About Joe

I love working with people.  I like taking the time to get to know the people I work with so we can be on the same page as we develop an image and tell a story.  I am pretty good at getting people to relax during a photo shoot so that we can proceed to getting some great shots.  

I am an ENFP.

I love to cook.  I have a pretty good food memory so recreating a favorite dish is an ongoing experiment.  I cook for around 40 people once a month and am always on the lookout to bring something special to a meal. I love music.  I am a major Beatles fan as well as most classic rock.  I play guitar, bass and sing.  Harmony is especially fun.

When I am shooting pictures I am in my creative element.  My passion for photography, drives what seems like endless energy.   I can shoot either on location or in a studio. I shoot with studio lights reflectors and or natural light.  

I received an honorable mention (2nd place) for one of the photos I submitted at the 2018 Portland Squared Photo contest and a merit award for an image submitted to Oregon Professional Photographers Association.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Pepperdine University. I am a founding member of Columbia Ecovillage, an intentional community in Portland, Oregon.

Contact me and we will have some fun.

Thank you for looking.
