About the Instructors, Jack & Guy
While he considers himself primarily a “Landscape” photographer, Jack has photographed for commercial and corporate clients, led several photographic workshops, and instructed novice through advanced photographers in a variety of photographic venues. Jack’s work has been exhibited in galleries from California to New York, and the Bibliothèque Nationale selected one of Jack’s images to be part of a collection they procured on “Images of the American Southwest.” Today he remains passionate in his pursuit of creating photographic art and enjoys photographing most anything from architecture and machinery to people and wildlife. However, when pressed to choose a favorite photographic subject, Jack replies, “I love photographing the natural landscape.” Jack is a co-owner of the GetDPI photography forums and enjoys sharing his 30+ years of experience and ideas with others online via the discussion threads found there. Jack also enjoys the hands-on teaching provided by the GetDPI photography workshop series he and his business partner Guy Mancuso lead together. He and Guy are also selected instructors for the Phase One 'PODAS' series of workshops. Jack lives with his wife Susan and their three children in Los Altos, California.
