"Everyone knows Washington is photogenic but no one knows this better than Jake McGuire. It is McGuire’s sensitivity to his subject that is central....though these monumental landscapes and structures are the same ones we have seen in thousands of other pictures all our lives, they have a different, more personal quality in being grazed by McGuire’s lens and the heightened, sometimes curious, lighting he knows precisely when and how to select for...to us Jake and the District seem inseparable.”

"Lots of fun... a great writer!"  – PBS

Jake McGuire has just released a new book for all those who survived being tormented by nuns in Catholic Schools. "The book is wickedly funny," says McGuire, "as it credits my mother for savings us from the often, 'hellish' nuns who picked us up by the ears, whacked my left hand with a ruler for using my left hand, and frightened us with threats of burning in the everlasting fires of hell."

Award-winning Washington, DC writer and photographer Jake McGuire has just released a new book for all those who survived being tormented by nuns in Catholic schools.

     “The book is wickedly funny,” says McGuire, “as it credits my mother for saving us from the often ‘hellish’ nuns who picked us up by our ears, and frightened us, daily, with being burned in the everlasting fires of hell.”

      “My rebellious mother distrusted politicians, clergy and an a robe–even on Halloween. When needed, ‘the fighting Irish’ in her kept the nuns quivering in the convent when they dared to torment me and my siblings!”

      The low-cost book is available on Amazon ($4.99) for digital downloads. And the print version will be available soon.

    A great holiday gift for all who went to Catholic Schools. For more visit McGuire’s website:   www.dcjakemcguire.com

McGuire on Assignment in Paris

In addition to photographing his home town, McGuire has extensive experience around the world in journalism as a travel photographer, food and wine writer, and restaurant critic.

 

He offers private photography lessons as well as lively culinary tours (or a combination of both) for individuals and small groups to wine producing regions around the world. From an afternoon in the Virginia wine country (just outside Washington, DC) to a week in Napa, Sonoma, Tuscany or Provence, McGuire can guide you or your group on a memorable culinary adventure.
