Denny G. Giacobe, a resident of Tafton, has been clicking his camera shutter for a living 45 years. He has been proud of his work and marked special opportunities before, but never has he had this measure of success: A picture he took, gracing the cover of a major, national magazine.

His photograph of a Czech Army, CZ 808 Bren A2 assault rifle is spread across the face of the October 2017 issue of Gun World.

"It took me 40 years," Giacobe, who is 67, said. He said he works part-time at The Home Depot. A lady who knows him came up with a copy of Gun World, and asked him tho autograph the cover. "I felt like a celebrity," he said.

He said he has had pictures published in magazines before, but they were always on inside pages only.

As stated on Gun World's Facebook page, the publication is one of the oldest and most respect names in firearms journalism, in its 54th year. Gun World is produced by Engaged Media Inc., with headquarters in California.

A free-lance writer working with Athlon Outdoor, a company in Scranton, was writing the story for Gun World and needed pictures. The writer saw an ad Giacobe had posted at Craig's List for Giacobe's photography business, and liked his work.

This summer, the writer, who had the necessary license, brought this gun down to Giacobe's studio in Tafton to have the pictures taken. Giacobe was able to take the quality photographs, making use of his studio lighting, to make the firearm stand out.

"The funny thing is, I don't know anything about guns ," Giacobe said. "I just know how to make them look pretty."

Statue of Liberty project

Giacobe is originally from Jersey City, NJ. He started taking pictures to sell them when he was 16 or 17. He went down to Raceway Park and took photos of the race cars, and came back and sold his 5 x 7's to them.

He studied for a year at the New York Institute of photography and also learned Ansel Adams Zone System. "Ansel was my hero," he said of the renewed western photography.

Giacobe was a free-lance photographer for Playboy magazine at one time. In 1986, he was one of only two official photographers for the project to restore the Statue of Liberty monument. He has done work for many companies and local publications - including The News Eagle.

Giacobe is staff photographer for the Lake Wallenpaupack Yacht Club.

Changing times

At first he only used black and white film, and went over to color. Giacobe said he used to have his own dark room in his house. Switching over to digital, he said, was "a hard sell." Digital technology, however, has made it so much easier. "There's no waste," he said.

Today's proliferation of camera phones has made "picture taking" much easier for the average person, but Giacobe said this trend has hurt professional photography.

"Before a photographer could specialize in one type of photography but now the pros need to be able to do all kinds of work," he reflected. "After 80 years Popular Photography has gone out of business because people are more interested in taking pictures with there phones and don't care about real cameras."

He does a lot of product photos, and portraits, weddings, landscape and real estate pictures. The picture-maker has won a number of photography contests.

His passion

"I love what I do in making pictures not just taking them, the old saying find something you love to do and you will never work a day in your life," he commented. "The knowledge, experience and passion for image making I have developed over the years is drawn upon for every project, commercial or private. Translating ideas into images, solving problems, shooting to briefs and a fierce work ethic have all been the backbone behind my work."

"I like to feel that my work is unique in that I specialize in creating images rather than just taking them. I love lighting and creating my own images rather than simply pushing a button and hoping for the best," he states on his web site. "I have great respect for the art of making pictures."

Some advice

Asked about what he would recommend to a young, aspiring photographer, Giacobe replied, "STOP taking pictures and start making them!! It has nothing to do with what you hold in your hands to take the picture It's what you have in your head!" He also advised asking questions of experienced photographers, and see what they do and how it's done, on You Tube.

He and his bride, Cathy, who look forward to their 39th wedding anniversary on October 28, have been residents at Lake Wallenpaupack for 25 years.

"I believe in making pictures not taking them," Giacobe said of his passion, on his Facebook page.
