Jakob Roze


My quest to collaborate with people who live and breathe a healthy lifestyle continues. I would say it's difficult not to be inspired by these individuals especially when we're all capable of taking care of our body the moment we realize it's far more vital than any other materialistic thing we may splurge on. This goes back to being the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with.

Jakob Roze is a NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist based in New York and we met up in at Rockaway Beach to shoot in what seemed to be one of the most humid Summer days thus far. I typically shy from ever shooting under such harsh light but having incorporated the Godox AD200 in combination with a small soft-box, I managed to illuminate those areas that would have typically been overpowered by shadow.
