Behind the Camera

Hello, my name is Jakob Lilja-Ruiz and I am an Adventure Lifestyle Photographer & Videographer based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. My passion for the outdoors has fueled my journey as a storyteller thus far often taking me deep into isolated wilderness areas. Photography started as a training exercise in film school quickly tuned into an obsession for chasing light. Four years after picking up a camera I’ve completed Associate of Science in Digital Filmmaking, worked in the film industry, and most recently left my 9 to 5 to follow my passion full time. My goal is to highlight the untold stories that develop around us everyday.
