August 19, 2008 5:29 pm

Jordan Craig was introduced to photography when a family friend, an accomplished photographer, offered to build a darkroom at his family’s home. His first work was to develop film for his father; painter Philip Craig. After high school, he and a friend (now his wife) moved to Venice, California, where they lived for two years working in film. Jordan attended the Hollywood Film Institute at Paramount Studios in Hollywood and experimented with Super 8 film. In 1997, he moved back to Ottawa, and started working for Dynomight Cartoons where he was the head writer and reference photographer for three seasons of Untalkative Bunny, an internationally broadcast children’s show. In 1998, Jordan helped produce a short film entitled 67 Aluminum Plates with Jan Pinkava, Academy Award Winner for ‘Geri’s Game’ and Nominee for ‘Ratatouille’.

Well known for his landscape work, portraits and still life, Craig has worked on the restoration of the Queen Victoria statue for Parks Canada, as well as photography for the Canadian War Museum and the Parliamentary Library. He has photographed many political figures and dignitaries; his works are represented in many private and corporate collections throughout Canada and abroad.(www.jordancraigphotography.com).
