Jordan Robins is a 24-year old award winning ocean wildlife and ocean art photographer based in Jervis Bay, on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
Living on the coast his whole life he has developed a love and passion for the marine environment, which started from a young age, with endless days spent immersed in the ocean whether it be surfing, snorkelling, diving or fishing.
With a background in science having a completed a Bachelor of Science degree, Jordan has developed a true understanding of the marine environment and its inhabitants, which has given him a greater awareness and appreciation of the environment in which he is taking photos in.
Jordan aims to create unique underwater images, which express his love for the ocean, as he sees it though the lens of his camera. His favourite style of photo are “over unders” which is a style of underwater photography, where you can see above and below the water, all in the one photograph. This style of photo combines the familiar terrestrial world with the alien marine world.
Jordan’s favourite time to shoot is in the early morning or late afternoon when the light is soft and the colours in the sky are vibrant. You will find him in the water around Jervis Bay nearly every morning and afternoon with his camera in hand.
Jordan’s unique work has been recognised throughout Australia and worldwide having his work published by Australian Geographic Magazine and having his work published online by National Geographic.
Jordan also had the privilege of being awarded Australian Photography Magazines 2017 Photographer of the year, with a series of his “over under” underwater images winning him the overall title.
Jordan hopes that his photography inspires others and helps to raise awareness about the marine environment and how fragile it is, so it is there for future generations to enjoy it as much as he does.
