Welcome to Moments Beyond

Jake Moments Beyond
Me on the Highline Trail at Glacier National Park.

The images you see on this site are some of the moments that I have been fortunate enough to experience and capture in my life. However, I believe that photos have the ability to capture so much more than just a moment in time. They have the power to capture emotions, details missed or unseen, and the passage of time that we can’t really see in a single moment. I hope that you receive some of these “beyond” qualities from my photos.

Shortly after graduating from high school, my buddies and I set out on a road trip across the country from Tennessee to where the Dalton Highway crosses the  Arctic Circle in Alaska. Ten thousand miles and a lot of photos later, I was hooked on travel and photography. I spent my college years planning the next road trip. The last summer in college I went overseas for the first time and spent 10 days seeing some of the most horrifying living conditions in Kenya’s Kibera slum and the unparalleled beauty of Africa’s wildlife and scenery. This time I was hooked on experiencing the cultures and places in this world that America is far too often blind to.

The very next summer I met my future wife and once we were married a big part of our life became about our next adventure together. We ended up in Colorado where adventure and exploration is a cultural way of life. We fit in perfectly here, but still take every opportunity we get to hit the road or travel overseas. We are blessed to have been to so many places and to have had so many moments to share, but this world is a big, beautiful, heartbreaking, breathtaking place and I want to experience every one of those places in detailed moments and beyond. You can follow our adventures here and I hope this inspires you to seek out new places and find your moments beyond.

    I so agree. Photos do have the ability to capture (and evoke) emotions. You take great photos.
