Who Am I?
My name is Jordan Murray. Born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, brought up in Gateshead. I shoot to document but I aim to do it with style (of course.) I don't really know what kind of photographer I am but I like to be out on the street, watching the world go by, documenting everyday life.
So, why have I brought you here?
Well first off I love Instagram (www.instagram.com/jordanmurray96) as a platform; for sharing work, gaining inspiration and meeting like-minded people by the boat load. It's amazing really.
But... There's always a But
I feel like I have a lot more to bring to the table and need a space to do so. In 'my space' I hope to share my projects, offer and gain some guidance, get to know the street photography community and hopefully share as much as possible with you all.
First and foremost I want to create a space where I can journal my work and share my projects. I'm sure that may interest some of you however I want to offer you a bit more in weight:
-Share more from behind the scenes such as workflows, editing technique, how I shoot etc
-Share and discuss the work of others hopefully offering inspiration
-Keep up to date with street photography related news
-Get to know others in the street photography community through chats, interviews (podcasts!?!?), spotlights, and takeovers.
-Offer and gain guidance in what I can through tutorials on shooting in the street, equipment, programs (e.g. lightroom), and whatever else.
I'll be honest I'm pretty new to all this so go easy on me :)
Leave a comment to let me know what you think, if you have any ideas, or even just to say hello. I'll be chuffed if I can even get 10 people looking at this blog.
