Jordan Strauss is a Los Angeles-based photographer. He grew up in Simsbury, CT and attended the University of Redlands where he created his own major, "Composition of the Human Eye", which was a mix of sociology, psychology, English, creative writing, and photography. A nationally-ranked tennis player, Jordan taught tennis for a few years before starting "Jordan Strauss Photography" which started as a small business on Venice Beach, and eventually led Jordan to signing as a stock photographer with Wireimage. He worked as a photo editor at Wireimage for six years before picking up a camera again at SXSW where he fell in love with photography all over again. Five years later, Jordan specializes in creative celebrity and client photography and still can't believe he gets paid to take photos.
