A Frame Forward logoA Frame Forward Photography

Hi! I’m Jackson, the Vegan man behind the camera at A Frame Forward Photography. I’m an award-winning wedding, landscape, and lifestyle photographer serving the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as destinations all around the world. I’m an adventurous spirit blending photojournalism and fine art with a light-hearted and free-flowing style. My clients appreciate my alternative, organic approach, and vibrant imagery. I was quite humbled by this client review: “This man is not a photographer, he’s a POET with his camera!”

Music, nature, travel, organic gardening, and all things creative stir my soul. I’m into big ideas (think TED talks) and I take an eco-friendly approach in life, both personally and professionally. I’m a big believer in the wisdom of Gandhi’s message, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I strive to model my business, art, and life around that wonderful idea.

I truly care about creating amazing images and experiences for my clients. I’m patient, a great listener, and get along with just about everyone. While easy going, I’m also highly aware, on-point, and professional. I value honesty, integrity, a good sense of humor, and old-fashioned hard work. I don’t just show up to do another job, I show up to do something I really love.

A Well Fed WorldA Well-Fed World

A Well-Fed World is a Washington, DC-based hunger relief and animal protection organization chipping away at two of the world’s most immense, unnecessary and unconscionable forms of suffering…the suffering of people hungry from lack of food, and the suffering of animals used and abused for food.

 We do this by connecting the hunger-meat issues and by partnering with groups to:

  • distribute vegan food to people in need
  • support innovative food and farming projects
  • strengthen farm animal care and rescue efforts
  • develop original research and target outreach
  • sponsor pro-vegan and animal advocacy campaigns
