March 3, 2014
With bittersweet joy, I want to share with you, my family, friends, and clients, that I have decided to retire from the photography business. For nearly 25 years I have enjoyed heading into the studio, and tackling the assignments entrusted to Photo Source.
My first photo life was running a consumer portrait studio in North County, providing services to families, brides, high school seniors, etc. Those years were from 1981-1989. I wasn’t satisfied because I had the need to create images, and not just take pictures. I decided to move into the advertising and commercial world of image making. In November of 1989 I opened Photo Source in the Westport area. Over the years I have had more than a thousand bosses who always challenged me to pre-conceive a visual and create the images they envisioned.
Photo Source is looking forward to completing this month’s assignments, however the key will go into the door for the last time on March 31, 2014. I will be in contact with many of you in the next couple of weeks to discuss any needs you may have from our image archive. I will be stepping back, taking a look into the future, making some time for myself, and working on self-assignments which I haven’t had time for. Honestly, I’m not sure what my tomorrows will bring, however for nearly 25 years, my tomorrows have brought me much joy, satisfaction, and an enrichment of life.
The joys of working with so many creatives, well words cannot explain just how I feel. To all who have granted and welcomed my studio team to be a part of your team, I thank you
I hope the friendships we have built and enjoyed over the years will continue, and that our paths will cross frequently. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful years! I have enjoyed a lifetime of creativity and image making which has afforded me so much.
I look forward to seeing you soon. May your tomorrows always bring you the joy of creativity, meeting the deadline, and most importantly a sense of self-fulfillment. That’s what I have had all these years. In my tomorrows, “Photo Jack” will still have a camera and a vision!
THANK YOU, each and every one of you!!!! It has been a lifetime of joy!
