Mike Svach is an amateur photographer who loves to show off Ohio. He grew up in the Cincinnati area and has spent several years photographing southern Ohio’s finest landscapes. The Cincinnati skyline and the Roebling bridge are his two favorite things to shoot.

Mike’s father showed him how to use a camera many years ago. It was after his passing that his love for photography was rekindled. Mike says he is married to a wonderfully supportive wife and has 3 children and a few grandkids as well. It’s common for his wife and two dogs to travel around with him in search of waterfalls or just to hike around on some of Ohio’s breathtaking trails.

He says Ohio has so many amazing places to see and visit. He is looking forward to many years of sharing his travels across the state through his photographs.

Jake loves getting to explore Ohio. He tries to go where he hasn't been before in Ohio to simply see all that this state offers. People around the area often compare this place to the western side of the U.S. This typically follows up with the complaint of how flat and "boring" Ohio is. Jacob takes that to heart and challenges himself to prove Ohios' great beauty. He says " You just have to look a little harder then others to find those places." Jake documents his adventures with both both, photography and cinematography. Video is his career path and also his strong side.

Photography is more of a fun get away or hobby of his. He doesn't prefer one nor the other. Jacob is passionate about both. Ohio offers such a verity of places. He loves where he lives because of the architecture and pure history that is Granville. But on the contrary, Jake loves the modern scene in Columbus. Wether that means long boarding with friends in the Short North to capture minimalist like coffee shops. Or capturing a bride and groom's first look on video in the Hilton Bridge in the center of down town.

He loves driving an hour or two on the many back roads of Ohio. Getting lost, but not having a care in the world, because he got exactly what he searching for. That one photo or video clip people often ask..."Where was this taken??" His answer is followed up with something along the lines of, "Not sure...drove out into the middle of nowhere to get that shot." So all in all, Jacob thinks Ohio is challenging in many ways as an artist, but more so than often rewording in every way.
He says he loves this place [Ohio]. Follow Jacob's Ohio adventures on Instagram at @jake__sapp!
