Furthermore, i picked up my first camera at the age of 15 (2013) in high school (new town high). My journey to enhance careers began at a young age. It was up to me to capture everyone in their element. Turned out to be an outlet for me to communicate happiness through a®t. As i would, photograph the students and teachers, i noticed that everyone would smile when they were my focus. The smiles i received made me excited, it gave me an extra push to keep moving forward and continue to express my happiness. My first camera was a t2i canon rebel my grandmother purchased. Heavy invested into learning more of the camera i came to realize that my camera can record video, from there my life changed. I began to curate & grow. The rest is history. Welcome to the journey!

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
A Guy from West Baltimore, who would have ever known a flower could grow from concrete. Stevie Jordan, 26 traveling photographer & film director has been making his name from his camera. “Shot By Stevie J ” is what they call him. His love for photography & film grew in a matter of months and became his passion. He has been on the ride non-stop for the past 6 years perfecting his craft working with major names all across the country. Stevie is special because he dedicates every second of his day to help improve his work. He has worked with some of Baltimore’s most prominent athletes: Lorenzo “TRUCK” Simpson & Gervonta “TANK” Davis. In fact, Stevie has been featured in up to 4 magazines in his short career. Stevie has made a name taking over the music industry working with up-and-coming artists ‘Staydown Trevv’ & a few other big names.
Coming from Baltimore, it’s not very easy to make a name due to the crab in the barrel mentality. Yet, the people of Baltimore have grown to love Stevie
Stevie is not your average 26 year old. He’s a boss, a leader, an innovator of his time. He has a mission to change the narrative of Baltimore by helping people of all levels reach their full potential. Just last year he visited hospitals throughout the state of Maryland to educate patients with disabilities to learn how to use a camera. Now he is in the process of creating a non-profit that will give opportunities to millions of people to excel in the creative world. He plans to allow the camera to lead people down a path to success.
Now that Stevie is coming up with huge plans for the culture. He is introducing his FIRST EVER “Eyetagraphy class” that will educate people on working a camera, shooting a camera, and editing pictures. This class will eventually be a continuation course so this can possibly be an opportunity that schools begin to inherit alongside Stevie.
