I have years of experience shooting a variety of subjects. I’ve never limited myself to one type or genre of photography. I love all aspects of the art and been fortunate enough to create a very diverse portfolio. It took me some time to find my niche and create a name for myself in the industry. Concert photography has paved my path to success and become my area of expertise.
Music has been a huge part of my life since childhood. I have fond memories of seeing my father play the drums and singing songs with him starting at the early age of six. After graduation, I started to freelance in Philadelphia, PA before moving back to Baltimore, MD. Moving to a new city and not knowing anyone in the business or how to market myself was a challenge. I exposed myself into the mainstream art scene to get my brand into the forefront. I came up with a unique logo to make my work recognizable. A year later that logo, a simple tree with my name, “Jordan August” became the most sought after trade mark of every local band.
When I started my career path concert photography was a way to combine two of my passions, taking photos and music. It was the perfect balance of work and play. That being said It took a little bit of time to realize that I could make a a career out of it. There was very little competition in Baltimore leaving all doors open for me. What I loved was sitting right in front of me for the taking. Up until this moment of realization I was just a guy enjoying my favorite band and wanting to capture it with my camera.
I have now been given the ability expand my media and creative outlets in ways I never thought was possible. My clientele ranges all over the country. Almost a decade later, 500+ concerts, 250+ bands and countless hours of editing all my hard work finally paid off. Jordan August Photography is officially a house hold name in fine art performance photography.
