Oscar Jordan has been named winner of the Believe in What You’re Building Photo Trip Giveaway sponsored by Identity Digital, the folks who promote the adoption of the .photography TLD (Top Level Domain) name dedicated to photographers who believe in the brand they’re building.
As the giveaway winner, Oscar had the choice between the photogenic destinations of New York, Iceland, Jamaica and London. Oscar will soon be on his way on an exciting trip to historic and supremely photogenic London, a photographic destination that has long been in his dreams. As a matter of fact, he had planned a birthday trip there in December of this year before his plans fell through.
In addition to the curated trip to London, Oscar receives a one-year free subscription to Zenfolio’s ProSuite plan, the professional resource optimized to help photographers build a stronger professional presence.
Oscar Jordan earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from New World School of the Arts and the University of Florida. He most often uses a Sony Alpha a7RII and Sony G 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom in his work. He created a long-term body of work, NEXT STOP, which is a series of photos compiled during his daily commute to and from school. What began as a single picture led to a complete series and book of more than 75 compelling images.
Oscar was born in New York and now lives in Miami. Although Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras are his go-to choice, he often shoots film (perhaps as much as 20% on a per-job basis) and chooses that media sometimes to “free myself from digital.”
Relatively new to the game himself, Oscar offers this savvy advice to those making the same career choice: “Know your craft, have faith and believe in yourself. You have a huge advantage if you have a good support group. And always be prepared—you never know when you might get an assignment.”
Thus begins the fulfillment of a dream Oscar has long held. When asked how he sees his future unfolding, he replied, “Over the long term I hope to be well-traveled. My camera is allowing me to see things I’ve never seen. I also have a strong desire to help others grow along with me. I want to enjoy enough success that I can live in this world of photography every minute of every day.”
While in London, Oscar will build his portfolio while being mentored by some of the world’s foremost creatives. Oscar will be tutored by professional photographers Ian Harper and Henry Nathan, the creative forces behind CP Collectives. Oscar will learn tips and tricks directly from these experienced professionals while shooting alongside them. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience that will help Oscar boost his career.
CP Collectives is known worldwide for their authentic images and ability to shape powerful and compelling campaigns for brands around the globe. Some of CP Collectives clients are Audi, Hilton Hotels, Virgin Atlantic and Park Hyatt, to name but a few.

And they can help Oscar enhance his creative talents in incomparable ways via hands-on, personal instruction during this photo trek.
