With over 10 years of collective experience in photography and videography in the UAE, John and Jake have collaborated frequently to develop their shared style. They formed Lands from a shared understanding of what wedding photography in this region needs – a team who can offer complete video & photography services who work in harmony to capture your day in a way that is individually tailored to each couple.

I studied photography in France and had the opportunity to work alongside the Collective Item in Lyon who shadowed me during my final year. I have also trained with photojournalist Philip Blenkinsop and worked as a wedding photographer for 3 years.
I fell in love video, the 3 dimensional aspect and the endless possibilities allow me to tell stories in a completely new way. From arial views using drones to close ups of those smiles, I love putting all of those clips together to document your special day.

After Graduating from UCLAN in 2004, I have always worked in the creative industries. I decided to go freelance in 2017 after working with two of the Middle East’s largest publishing houses.
I have worked with brands such as Ikea, Viceroy Hotels, Emirates, Dubai Airports, ITP Media Group, Motivate Publishing, Dubai Tourism, Porter & Sail, Kcal, Property Finder, Jumeirah Hotels Group, DWTC among many others.
