There is nothing like a day with fresh falling snow. There is a sense of a fresh start, clean, crisp and a new beginning. It cleanses the mind and renews the spirit. It's a time of exploration and discovery, a time to look for the subtle light that softens the harsh blunt light of a clear sunny day. Snow days, are days when the tones of the gray scale come to life, blackness opens up and bright white abates. Snow days are black and white and gray days!

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.
