May AOPC Meeting – Kirk Jordan
May 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
Title: Arkansas Heritage Natural Areas: A Hidden Resource.
Many Photographers are familiar with the glories of the Arkansas State Park System (with 52 parks holding some 54,400 acres of resource) Far fewer know that Arkansas boasts 79 Natural Areas with an even greater land print.
By contrast to State Parks (which highlight the visitor) Natural Areas highlight the protection of the resource. Some are easy to find and navigate. Others, beyond easy reach. All represent a rich resource for photographic explorers.
Kirk Jordan started his photographic career as a photographer for the Southwest Times of Fort Smith Arkansas, in 1991. He served four years before being fired. (Miserable then, so good later.) He followed that stint with four years of wedding and portrait photography in Fort Smith. (I had the time of my life, but it was hard on the wife and marriage.) Jordan took a job with Arkansas Business Publications in 2001, then – a year later, secured a position as Photographer to the Governor, serving 5 years with Governor Huckabee, 8 years with Governor Beebe, and 1 Year with Governor Hutchinson…It has been his privilege to serve the last 7 years as the senior photographer with Arkansas Parks, Heritage, and Tourism, to the delight of his soul.
