Jacob Raab started his journey as an impressionable young trumpet player who moved from Indianapolis to Portland in search of adventure. Since moving west, he has grown into a full-blown alpinist and mountain runner — two disciplines that require many of the same improvisatory sensibilities as in his jazz roots. His ideal style is a hybrid of mountain running and minimalist alpine rock — fast-and-light adventure climbs that are low in technical difficulty but high in commitment. He has climbed traditional (5.9) and sport (5.10b) rock routes in Yosemite, Moab, Devil's Tower, and countless other geologic playgrounds; water ice routes in CO, WY, OR, and MI (yes, Michigan!); and mountaineering routes on the snowy giants of the Cascades as well as the Cordillera Blanca in Peru.
In an attempt to bring his newfound adventures back to friends and family in the Midwest, Jacob started taking his camera up the mountains and on the trails. He has since then had the pleasure of working (playing) with close friends, world-class athletes, and the amazing outdoor recreation community at large, shooting for notable outdoor organizations including the Mazamas and the American Alpine Club.
Jacob's most recent musical endeavors include playing trumpet/flugelhorn with a reggae band in Portland and an acoustic trio in Moab, and honing his singer-songwriter chops on the piano at the Heretic House. Multiple future projects are also on the horizon; performing, recording, and composing are all in the works, so stay tuned to see what comes next!
Always open to new adventures, and bringing with him a diverse skillset — both creative and technical — Jacob is an excellent addition to an expedition team as a photographer or support staff. He is equipped to handle conditions anywhere on the globe and prepared to suffer for the shot, whether behind the lens or in front of it...and he probably won't say no if you ask him to come.
Never Ever Stop exploring, right?
