Today, The Clarion-Ledger featured JFP photographer Jaro Vacek and John "Staxx" Tierre in a story about Staxx's company Blockwear distributing in the Czech Republic with Jaro's help. We consider Staxx a member of the family, too, having featuring his clothes several times in JFP shoots. And, last October, Charlie Braxton wrote in the JFP about Staxx, and other local hip-hop designers who are distributing nationally and internationally last October. We also featured Staff as a young businessman to watch in April.
I recently worked with Jaro. He shot the photos for the new Mississippi College Accelerated Degree Program advertising campaign. As an amateur model, I don't have much experience with photographers, however, Jaro was professional, energetic and comforting. I wish him the best of luck in all he does for I know he will suceed in everything he does. ~Kellye Smith, spokesperson, Mississippi College Accelerating Degree Program
