Jack MacDonough left his position as chief executive officer of Miller Brewing Company in 1999. Since that time, he has had more time for his photography. While he typically shoots landscapes, this year, he was able to capture the Green Bay Packers’ championship win during Super Bowl XLV.
Jack MacDonough left his position as chief executive officer of Miller Brewing Company in 1999. Since that time, he has had more time for his photography. This year, he was able to capture the Green Bay Packers’ championship win during Super Bowl XLV.
MacDonough traditionally shoots landscapes, his work can be seen in corporate settings around the city including We Energies, the Bradley Foundation and GE Medical, he said.
“I went (to the Super Bowl) with one shot in mind,” MacDonough said. “I wanted to capture a huge panorama of the victory ceremony that would show the huge video board above the field; that’s the one shot I was trying to get.”
MacDonough is a member of the Green Bay Packers board of directors, so he admits he has a ‘bit of an edge’ getting tickets.
“I’ve been to other Super Bowl games and I’ve got to tell you that HD video screen really transforms the experience of being there,” he said “It made for an even more terrific game to watch.”
According to MacDonough, the Green Bay Packers will have their own HD video screens installed where the current display screens are before next season.
He shot a series of photos at the event, all of which are available for purchase if people are interested, he said. Most of his photos, including the panorama shot he wanted to get, are shot in high definition and can be enlarged significantly.
“The panorama I shot of the Packer victory ceremony is such high resolution it can be enlarged to 12 feet wide,” he said.
Macdonough has offered the photo to the Green Bay Packers, free of charge, to display in Lambeau Field, he said.
