the action and the atmosphere in one shot. Once he receives the brief, he anticipates the situation well, is discreet and quietly gets on with the job in hand. All you have to do is wait for the amazing image and he never disappoints.

|We have worked with Jake Eastham at Pol Roger Champagne since 2011 and have only ever been truly overjoyed with his work. Every time we constructed a brief for Jake he over-delivered and got us the shots we weren’t sure we needed but then wondered why we hadn’t asked for them in the first place. His work with natural light, movement and bringing his subjects alive is unique.
We cannot afford to compromise on what is essentially an international projection of our brand. Jake knows intimately our style and focus which makes working with him and Lou so easy. We cannot recommend Jake’s work highly enough and look forward to working with him increasingly in the future.
