Jack and his wife Mary Scott have lived in the Brevard area since 2003. He serves on the steering committee of the Land of Waterfalls Camera Club and helps coordinate the monthly programs and speakers for that organization. He does presentations, offers individual coaching on the art and craft of photography, has done photographic printing for exhibiting photographers, and is glad to have more time to devote to the craft now that he is retired from corporate life.
His work has been published in Our State North Carolina magazine, Blue Ridge Country magazine, and The Blue Ridge Travel Guide. His work has been exhibited at the Transylvania Community Arts Council and the Hollingsworth Gallery in Brevard, the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts at Appalachian State in Boone, and at The Biltmore in Asheville. His photographic interests tend toward travel, landscape, architecture, capturing the good light, and photographing people in the act of being themselves.
Jack currently exhibits at Number 7 Arts gallery where he has been a member since 2016, and serves on the board of the Transylvania Community Arts Council. Other experience includes being a special events photographer for the Brevard Music Center, photographing fundraising and other donor events with performing students and distinguished guest performers such as Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell.
Jack is active in a local photo critique group, and is regularly invited to adjudicate work for photo exhibits. While largely self-taught, he took photography and darkroom courses during college and has lifelong experience with film, print, and digital imaging.
