Here’s a branded content/documentary piece about Jess and his brand 174 Leatherworks. I was the DoP on this, as well as co-editor with Jai Rakic…
When his younger brother, Tim, passed away, Jess found solace in leatherwork. The strength of the blade. The scent of the cowhide. The notion of creating something by hand. Jess discovered a sense of comfort in his workshop that he couldn’t find anywhere else.
Before long, Jess’s friends and family received their belts—and more. Since progressing as a craftsman, Jess graduated to more intricate pieces such as wallets and motorcycle accessories in honor of Tim, who was an avid Motocross biker. His racing number? 174.
To this day, everything Jess creates is a tribute to his brother and a testament to the unmatched quality of handcrafted goods.
