Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography chose the theme Shadows for the month of March and we had an amazing response. Out of all of the Facebook and Instragram images Kathy chose our banner image submitted by Jordan Voigt Photography. I connected with Jordan to learn a little bit more about her.
Tell us a bit about yourself? and Are you a hobbyist or a pro?
Hi, I’m Jordan! I am a hobbyist photographer who appreciates all things in the creative industry. Born and raised in South Georgia, married to my high school sweetheart. We have two beautiful little girls and expecting a baby boy this summer. As long as I can remember I have looked at things differently and always had a camera in my hand. I enjoy documenting the beauty in the everyday.
Tell us a bit about your photography gear. What is the lens do you not have but you desire to have the most?
Currently in my camera bag I have a Canon 6D, Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 and Canon 50mm 1.4 lens. I am hoping to add the Canon 15mm fisheye lens to by bag soon!
How did your journey to be a photographer happen?
My journey as a photographer began very early when I was a child, even when all I had was a disposable camera! I have always taken pictures and documented.
Who inspires you?
Oh where do I begin? I get inspiration from everywhere! There are so many incredible creatives out there that blow my mind everyday! A lot of my inspiration comes from my family and capturing our story.
What advice would you share to the aspirants in this field?
I would say never give up and just keep shooting. Being a creative has MANY highs and lows. You will question yourself at times and go through ruts, but the highs make it all worth it. Everyone is on a different journey and never compare yours to someone else.
One thing that you have learnt as a photographer over the years?
Sometimes you need to put the camera down and just enjoy the moment. You can get so wrapped up in trying to get the perfect shot and miss what is really happening!
If you are interested in seeing more of Jordan’s work, I would encourage you to check out Jordan’s facebook page. You will love it.
