Powell Jordano

about Powell

Powell Jordano is a tabletop photographer specializing in food, beverage, and product imagery. Whether he’s working with local restaurants, magazines, or global brands, he captures dynamic and inviting yet natural-feeling light within a controlled environment. He earned a BFA in commercial photography from Columbia College in Chicago, began his photographic journey documenting land-use focused on former missile sites around Illinois, and eventually settled into a commercial career with his wife and studio manager. When not photographing something tasty, Powell can be found wandering off the beaten path to explore new places and sample their cuisine.
