Biography: Jack began shooting professionally at 18 years of age at the Sydney Morning Herald. He has photographed subjects including US President George W Bush, HRH Queen Elizabeth, Pope Benedict XVI, multiple Australian Prime Ministers, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods, Michael Schumacher, Valentino Rossi, Richard Branson, Sting and The Rolling Stones, to name a few.

Jack started off covering hard news, and then spent the next 12 years covering major international sporting events, such as the Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games, Formula 1 and the Rugby World Cup. Between 1999-2002, Jack worked as Official Photographer to the Australian Cricket Team, and toured directly with the side. In late 2009, he was invited to shoot the interior of the Sydney Opera House's new Western Wing foyer for the Sydney Opera House Trust. In 2010, he was invited to complete a full documentation of the world heritage-listed building and its surrounds, and then, in 2011, he was appointed by the Sydney Opera House Trust to document their Vehicle Access and Pedestrian Safety Project (VAPS) for the next three and a half years. The project (2011-14) will see the largest architectural changes to the Sydney Opera House site since it was first built.
