Every landscape and nature photographer needs a Jack. In Norse mythology and later adopted in Welsh lore, a “Jack” was a youthful hero that fought and slew giants against all odds. My “Jack” continues that fine tradition acting as guide, coach and sometimes pack mule during our trips through Texas.
My success as a landscape photographer is due in no small part to his unwavering ability to guide me to the ends of the earth (Texas actually) for that one great shot, without getting us both killed. Jack is a resource no landscape photographer should be without.
He looks taller in real life 🙂
Have a joyous and safe Thanksgiving my friends!
