BIOGRAPHY

JORDAN VANDERPLATE
Born in Lancaster, PA, I grew up in the countryside next to the Susquehanna River and the outdoors were a large part of my youth. On special occasions I got to ride with my grandparents to our family cabin in central Pennsylvania and I remember driving through the mountains listening to classical music on NPR, and those memories and images that come to mind have very largely influenced my style of shooting and editing. I enjoy wide angles and seeing the entire scene from the outside so as to understand the context, as well as then focus on the details inside of that scene.
I began to shoot wedding videos in high-school for friends of my older siblings and began to develop a love of capturing and creating beautiful images. I moved to Kansas City where I currently reside just after graduating high-school and music quickly became my prominent skill and I began to develop my skill as an electric guitar player more, and had the opportunity to make that my full-time occupation. Playing guitar carried me to 16 countries and all over the United States and Canada several times. I've played for several artists including names like Matt Gilman, Cory Asbury, Misty Edwards, William Matthews, Steffany Gretzinger, Jaye Thomas and many others. While traveling I exercised my love of nature and film by capturing adventure that were added on to weekend trips and I continued to build my confidence in shooting and editing until I completely made the switch from music to the videography world in 2017.
I've done work for several artists and ministries and my work has been featured at the Philadelphia Flower Show and promoted by artist Justin Bieber. My specific passion is to capture images and match them with the music that draws out emotion from the viewer to connect with the content, not matter what the subject may be! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about my personal shooting or editing style! I look forward to the opportunity of working with you on your project and thank you for taking the time to visit my site!
