About this website

The categories on this website are, for the most part, unfinished. I’ve mapped out categories that will continue to expand and grow as more pictures are taken over time. All images on this site contain copyright information with the year presented on each image so I can reflect on my progress over time. I’ve tried my best to filter images into the correct categories and this too is something that will continue to evolve.

Jordan Ewert Photography represents my personal and professional photography services. I’m located in Dearborn, Michigan and work with clients surrounding the greater Detroit/Metro area.
