Joe is an award-winning photographer and international humanitarian filmmaker who has worked in more than seventy-five nations of the world. His work normally takes him to places where people are at their worst — in the aftermath of major natural disasters; surviving famine or drought; and suffering intense injustice.
His still photographs have been published in National Geographic Traveler, Outside, American Photo, World and Professional Photographer among others. His video work has won international film festivals, the NATAS Emmy Award, the George Foster Peabody Award (commonly referred to as the Pulitzer Prize for Television) and others.
He is a big proponent of using and mastering the equipment you have before spending more money to upgrade… even if that means you’re just using a smartphone camera. In Tanzania, he’ll take us through his process of gaining clients who send him around the world. And then from there, how he makes the most money on each of his trips by cultivating even more assignments from magazines and newspapers while he’s already on the ground in a certain spot.
Joe has also agreed to sit with each person individually and help you define your photography style. He’ll look through all your images and help you pick your best ones for review. It’s an important part of learning to edit your images for sale.
