After 3 years of traditional education in film, TV and photography, Joseph has been on the grind as a freelance photographer for the last 6 years. He has experienced all of the ins and outs of the industry, and knows his camera better than the back of his hand.
He says that throughout his career, a higher standard of work has been his driving force, along with obtaining a deeper understanding of photography and its continually changing relationship with the world.
I love the effect that images can have on peoples lives, wether its helping their business or keeping in touch with their social networks. Sometimes photo sessions can have a surprising affect on my clients, and I've even had corporate clients tell me the session was healing, I've had models and musicians tell me that being infant of the camera has helped them find themselves and I've had business owners or freelancers thrilled with how the images have helped their professional lives and bank account.
For myself I love how vibrant, flexible, challenging and exciting the job can be. I could probably write a lot more, so to give myself time to prep for your shoot I'll end it here !
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many types of shoots, I believe giving anything effort and attention can make it special. But getting to know my clients vision, and my clients themselves on a shoot can be fun and rewarding. The moments when you're in the midst of a goal focused creative flow after all of the groundwork is done is my favourite.
