Originally from Yass, Australia, Jack Grayson photographs stunning people, places, and things for a living. Currently based in London, Jack is chasing his passion as a photographer whilst experiencing other worldly adventures. Having worked with Jack a few years ago (before he became famously and fabulously sought after) I have become obsessed with his work and attitude towards life. So here is a snapshot into the life of Mr. Grayson. Enjoy
How did you get started in photography?
I was studying architecture but realised I loved photography a lot more, so I dropped out and started assisting, where I assisted Max Doyle for 2 years.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Pretty much everywhere haha, types of light, certain stories, research papers. I’m interested in everything.
Any memorable travel stories?
My favourite recent travel memory was lying on the coast of Italy with my girlfriend, watching the sun go down with a bottle of wine in a village with no cars, heaven
What do you consider the funnest part of your job?
Getting to explore a million different things and call it work.
How does living in London affect the work you create?
I love London because no matter what your idea is there are going to be other people interested in making it happen.
If you could choose one artist/band to listen to for the rest of your life who would it be?
It would probably be between Real Estate and Twerps.
If you could meet one person dead or alive who would it be?
Marc Newson does some pretty great work, Pierre Soulages too, I watched an interview once where he was saying when he works on a canvas for a while and decides he doesn’t like it, he burns it, then he goes to sleep and starts again. Or Cindy Sherman, sorry that wasn’t really one person haha.
Favourite food –
In love with orecchiette + broccoli at the moment
Favourite drink –
Fond of a negroni at the bar
Finally, what can we look forward to seeing from you in 2015?
I’ve got some exciting projects coming up with some really exciting people, so hopefully lots of beautiful work!
