For nearly three decades, Joe has been immersed in the world of photography. He began his career as a studio photographer in northern Ontario, Canada. Growing up in this remote area afforded him the opportunity to learn his craft while exploring the outdoors, making nature and landscape photograph a perfect fit.
Joe works as a professional photographer out of the Calgary, Alberta region, focusing mainly on wildlife and landscape photography. He spends a lot of his time sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm through teaching, workshops and speaking engagements.
Teaching has become a large part of his photography life. Joe loves the enthusiasm that the students bring to the classroom both indoors and out.
Joe is an award-winning and nationally published photographer that has garnered multiple national accreditations in a variety of disciplines including equine, landscape, nature, wildlife and more. Joe has also garnered the designation of Master Photographer (MPN) in Nature Photography with MPIO, Master Photographers International.
