Jakub Sisak is a landscape and nature photographer based in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. He is primarily focused on the unique local landscape and nature found in Northwestern Ontario especially the North Shores of Lake Superior with an aim to capture the spirit and the essence of the moment in his photographs. Born and raised in Czechoslovakia, he finds everything about the natural environment in Northern Ontario new and interesting, even after more than 20 years. Jakub loves to hike and explore the local land in search of new places, subjects and angles and frequents his favorite shooting locations to encounter new weather and light conditions and fresh compositional elements such as that piece driftwood that wasn’t there on a prior visit.
Shooting photographs on location is only a part of the process. As no camera can record exactly what the eye sees and the soul feels, he often employs various post-processing techniques to add his own “touch” to the scene in order to capture the feeling and mood of the moment as he himself felt it.
With an intent to showcase the magical beauty of this unique area and its nature, he hopes that his photographs can evoke an emotional response in every viewer. His photographs (available for purchase on this site) have earned him a number of awards and have also been published in several local and regional magazines, newspapers and calendars.
