Kordel Fermin is a photographer/videographer from New York City who specializes in making video documentaries, and music videos. Growing up in a vibrant enclave of music and art, he sought to capture those moments for posterity. Over 25 years later, Kordel has established himself as the foremost videographer in Brooklyn. He is now relocated to Canada but will continue to create in New York and Canada.
Kordel’s interest in photography got triggered when he was a 14-year-old kid in East New York, Brooklyn. “I started as a teenager, my dad did photography and I was always into videos,” he said. “Once I noticed you can capture a moment in time and look back at it hearing the audio and it just makes you feel the nostalgia, I was hooked.”

He has worked with artists like Mel C, Tokyo Breeze, Cowbell Yell, Cory Hotline and is currently working on a video project with reggae artist Comf4th. Kordel is no stranger to reggae, he has worked with dancehall artiste Macka Diamond and Busy Signal and Afro B on video projects. “I DP’ed the video (director of photography) with Warrior films out of Jamaica,” he said. “It was a wonderful experience. Busy Signal is so Down to earth, he was an absolute pleasure to work with.”
