He was recently presented with his second consecutive Fujifilm Masterpiece Award for photographic excellence in electronic imaging for his 360 degree panoramas. His interactive spherical panoramas for these awards can be experienced online for “Tribute In Light” and for “National Archives”. Jook’s experience spans 25 years as a commercial photographer with a background in photo-illustration and digital imaging.

He photographs his panoramic landscapes with a panoramic narrative that senses moments of life and through QuickTime VR, shares that intimacy with his audience.
