Jack Carlson

Jack Olson’s interest in photography began at an early age, back when cameras were just a black box with a lens, a push button and a roll of film tucked inside. Through the years, as cameras became more advanced, he had to change right along with them, buying new cameras, lenses, light meters, tripods and the rest of the gear necessary to keep current. Jack will be talking about today’s modern cameras. According to Jack, today’s digital cameras, whether it’s a DSLR, a point-and-shoot or a cell phone, are very sophisticated tools that can produce photos that are so realistic, it’s as though the final image appears to be more real life than a photograph.

About ten years ago, Jack became a seasonal resident of Apache Junction and right away, fell in love with the Superstition Mountains, and he has been hiking and photographing them ever since. Jack is now a full time resident of Apache Junction and his works adorn the windows and doors of the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce.

Jack is a frequent visitor at Superstition Mountain Museum, taking awesome photos of our many events.
