A bit of history..

Jack started his career under the name 'Bystander Images' which encompassed his connection with being a photographer and feeling like a bystander, and hoped to one day have his own gallery and name it The House Of Bystander which would allow him to work in several creative disciplines such as artwork, art framing, graphic design and art commissions. In 2010 Jack opened his gallery on Beech Road in Chorlton, South Manchester and gave it the full House of Bystander name. In 2018 the name was shortened to the more logo friendly H.O.B Studio.
