Jordan Carroll is an aspiring young photographer. She currently lives in Manchester, England studying art at college but hopes to move to Leeds to study photography. Her photos are primarly shots on film of her friends or captured moments from happenings in her life.
1) When did you start to think about photography?
I had enjoyed taking photographs for a long time until I seriously thought about it when I was around 15.
2) What does it mean photography for you?
For me, I just enjoy taking photos, capturing moments in my life that I feel are significant and I guess
this is why most of my photos are of my friends.
3) Which kind of photography do you like more?
Personally, I prefer film. I have used (and still do occasionaly) digital but overall I feel the
outcome from taking photographs using film is much more satisfying.
4) When you take a portrait, what is important for you?
I like to try and capture the real them as best I can. I think the fact I only really take portraits
of my friends or people I am close to makes this achievable.
5) Do you think it’s important to follow a school to learn how to shoot?
Not at all, I have only recently been studying photography properly in college. I just sort of went out and took pictures, with only a little bit of knowledge I had looked into myself. I think it’s better to just go out and and do it. Although I am enjoying studying it alot and plan on studying it further.
6) What’s the photo you want to take and you never did?
I get this feeling alot, I can’t really think of anything specific but i’ll be walking around and i’ll
see something i’d like to take a picture of but I just don’t stop to do it. I should probably start doing
7) What’s your photo-mission?
Honestly, I don’t really know. Right now I just plan on studying photography at University and
getting to a point where I am satisfied with my photographs.
