Australian Photographer and Cinematographer Jordan Shields
Born in the South West of Western Australia, Jordan now lives in Sydney and is a freelance photographer and DOP. Jordan found a love of making images, both moving and still during his time working as an IT Manager. That hobby became a career after working as unit stills on a feature film.
In the decade since Jordan left the world of corporate IT, Jordan’s work has been featured in and on the cover of magazines and newspapers, and has grown more to feature moving pictures. With a great knowledge of technology, Jordan is a very handy person to have on set in any capacity.
His clients include newspapers, magazines, corporations, arts organisations and musicians.
Jordan’s photographs have featured worldwide in publications such as The Australian, DRUM! magazine USA, The Sunday Times (UK and Australia), The Daily Telegraph, The West Australian Newspaper, Triple J Magazine, The Wire Magazine, Drum Media, Xpress Magazine, as well as working for the international press corps during CHOGM.
From photographing HRH Queen Elizabeth II, to taking portraits of Ian Paice from Deep Purple, to photographing from helicopters, his subjects are as varied as his clients.
Whether it’s editorial news around Sydney, or drone operation in the Australian outback, Jordan brings a decade of camera experience.
Jordan was awarded the Kiss My Camera Grand Prize in 2011 by the WA Music Industry.
