About Jordan Michael Zuniga:
Growing up with wooden cameras as toys, and with a mother who is an artist and a father who has been a working photographer for more than 40 years, it is no surprise that Jordan today lives in Miami and is surrounded by beauty and creativity.
At age 19 with $700 in cash and a backpack full of ambition, Jordan jumped on a UK-bound plane with the intention of living in Europe, seeing the world and finding out where photography could take him. In Amsterdam, he quickly made friends with a local photographer who showed him what fashion photography looked like. Within a few months he was hooked. He soon began knocking on modeling agency doors and was eventually hired as a test photographer, and the rest is history.
Jordan has worked with many professional entities in the U.S. and abroad, including Fashion TV, Elite Model Management, Next, Ford Models, Front Management, MC2 Model Management, True Religion, ADT, the U.S. Navy, SiTV, Mercedes-Benz, Victoria’s Secret, Warner Bros., Selecta Magazine, Venue Magazine and Casa Casuarina.
