Home » About Richard
Rick and his wife Jill lead the kind of life most outdoor enthusiasts only dream about. Spending as much as six months each year traveling the world in search of wildlife in their natural habitat.
Using camouflage blinds and telephoto lenses, the Jacksons spend countless hours patiently waiting for the "soul catching" image that defines their style.
Photographing with 35mm Nikon equipment on slide film, the Jacksons edit and print each image. Using archival techniques, they mount and mat with acid free materials to ensure years of viewing pleasure. Each photograph is a limited edition of 500, and all are numbered and signed.
Richard's skill as a photographer and his love of natural history made wildlife photography an obvious career choice. A career that he has been practicing for over twenty six years. Richard Jackson's photographs have been published in National Audubon Magazine, Outdoor California Magazine, on Sierra Club posters, and are shown in private collections around the world. It is their deep appreciation for all things which exist naturally, that motivates them to photograph and preserve on film the things which they feel are in danger of disappearing. Surely if there is to be a place for man on earth there must be a place for all other living things. Richard and Jill presently make their home in Sonoma, California.
