Rising Stars: Meet Mike Jordan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike Jordan.

Hi Mike, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Mike Jordan aka eye of the shooter. I got started out by shadowing my bro Paul *@paulmichaelconte* and from there, I fell in love with the art of photography. At that time, I really didn’t know what my purpose was nor really had a passion for anything the way I do with photography. Really is the first thing in life I’ve stuck with and honestly been really good at. Especially with being self-taught and without any real training if you want to say. Photography has really helped me see life in a totally different way, from the models I’ve worked with to the places I’ve been able to see through my lens. Really where my photography name “Eye of the shooter ” comes from. I just want to show how I see the world and leave my imprint on the world through my art.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
By no means has it been an easy road. At the time of me picking the camera up, I was really in a bad space mentally and just all around in life and not even really knowing it. Still has its ups and downs but I’m very blessed that God has given me this gift to display to the world.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize and am known for street portraits and fine art prints. I’m most proud of my landscape and print work. I feel its how I can express myself the most with photography, has allowed me to take in the beauty of the world around me a lot more. I would say my eye is what sets me apart from others the most. I love how I’ve shot some of my angles because I believe it truly displays “beauty is in the eye of the shooter. Whether it’s an empty road or a model in front of my camera, I embody that quote in my art.

Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
Book wise I’m a huge fan of the alchemist. I believe it best describes this journey I’ve been on with photography. I also enjoy getting inspiration from vogue and ebony magazines. Another huge inspiration is music by far, from house music to rap to r&b.
