Rising Stars: Meet Jordan Fisher

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Fisher.

Hi Jordan, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
In middle school, I started making YouTube videos unboxing products, game reviews, and how-tos. I enjoyed the technological aspect and the filming process. Throughout high school, I watched other Youtubers and began to consider my style. I was thinking about tech gadgets that I enjoyed using, and then I would write a script and figure out lighting, camera angles, and set design. I also played varsity baseball during high school and was on the varsity swim team. I wanted to combine my passions, so I started considering sports broadcasting and production. I started college at Loyola University, MD, and joined the Loyola Athletics production team through a work-study program. Once COVID-19 hit, things drastically changed. I transferred to Towson University and majored in Electronic Media and Film in the Communications Department. I continued to work for Loyola Athletics and networked with many seasoned and talented individuals who helped me develop more opportunities. In May 2022, I graduated from Towson University magna cum laude and obtained a contract with the Baltimore Orioles. I also enjoy some freelance camera work and have many private clients. My passions also include music production and photography.

Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
As an introverted 22-year-old, it was tough to network in this competitive field. It was challenging to get noticed with little experience. This field requires sharp focus and physical coordination. In addition, it is important to listen closely, communicate effectively and ask questions.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Currently, I work as a camera operator with Loyola Athletics, Baltimore Orioles, NBC Sports Washington, Monumental Sports, and many other production companies. I am proud that I have come a long way in only 4 months since graduation. It is still surreal to be a part of an industry with so many talented crew members who I can learn from. I feel like I am different from others because of my creativity and vision.

What was your favorite childhood memory?
I remember going to Camden Yards to watch the Orioles; always been interested in camera operators, and now I am one of them. This still blows my mind!
