About Me

Siddhartha Lansiquot

I was born in Castries, St. Lucia and later moved to Bergenfield, NJ when I was around 11 years old. I’ve always had a love for the music of all genres which led to a brief internship with a local record company in New York. I moved to North Texas when I was 19 and found music again becoming part owner with a now-defunct record studio called Black Star Studios. It was there that led to my passion for photography, I was a jack of all trades around the studio.

I produced music, I engineered and I handled any type of computer issues. Our company decided to venture into videography and shooting album covers and we had no photographer or videographer. I researched the latest cameras and my partners and I somehow decided I would be in charge of photography and the rest is history from there. As passion for photography grew from there. I also met my wife in Texas and my vision for Xavier Jordan Photography began over seven years ago.

It’s named after two of my sons Xavier and Jordan. We’re a family oriented business and we’re constantly learning and growing. My family plays a huge role within my company and provide me with constant support to keep the business flowing. We are a small company but we anticipate many big moves happening in our near future, we’re always learning and continuously growing to better and enhance our business.
