Jill Porter has been a professional photographer working in the Orlando area for over 20 years. Her love for photography began when a high school friend suggested that she take a photography class in her senior year. As they say, it was love at first sight. Her photography teacher literally had to drag her out of the darkroom everyday after school. After catching her teacher's eye because of her enthusiasm and already unique style, he asked her to be an assistant teacher at a local art school after she graduated.
Next she was accepted into the School of Visual Arts in New York City where she majored in Photography and Art History. Upon graduating from SVA she assisted several New York photographers until moving to Orlando, Florida where she resides today.
After moving to Orlando, Jill headed into a career as a Fashion Photographer and worked with local modeling agencies including The Christenson Group and John Casablanca among others. Her business then expanded to include wedding, portrait, commercial, advertising and corporate photography.
Jill's shot list includes such names as Steven Forbes, Phil Jackson, Newt Gingritch, Orlando City Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orlando City Commissioners Patty Sheehan and Betty Wyman, Orlando basketball star Dwight Howard, Coca-Cola, Disney Event Group and countless others.
