I am a destination Family Photographer based in the Tampa Bay Florida area who was born and raised in the area. As I grew up around photography with my mom being a photo freak who had all the cool toys for taking photos on all of our vacations and my dad who was also heavy into photography, I fell in love with photography also. I developed a love for the pure beauty of the images I captured. "It is so cool to be able to capture a moment in time that cannot be replaced and here I am holding it in my hands." ~ Joe
Unfortunately life takes over and photography was pushed to the side. I have since married a beautiful woman I get to call my wife (Sonja) who is also my assistant. She helped me realize what I was missing all these years which was photography. "My inner soul, my relaxation, my passion" ~ Joe. So I started playing around with photography again as a hobby. After a few years and with my wifes help, I transformed my photography from a hobby to a career that I wouldn't trade for the world. Because of this I can earnestly say I feel privileged to have a job that hardly feels like “work”, and I feel even more lucky to be that chosen someone to capture the most important and exhilarating moments in someone’s life. After all, an image is a moment in time that is captured and can never be replaced.
Today, I specialize in portraiture which consists of families, couples, and individual photography. I have a creative eye and a unique talent of capturing the essence of my subjects while using unique styles to create extraordinary images and memorable experiences. I also has the ability to quickly work with people, a strong design sense and my images, whether black and white or color, tell stories to the viewer.
Besides portraiture, I also offer Real Estate photography services and Fine Art Nature Photography.
