Limited Edition Photographs

Photography is about capturing moments. Even if we’re deeply sensitive to appreciating them, what goes by, sometimes in an 8,000 th of a second, is not exactly a moment we can cherish. Photography allows us to do that. It also allows us to focus on the beauty of something we might otherwise step over, walk or drive by, even if we’ve paused to say “isn’t that pretty” or “isn’t that interesting.” We can learn from taking longer to look at things, and focusing on things we might otherwise pass or take for granted.

My primary photographic interest is capturing landscapes and skyscapes and the differing effect ever changing light has on a foreground. The light that interests me most may only be available for a few minutes on the occasional day. As my father, Bruce Jackson, once said to me “I don’t believe in luck, I believe in ready.” So I try to be ready, and often am walking around with a camera slung over my shoulder already set up for the light I’m anticipating or, as often is the case, hoping for. I spend quite a bit of time preparing for any shoot that I’ve actually planned, whether it’s cleaning the camera and lenses, bringing the right filters I might use, using all available tools to plan the direction and timing of my shoots, and studying the geography and celestial views as necessary.
