"Everyone knows Washington is photogenic but no one knows this better than Jake McGuire. It is McGuire’s sensitivity to his subject that is central....though these monumental landscapes and structures are the same ones we have seen in thousands of other pictures all our lives, they have a different, more personal quality in being grazed by McGuire’s lens and the heightened, sometimes curious, lighting he knows precisely when and how to select for...to us Jake and the District seem inseparable.”

Beyond Washington

Native Washingtonian Jake McGuire has been shooting photographs of our Nation's Capital for more than 30 years. His stately photos have appeared in hundred of publications, including airline and travel magazines, major newspapers and endless brochures, calendars, note cards and annual reports.


His fine art photgraphs decorate the walls of law firms, associations, government relations offices, aerospace and defense contractors, hotels, institutions, banks, restaurants and agencies. Let McGuire decorate your organization's reception area, conference room, offices or even long hallways with gallery quality images.



"McGuire is edgy, nutty, romantic..nimble in his walk and talk..spreading mischievous wisdom around."

McGuire on Assignment in Paris

In addition to photographing his home town, McGuire has extensive experience around the world in journalism as a travel photographer, food and wine writer, and restaurant critic.


He offers private photography lessons as well as lively culinary tours (or a combination of both) for individuals and small groups to wine producing regions around the world. From an afternoon in the Virginia wine country (just outside Washington, DC) to a week in Napa, Sonoma, Tuscany or Provence, McGuire can guide you or your group on a memorable culinary adventure.
