I'm Jordan Oram - a Director of Photography, most would call me a Visionary Enthusiast. I amplify everyday moments blending culture and authenticity.

I'm all about progress, the process and my purpose.

I enjoy lensing everything from films to commercials. Each project showcases my dedication to visual storytelling.

I capture life's essence, blending bold visuals with daily life's subtleties. My work is a reflection of the world through my lens.

" Cinematography for me is about evoking emotions and creating experiences. I believe in immortalizing moments, making them feel like history repeating itself. "
