MEET THE TEAM
I wouldn't be able to do what I do without the the help, support & love of these amazingly talented individuals. Over the past couple of decades we have been there, seen it and are going back for more.
Ines - Photographer & Studio Manager
Ines is not only an incredibly talented photographer, amazing mother and wife but she is also the reason the wheels dont coming flying off at every turn.
Born and raised in Dubrovnik, Croatia she has been an integral part of Jordan Banks Photography since its conception all those years ago and Im pretty sure we wouldn't be where we are now without her.
Ines will more than likely be your first point of contact at the studio. Ines isn't a morning person so if you do call early make sure to check she has had some coffee before you get down to anything to serious with her.
Ben - Filmmaker //DP // Director
Ben & Jordan grew up together and have worked together since day one.
Over the last 20 years Ben has become recognised as one of the mostly highly accomplished and sort after film makers and story tellers in the industry and won numerous awards for his work.
He has been making documentaries, promotional films and music videos for over 20 years. He has created a style all of his own and brings that ‘film look’ to any project he undertakes.
After a huge amount of investment in himself and his craft Ben has the skills, equipment and knowledge to undertake any job.
‘I’ve always wanted to tell stories to the best of my ability so it was natural for me to become a filmmaker, but I couldn’t have become a filmmaker without first being a good storyteller’.
