Zak Jokela

When my little sister graduated high school a few years ago, she decided that she wanted to go to college in L.A. At the time, I was a bartender, and her decision made me realize that I could go somewhere and do something other than staying up all night, sleeping all day, and slinging drinks in North Dakota. So I decided to go back to school in Chicago and chase after my passion for photography.

Since moving to Chicago, I have obtained a degree in digital photography. I shot in a high capacity production studio for product photography for almost a year. I also freelance, and most recently, I have dedicated a space in my home as a darkroom for processing film and making enlargements.

I shoot every day. I have to now. I just don’t feel right if I don’t.

Hi, my name is Zak Jokela.
