    FINDJORDY, narrated by FeliSpeaks

    FINDJORDY

    Born and raised in Tallaght, FINDJORDY is a 22 year old mixed media freelance artist specialising in photography, videography, web design & graphic design

    Mainly self-taught through the internet — learning from YouTube videos and online forums - he specialises in physical photo manipulation and mixing various forms of media to communicate ideas.

    He is the first artist in his family, and a huge advocate for working with what you have and making things happen with the equipment you have - something he learned the hard way with where he grew up and his background.

    He started off by taking pictures of friends and gigs on his €15 point and shoot from a charity shop and is now signed on NotAnotherIntl’s artist development board — mainly focusing on fashion and commercial work.
