Jack Howard's Message: Will Novak Djokovic be #1 by the end of the French Open? I for one think so, and hope so.

I've been lucky enough to capture images of some of the greatest modern players on the courts at Flushing Meadows over the past several seasons. I've shot the Williams sisters, Nadal, Federer, and many other great male and female players on court. I've been lucky enough to catch Andre Agassi as a spectator.

Last September, I finally was able to shoot Djokovic in action. He is, by far the most entertaining and intense player I've seen.

He is on fire this year, and is in great position to be #1 in the world after the French Open, break the consecutive win streak, and quite possibly be on track for a true Grand Slam.

Nadal is quoted in this week's SI about how unstoppable Nole is right now. Here's a few shots from an early match at last year's US Open, as Djokovic eyes a #1 ranking, and the French Open Title...

Here's some new (and classic) HDRI shots that will be featured in the 2nd Edition of my book, Practical HDRI: HDR Photography using Photoshop and Other Tools (2nd Edition), now on bookshelves!

We've added close to60 pages to the 2nd edition, updated a ton of information, and built on the strengths of the first edition.

Check it out here:

Get my take on all that's happening in HDRI in general here:


Freelance Photographer, Writer, Editor (words and pictures), Author, Podcaster, Photo Industry Expert, and more. Available for freelance and contract opportunities.


The German translation of my new book, Practical HDRI (isbn 978-1933952321) has recently been released by Rocky Nook's partner company Dpunkt: HDRI in der Praxis (isbn: 978-3-89864-580-5), and a second print run of the English edition is heading off to the printers any day now.

Feedback from the targeted readership group has been very positive, and I'm hoping to write another photo book in the not-too-distant future once things settle down just a touch. And thanks to Tom Sperduto for making the jacket portrait shot for both editions on the fly outside Ellen's Stardust Diner at 50th and Broadway last spring.


Random thoughts on the photo industry, gear, gadgets, techniques, tips, tricks, links, and maybe where I went for lunch delivered in 140 characters or less:


I am a photographer, writer, and editor (words and pictures) based in Central New Jersey. For close to three years I was with Pop Photo, and featured in the magazine, the website, and American Photo. I've got upcoming features in PC Photo Magazine and a couple of other places. I've been published in many major daily newspapers in the New York/New Jersey Metro area including the New York Times, The Star-Ledger, The Asbury Park Press, The Home News Tribune, The Daily Record, The Courier-News, Long Island Newsday, and the Ithaca Journal. I've shot cover stories for trade and special interest magazines. I've done corporate assignments for Fortune 500 companies including AT&T, HSBC, Ing Financial, among others.

I have a well over a decade's worth of professional experience in visual and written communications. I take every job seriously, and pride myself on delivering the highest quality work on every assignment.
