Yes, Jackson has a PhD. Not in photography though. While researching Alzheimer’s Disease at the University of Toronto he discovered his passion for photography. After defending his thesis in 2001, he thought he would give taking pictures a try for a couple of years maybe. He started off on his own, then founded Ikonica in 2007. Now, nearly twenty years later, he’s still at it.
In addition to Toronto, Jackson has shot for couples in Vancouver, New York, Los Angeles and Kyoto. He has won numerous awards in wedding and fashion photography with recognition by both clients and industry. His work has appeared in pretty much all the wedding magazines including WedLuxe, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and Weddingbells.
Jackson and his wife, Saxon, have two boys, Atom and Jet. In the summer, when time allows, they go camping and hiking. In the winters, they ski.
