Jacob was a Burning Man Photographer in 2017. While at Burning Man Jacob was able to photograph many notable musicians, artists, sculptures, and art installations. Most notable among them are Skrillex, Tycho, Slander, the Disco Fish, Thunderdome, the Tree of Tenere, the Mayan Warrior, Illumina, and so much more!

Jacob Schlichter’s astro photo titled “HWY 105” was the Cover photo for the Accentra Credit Union 2020 Calendar.

On Sept. 9th, 2021, Jacob Schlichter had a gallery opening at the Austin Area Artworks Center.

The subject matter for the gallery exhibition was the Minneapolis Geroge Floyd Protests.

Jacob spent multiple hours every other day driving up and down to Minneapolis and many more nights unable to leave due to the 8pm curfew that was enforced. He dealt with being maced, meeting neo nazis, multiple run-ins with the national guard, and even having a flash-bang round explode on his leg thus cutting open his leg. His intentions while protesting and documenting were to show everyone that there was more than just rioting and looting going on. Jacob documented several touching moments of speakers, lawyers, and other educational seminars going on during these protests. He captured a city mourning and coming together at a time when it felt like corruption had rotted our municipalities to their core. No matter what you believe in Jacob just wants everyone to know that we all have a lot in common with each other so always be willing to have a conversation and to love and protect your neighbor.
