Jordan Hammond
I'm Jordan, a 25-year-old freelance contemporary travel photographer and storyteller from the UK. After living and working as a teacher in South-West China for a year, I developed a passion for photography which has led me to all corners of the earth; from the mountains of Peru to the rivers of Varanasi in India and everything in between. I use colour and light brings a fresh new perspective to the world of travel photography, and as a result, I've been lucky enough to work with some of the biggest travel brands out there. Through documenting the people and places I encounter on my travels to some of the most remote regions of the world, I have built an engaged community on social media, and strive to encourage people to explore more for themselves.
