We had the good fortune of connecting with Jordan Rock and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jordan, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I LOVED taking photos for a hobby and looking back on them and just smiling. I found myself asking friends more and more if I could take photos of them and next thing you know I decided that I would be better off starting a business and making money doing what I love to do!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Every piece of light that hits your eye brings in the art of the world. Each time you open your eyes, you are looking at a portrait that mother nature has painted. My job is to capture those special portraits so they can be cherished for years to come. I have worked many years to come up with my own editing style and not just being another photographer. With any profession it takes time to get to where you want to be and I am sure that I will be working to get to be where I want to be for many years! But I am determined to become a well known photographer and be very successful in the family and wedding scene!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take my best friend on a trip to the mountains to go camping. I would take them up by lake terreyall to go fishing and show them the beavers that live around the spill way of the river. We would eat steak and fish dinners. we would drink water and at night have a recap with some wine and relaxing by the fire.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am a self taught photographer and for that I can only attribute my success to my supportive team that I have behind me! My mom has always taught me to chase my dreams and that you are the only one in charge of your success, so make the best go at it. My husband has always been very supportive of my dreams and allowing me the financial freedom to follow them! I am a part of a lot of photography groups and take many classes all the time, but I feel that being a photographer is very important to have your own style and what you can bring to the table! Those skills come from life skills and just getting out there any trying new techniques.
