Jeff the Cameraman is first seen in Nepal alongside Elena, covering the war and, more specifically, the warlord Zoran Lazarevic. Nathan Drake insists that Elena and Jeff follow him due to danger of the warzone, although this is against Elena's and Chloe's wishes. Nevertheless, Jeff and Elena follow Nathan and Chloe to the temple containing the map to Shambala, although he and Elena are told to wait outside. This unfortunately leads to Jeff being gravely wounded by the pursuing Lazarevic forces. Nathan attempts to carry Jeff to safety, but reaching a ledge in which one could only jump unhindered, the group stops and are surrounded by Lazarevic's forces. Lazarevic then finishes Jeff off, ending his fabulous adventures.
When not suffering from a terrible stomach wound, Jeff is a rather capable adventurer, able to perform the same acrobatic leaps that the rest of the crew perform.
