Jackson learned the basics from local photography legend and instructor, William Van Allen, at COCC. ‘Spirit Returns’ offers a stunning retrospective that mirrors Jackson’s complete immersion into the natural world, and his creative self.
Born in 1951, Bruce Jackson grew up in farm country near Salem, Oregon. A passion for skiing brought him to his present home of Bend, Oregon, in 1969. While working with ski cinematographer Warren Miller in the winter of 1976, Bruce became inspired by the creative process of photography. In the years that followed, Jackson’s unique artistic style evolved as his awe and respect for Nature deepened.
Beginning in 1984 Jackson created and marketed award winning fine art posters, including his famous Summit and Pine Marten prints of Mt.Bachelor. In 1992, Bruce was awarded GRAND PRIZE in the SIERRA CLUB Photography Competition. Today, Bruce’s fine art images grace numerous corporate offices, organizations and private homes throughout North America. A partial list of Organizations and Corporations that have purchased Jackson’s photographs includes: Alaska Airlines, Ritz-Carlton, Audubon, Morgan Stanley, Dean Witter, The Sierra Club, Mt. Bachelor Inc., Hallmark, Coldwater Creek and Sunset.
