Photography was always an interest of Jack’s and he was often seen with a camera in his hand while growing up. At the age of 19 Jack acquired his first DSLR camera, this interest soon developed into a passion for photography.
During his university years Jack worked for several alternative nightclubs as a nightclub photographer, these included The Session, FUEL, The Garage, Southern Fried and Brighton Beach which allowed Jack to combine photography and his other passion for music.
This love of music has led Jack into the gig photography field of photography and a after a number of years photographing the local music festival Bands On The Square Jack had enough experience to acquire his first press accreditation to photography the band Therapy? back in 2016. Since then he has worked for a number of online publications and photographed many of his favourite bands bands including Nickelback, Good Charlotte, Theory of a Deadman and Skillet.
