I’m Jake Thomas Shaw, The Host of Radio Reality City.
If you’re in the Tacoma and Olympia areas, you might catch me at poetry slam events! I have been a featured poet on behalf of the Creative Colloquy, and published in various ways across Tacoma and Puyallup.
Aside from written content, I also do digital arts; namely photography.
Currently shooting with a Sony A7iii and Alpha 6300. My offhand equipment includes the Helios 40-2 and 44-2 as my right-hand lenses, along with a Fotodiox Pronto autofocus adapter for a lot of my artistic photography.
My A6300 has been converted by Kolari Vision to shoot in full spectrum, which includes ultraviolet light and near infrared wavelengths as well as visible light. I also have an IR Chrome filter engineered by Kolari Vision, made to replicate the light transmission properties of Kodak Aerochrome III 1443 film stock.
Certified in Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Leica and Olympus digital imaging, but specializing in Fujufilm and Sony products of my own volition.
As far as imagery goes, I also have a hand in graphic design and other digital arts. My tablet allows me to draw things in the Gnu Image Manipulation Program.
I am the pilot of the Reality City Monarch, a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone; and the Ronin, a custom Tiny Whoop fpv racing drone. Currently pursuing my sUAS certification to fly commercially.
I am currently allowed to use music by the artists Kauf (kaufaudio.com), Tape (tape.se), and Tycho (https://ghostly.com/artists/tycho), so long as the use of them isn’t monetized and the artists are given proper credits where they appear in my productions. I genuinely enjoy the music, and I highly recommend you check them all out!
Aside from all of that, all of the assets on here are original works by yours truly. I will allow fair use usage of my work, provided you get permission first by emailing me at the address listed below.
