He has worked high up in tropical rainforest canopies, under the sea, and much of in-between.

Jake Bryant is a British photographer based in California. His work has been exhibited and published both in the USA and internationally.
In 2013 Jake received a National Science Foundation award (CRPA) to curate and display works covering a four year commission documenting scientific field research for the NSF’s Amazon PIRE (Partnership for International Research and Education). This work included working in the forest canopies across the Amazon basin, resulting is a large scale exhibition of environmental portraits held at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum during 2015.
He has also worked with film maker Luc Jacquet (March of the Penguins) documenting the ‘making of’ the feature movie Once Upon a Forest, which “invites the spectator into a never-before-seen world of natural wonder and staggering beauty’. https://www.wildbunch.biz/movie/once-upon-a-forest/
He focuses on social documentary and environmental portraiture, dividing time between assignments and working on personal projects. He is driven by self-initiated projects that combine his interest in people, landscapes, science, and the ever changing natural environment. He does his utmost to understand those he photographs and the environments he captures, in order to present them positively and creatively. His approach is to gain an honest connection between photographer and subject.
