MEET THE SNAPPER: Jackson captures his hometown in pics

It was a natural path for photographer Jackson Whitney to take photos of the emergency services in action.

“My Dad and Pop are in the RFS and I’ve been involved in the emergency services,” Jackson said.

“I get a buzz out of taking photos at an incident.”

The 18 year old finished school last year and has since dived into his photography business JW Photography.

It is a bold move for the 18 year old Casino man.

He’d like to be a full time photographer and sell photos to individuals and the print media.

“A good photo has good contrast, good framing and quality,” he said.

“It’s a perspective thing, It all relates to the person and their perspective on the world.”

His main driving supporter and inspiration is his mother who helps with pick out different locations.

“She looks at my photos in a different way.”

His Instagram account features the RFS and a swag of landscape shots from the region.

Jackson is ready to “get into video” as another arm to his photography business.

He edits his photos on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
