Jordan is a Portland, Oregon based photographer working with a wide arrange of clients in the event, landscape and food industry. Being self taught, Jordan sees photography as an open canvas, and blends the rules of photography and his own personal style. He has a passion for taking photo,s highlighting the best qualities of the subjects he shoots because the photograph is not just a picture, but a story.
Meeting people who are passionate about the event or subject I am about to shoot. You can feel the energy and drive behind them, and it is easy to feed off of. This makes the shoot so much more fun because it makes me want to show that same passion in their photos.
I have done event photos for fundraisers, non-profit events, dinner series, corporate parties, to cider awards shows. Everyone of these clients have different stories to tell. I always discuss a shot list with my client, ensuring they get those key moments captured.
I always feel a sense of pride when my photos are used in magazine and online articles. However it is even better when people tell me how a photo of mine somehow made an impact on them.
I bought my first DSLR to take photos of my niece for the family.
