At just 24 years of age, it's genuinely hard to fathom the amount of quality work Jake Darwen has produced in his skate photography career. Born in New Zealand but now based in Melbourne, Jake has established himself as a game-changer among lensmen in the skate world with his bubbling creativity and meticulous attention to detail and lighting.
It comes as no surprise to us that Jake was named the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown winner for 2017, after being nominated for the first time to 'compete' at the event in Whistler last weekend. Jake put together a slideshow of his best work from his time travelling the world over the last several years, and it's nothing short of inspirational. Whether you skate or not, Darwen's work will blow you away. Watch and marvel above.
