Photographer Takes Magical Photos Of Kids And Animals In The American Midwest

ADVERTISEMENT

Jake Olson, an award-winning professional photographer and graphic artist from Nebraska, takes beautiful photos that are dripping with Midwestern aesthetic and spirit. His images inspire dreams of wide-open skies, gentle winds, and amber waves of grain.

Olson’s backstory is just as inspiring as his images. Believe it or not, he was 38 when he decided to pick up a digital camera for the first time. Until then, he had worked in the jewelry industry with a number of famous jewelers. His story proves that it’s never too late to make a change in your life and follow your passion.

Despite the fact that many of the kids’ photos share a similar Midwestern setting, Olson keeps them fresh with beautiful lighting and a few cute kids paired with adorable animals. The wide-open fields and rural-style clothing give them a strong Americana aesthetic.

If his switch was a mid-life crisis, it looks like it was a successful one. Olson is an award-winning photographer whose children photography has been featured in numerous prestigious publications and has worked with fairly famous clients.

There is a beast with heart of cold stone that dashes like lightning, shreds flesh from bone. // Bewitched by this beast, I fell to my knees. My mouth babbled madness and mumbled soft pleas. // I stared down the ravenous, gnashing dark maw of a cute cuddly kitten with yarn in its paw

Cheesy, predicatable photography made by an egotistical, self promoting sociopath to cater for people of limited and pedestrian taste.
