"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.”

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.
