Who & Why title

jackbio.jpg (11172 bytes)Welcome! Jack Iddon started as a freelance photographer in 1979 and became a staff photographer for the Standard-Times in New Bedford, MA. in 1986. He became the chief photographer in 1996 at the S-T. Jack won numerous awards from the Associated Press and the New England Associated Press, which included Photographer of the Year. That award is for overall excellence & highest achievement in all classifications of photography. In 2006, after 20 years as a photojournalist for the Standard-Times, Mr. Iddon has come full circle to return to freelancing and his passion for artistic expression through photography.


Since that day back in 1975, when I purchased my first 35mm camera, I have loved the art of still photography. I loved it so much, that in 1985, and with 19 years into another career, I decided to make a change. It turned out to be a wise decision, as now, I really love what I do. Looking back, I could not have made this career move without the advice and support of my family.  Thank you Joyce, Heather and Nicholas. Since my return to freelancing in 2006, I am currently providing photography and web site design and maintenance for the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in Fairhaven, MA.  Through this association, I have been blessed with the opportunity of photographing the congregation's missions in New Mexico, South Texas, Washington DC, Mexico, India, and the Bahamas.

Thank you for visiting my photo gallery!
