This hobby can only last as long as my interest in life remains.

I shoot in visible light using film cameras mainly and an Apple iPhone. I develop black and white negatives myself.

I shoot in infrared using a modded Canon 5D. Featured on Jerry's IR Blog

    "his style is wonderful.. and unique.
    his photos are enchanting picture: you see them, and you enter on a surreal and fashinating world, in which everything is harmonious and simply beautiful.
    ...I love his works."

    "Elf-Y's/Jack's photos are something to behold. He is a consistently showing me how to see things from different and new perspectives. If you take a look at his stream, which most of us should really, you will discover a whole new world of colours, shapes and textures. Jack mostly portray things, he explores them and makes them seem fresh and new. He is never afraid to try out new stuff, and does so with almost every shot. With a combination of abstracts and close-ups (and the once in a while surprise photo) he never cease to amaze me, and I'm really happy to have Jack as one of my most loyal and enthusiastic contacts.

    Keep on shooting, I know both you and I love every minute of it. And keep on refining your style, as it is a truly unique element here on flickr. Cheers!"

    "Elf-Y has the exact opposite photographic philosophy and artistic ethic from mine. I disagree with him on just about every front. And yet I love his work."
