Jake Scharfman

Jake was raised climbing and hiking the mountains of California and exploring the West’s deserts with his parents and friends. After a few years of rock climbing, he decided to implement his passion for digital arts into the sport. At the age of 17, he booked his first shoot. Another two years later at the age of 19, he left his home in the Bay Area and moved to Squamish to pursue climbing, photography, and school full time.

Jake has a profound love for both climbing and photography and has the intention to pursue both throughout life. He hopes to share these passions with as many people as possible and make friends along the way.

He now works in the climbing industry but continues to pursue his passion for creativity and taking photos in the places he loves.
