Ok, I have to be honest here, I walk into the lobby of this hotel,
looked up and just started shooting away! I had no preconcieved
idea for these images as a project :-)
I have always been attracted to the dynamics of functional
design and the many structural constructs that result from
human engineering. I find the physical structures to be one of
the most photographically interesting subjects. Man made
structures offer the opportunity to explore details and the
complexity of intersecting light and shapes.

You might say there was a natural collision of circumstances between Jack’s nearly lifelong love of nature, and that of photography. His wondrous journey into nature began when he attended an Outward Bound month-long wilderness course at age 16. At 18, (just over 40 years ago) he picked up his first camera, developed his first B&W print in the darkroom and quickly put his two passions together.

In recent years Jack’s photography has been exhibited in Paris, Athens, Berlin, Moscow, and Malaga Spain and domestically in the US and published internationally.

Awards Jack has been internationally awarded, having won Gold or 1st place in IPA, PX3, ND Awards, Moscow International Foto Awards, Tokyo International Foto Awards, International Gala/Pollux Awards, Black and White Spider Awards and Black and White Photography Magazines Portfolio Awards. Most recently in 2018, Jack was voted the #2 Black and White photographer globally by One Eyeland.
