Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Rushing.
Jordan, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
“Finger-Paint Prodigy” are the words that a friend used to describe me. I kind of loved it. I’m a 31 year old Southern boy from Chickamauga, Georgia. I’m been living in the California for the past 12 years though. I work Entertainment at Disneyland. On my days off or whenever I have free time I’m doing photography. It’s what I love the most. I’ve been taking pictures since I could remember – always going with my Mom to the grocery store and making her buy me disposable cameras. Then to Walmart to get them developed. I took photography in high school. Went to College for a year were I studied art, but then I dropped out and moved to California.
Has it been a smooth road?
Photography has never been a struggle for me. It’s always came very naturally.
What has been the primary challenge you’ve faced?
Money, time, and being an adult. Seems like all my time and money goes to being an adult.
What would you tell someone who is just starting out?
Do what you do best and have fun doing it. Not everyone will like what you do, but there will be people that get you completely.
