Founded in 2008 by Jack Mancini, Mancini Photos combines his experience, skill for photography, and passion for equestrian sport. Based in Wellington, Florida, Mancini Photos offers full coverage of the Winter Equestrian Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, as well as numerous other competitive, social, and promotional events connected with the equestrian industry.
Jack’s artistic influences and passion for imagery laid the groundwork for a career as a professional photographer. From long line of artists, Jack’s family connections to the arts gave rise to a love of the visual image. His grandmother, an accomplished painter who studied in France, gave him his first camera at the age of 5, and from there his ongoing relationship with photography grew. He is a lifelong equestrian, working with famous horseman Ray Hunt, starting and training cutting horses, and as the owner of a 450-acre ranch in Texas. With a strong background in technology developed over his professional career and a passion for horses, Jack set out as a photographer in 2008, shooting at the Palm Beach Film Festival and Wellington horse shows, building his business to include some of the top names in the equestrian world. Jack’s prestige as a photographer also led to him being named one of Sigma Photo North America’s 7 “Sigma Pro” sponsored photographers.
As the official photographer for Equestrian Sport Productions, producers of the Winter Equestrian Festival and Global Dressage Festival, Jack’s skill in capturing exceptional equestrian moments has been honed over weeks of competition and equestrian events. Mancini Photos is also the official author and publisher of the Official FTI Winter Equestrian Festival Yearbook and The Wellington Equestrian, chronicling the prestigious winter competition circuit and the equestrians, disciplines, and lifestyle of Wellington.
Mancini Photos offers comprehensive photography packages, and has covered everything from breed inspections to fundraising galas.
