Hi, my name is Jim Jackson. I grew up in the Midwest and have lived in Arizona for over 35 years. My passion for photography started in 1986 after purchasing a Minolta XG-1 and a couple of lenses from a co-worker. I enjoy combining my love of the outdoors (hiking, camping and backpacking) with landscape and wildlife photography. My travels have taken me to several beautiful locations in the U.S., Canada, Europe and New Zealand. I also enjoy photographing rodeos throughout Arizona and New Mexico. I look forward to spending time with like minds at Arizona Highways PhotoScapes events and workshops!
