He started his photography business in January, 2006. Common Name, Uncommon Images is his slogan.
While the name Smith is common, Jack's photography is not, hence the business name: Smith's Uncommon Images.
In fact, his images of Texas landscapes are so vivid and artfully rendered that you my feel compelled to walk into them, as Alice through the looking glass ( a quote from an article written about Jack in the March, 2008 edition of Scene in S.A. magazine.
From fields of Texas bluebonnets, to flowing creeks, to grazing longhorn cattle, to stands of magnificent oak and maple trees, to vibrant sunrises, his photographs capture Texas at it's finest.
Capturing the beauty of nature and animals are Jack's passions and sharing these images is his mission.
His favorite subjects are mountain scenery and the wildlife that one finds there. Traveling to Alaska is one of Jack's favorite road trip adventures.
