Jakob, 18, studies at a sports high school in central Slovakia and has a part-time job teaching kids parkour and freerunning along with his friend, Leo. Jakob has been into sports since a very young age and said that he had tried everything—from handball, basketball and ping pong to boxing and Muay Thai.
Jokob is a very sweet, friendly and openminded guy. He’s typically very calm and easy-going, although (a bit to my surprise) he did get a bit nervous during the photoshoot, especially in the beginning. He said it was just something he needed to get used to. We unfortunately didn’t photograph any parkour stunts this time around, but I’m planning to get Jakob and Leo together for a parkour-themed photoshoot when the weather gets warmer.
