“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” ― Dorothea Lange
"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it, and you will know the key to photography.” – George Eastman
Joe loves shooting with available light, from dappled light filtering through the trees in nature photography, to soft afternoon window light for portraiture. His seasonal photos capture the subtle differences in light from season to season.
