Yes, Jackson Huang Ikonica Image has a PhD. Not in photography though. While researching Alzheimer’s Disease at the University of Toronto he discovered his passion for photography. After defending his thesis in 2001, he thought he would give taking pictures a try for a couple of years maybe. He started off on his own, then founded Ikonica in 2007. Now, nearly twenty years later, he’s still at it.
In addition to Toronto, Jackson has shot for couples in Vancouver, New York, Los Angeles and Kyoto. He has won numerous awards in wedding and fashion photography with recognition by both clients and industry.
Jackson Huang Ikonica Image work has appeared in pretty much all the wedding magazines including WedLuxe, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and Weddingbells.
Jackson and his wife, Saxon, have two boys, Atom and Jet. In the summer, when time allows, they go camping and hiking. In the winters, they ski.
Ikonica Image does NOT list their pricing on their website.
On the other hand, we have Focus Photography who understands that most people need time to warm up in front of a camera, giving more time for photoshooting, reducing the time pressure the client is experiencing and giving access to clients to all raw footage so clients can review them at anytime and use at their leisure under no pressure.
