My goal as a photographer is to get out there and capture what nature has to offer. I'm fortunate to call Alaska home. I'm looking forward to exploring my home and beyond to see where it takes me; to capture images and moments that I will enjoy for years to come.
Each image takes me back to that moment when I was simply there...
Jackammo phonetically sounds like "dyak-ammo," which means "I don't know" in my native language of Ilocano. When I was beginning to learn about photography, I really didn't know what I was doing. I still don't know what I'm doing now but that's besides the point. Anyway, I wanted to create a Facebook page to share my images. I asked my wife and kids what I should name the page. One by one they said "I don't know." I couldn't think of anything better so I used Jackammo Photography.
Yup, Jackammo Photography really means "I don't know" Photography. Even though I have learned a lot since then, I have kept this name to remind me of how I started.
