As a photo artist Jesse pursues his passion for photographing unique domestic and international landscapes. The PhotoArtistry Division of JB Enterprises focuses on capturing the unique beauty found in the great outdoors. Jesse has photographed the centuries old Sphinx and pyramids in Egypt, the snowy caps of the Rocky Mountains and the grandeur of the Grand Canyon. He has photographed the wilds of Africa's Masai Mara including a lion commanding his pride, dancing pink flamingos in the Ngorongoro Caldera, and snapped away as a cheetah chased and captured a Thompson gazelle then called her babies to feast on the remains.

Closer to home, he has captured the scenic wonders of kayakers challenging the rapids on the Potomac River in the summer and the autumnal foliage in the fall. His Nikon D70 has captured soft clouds of cherry blossoms around the tidal basin and the floral beauty of water lilies at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in Washington, DC.

In a trek across the US he attempted to capture Spring as it moved north in 2009. This year Spring was a little late and he passed it by somewhere in Missouri. However the trip provided him the first extended opportunity to try out his then new Nikon D300 camera.

The photo shown above was taken during the course of a 21 day tour of Peru. Stops included the capital city of Lima, interior cities Arequippa, Cusco, Puno and a taxi tour of the Sacred Valley. Highlight of the trip was the beautiful morning spent at the Inca city of Machu Picchu which has been identified as one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

Through his lenses, he illustrates for us the sand formations of Egyptian and American deserts, the torrents of water flowing over Victoria and Niagara Falls and the sculpted granite of Arizona's Sedona Red Rock canyons. He photographed the rivers, flatlands and decaying infrastructure of the United States on an east to west coast train ride followed by the beauty of the Canadian Rockies on his west to east coast return train ride. He captured the swans and early blossoms of Holland's Keukenhof Gardens, the canals and bridges of Amsterdam and the temples carved in rock by Egyptians three thousand years before Christ walked this earth.

Jesse's interest in photography started while he was in Army basic training at Fort Pickett, VA. He carried a small Beacon II camera under his field jacket, surreptitiously taking pictures of the shared misery of his comrades. His interest continued when he acquired his first Olympus 35mm camera that he used to take slide photographs of the seldom seen California deserts in bloom.

A Systems Engineer fortunate enough to work in scenic locales around the world, he took advantage of opportunities to create photographic records of equipment that he designed and tested on remote atols in the South Pacific, the Hawaiian Islands, Exuma Sound in the Bahamas, the Black Forests of Germany, and Lake Pend O'reille, Idaho. An assignment at the British Naval shipyard at Portland, England enabled him to photograph Roman Fortifications built during the first century.

Jesse is particularly passionate in his pursuit of sunsets and sunrises and has photographed images of the sunrise at 40 thousand feet over Amsterdam, rising behind the acacia trees on the Masai Mara plains of Kenya and over the edges of the Ngorongoro Caldera. He has captured the sun as it dips below the Pacific Ocean in Hawaii and the moon as it rises over the Nile River. Recent photo-treks have taken him to the Grand Tetons and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

He now has a Nikon D600 full frame camera and is looking for his next great photo.
