Club Photographer

Jordan Cummings

Along with Jordan being an active member of the All Stars committee, member of coaching staff and also playing with the LLR Men’s team, Jordan provides stunning custom photography and streaming services for the senior teams as part of his volunteering to the club.

Jordan’s photography has documented the teams progression over the years from the Senior Men’s first season back in the league in 2016 to Cup finals and on to present day. He has covered the Ladies LLR return to the senior basketball in 2021 after a 7 year absence. Jordan shot his first game back in 2014 and has built up a library of images over the years which is a huge benefit to the club and forms part of the club story.

The streaming service was added in recent years with the assistance of his son, Ryan, and the onset of Facebook Live. This has enhanced the clubs offering to our fans, home and away, that unable to attend the games in person. The livestreams were of huge benefit during Covid restrictions as numbers were limited in the gym on game nights. This is streamed through Switch Live and added a layer of professionalism with live scores and sponsor opportunities.
