Awake Portrait Photography focuses on personality environmental exploration over traditional studio photography. I primarily work with artists, musicians, writers, and small business owners to create portraits that are both genuine and slightly surreal at the same time.

Cityscape Details is an extension of my fine-art photography image series. From individual buildings on city streets to cityscapes as seen from above, Cityscape Details represents collections of architectural photography and personal explorations.

  • Multimedia Services & Video Production (2/6/2017)

“Jordan was very easygoing and helpful, as he created a website that worked perfectly for the needs of my dance studio. I am impressed with his ability to listen to what his clients want and make it happen for them.

He also has provided the videography services for our Annual Spring Recital, the past 3 years. He is pleasant to work alongside and very professional.  Year after year, he creates beautiful Recital DVDs for our dancers to purchase, at affordable prices. My clients and I are very happy with his services.”

“I’ve hired Jordan for numerous projects over the years for photo shoots, videography and graphic design. He’s quick yet patient, and efficient, and works well independently or when collaborating with others. Jordan’s creative thought process is boundless. In short, hire this guy.”

“I really had the grooviest time with you, Jordan. You made me feel comfortable and made sure I was really a part of every aspect of the shoot — not just a model. You let me bring my kooky ideas to the table and worked with them very well. I cannot wait to work with you again! Thanks for being the coolest, you have mad talent.”

  • Modeling Photoshoot (9/19/2012)

“Jordan and I went to Ferndale to take pictures. We really did not have much to work with dealing with props but Jordan had a vision for everything. He could see art in a tire, which is pretty impressive. I enjoyed doing the modeling for Jordan‰Ûªs shoot while he made it very comfortable to act on any picture. Even if it had to do with food. Thank you, Jordan!”

“Finding photographers like this who are talented with the serious technical knowhow to back it up is incredible. So many people snap photos and think nothing of it, but Jordan Ewert is an artist. I’ve worked with him on several occasions and I always stand back in awe of the work he produces. Click and be impressed.”
