Jaka Vinšek is a Slovenian-born, Brooklyn-based photographer and cinematographer. His personal projects focus on the passion of others, from athletes pushing their bodies to the limit to medical professionals helping those in need. Exploring diverse cultures and alternative lifestyles, Jaka’s work seeks intimate moments within the unfamiliar.
Since relocating to the United States in 2010, Jaka has assisted photographer Frederic Lagrange for few years. After he started his own photographic career he has worked with a variety of documentary, fashion and lifestyle clients. Beside his photographic work, he also shot two award-winning, feature-length documentaries: Defining Hope, which examines end of life treatment in America, and The American Nurse, which showcases the lives and incredible stories of nurses across the country. Both films have been shown in theaters throughout the US.
