WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
"I worked with Joseph this past summer to develop a series of brand photos highlighting my personal style for my image consulting business (Clothing Speaks First) in Rochester, NY. Anyone can buy a nice camera, but you cannot buy an eye for knowing what looks good. Joseph has that eye. I am not an experienced model, but through his direction we were able to produce amazing photos that not only stood well on their own, but illustrated a story that perfectly complemented my personal style and business image. I also would recommend giving him some creative license with the editing, because while I was traditionally doing my own edits, I was very pleased with the edits he provided. A very worthwhile investment! If you want product photos out of context, use whomever you like. But if you want to tell a story to your audience, give Joseph a call."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WHAT IS A STORY?
As an entrepreneur, you have many stories to tell your audience about the person behind the brand. One might be that you’re a work from home lady boss, or guy boss, in which we might take a set of images of you going about your daily process in your work space. Another story might be of you spending quality time with your family playing your favorite games. There’s so many options! Either way, it’s my job to capture it in a way that gives your client insight to the authentic person behind the brand.
Q: DO YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE OF ATLANTA?
Yes! I LOVE to travel. I will go anywhere in the world for you if you cover travel expenses. Ask about my destination ‘wish list’ and I may just discount those expenses.
Q: WHAT’S A COMMERCIAL LICENSE?
Personal brand photography is a little different than traditional portrait photography. It’s a blend of commercial and traditional. Legally, in order to use your images in marketing materials, you need a commercial license. However, as we retain the copyright, the commercial license does NOT allow you to sell your images as stock photography or in any other way. Also, just incase you're wondering, commercial use means your images will NOT have annoying watermarks on them & you do NOT have to credit me when you use them, though shout-outs are always appreciated, & returned. You can even edit it the image to suit your brand image or I can do so if you entrust me to.
Q: I FEEL AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA & HAVE NO CLUE ON HOW TO POSE. HOW WILL THESE PHOTOS TURN OUT WELL?
I get it, I really do! Believe it or not, I am not a fan of being in front of the camera either. Have no fear… with my laidback, fun-loving personality and 8+ years of working with wedding clients, I will put you at ease with natural pose coaching. I may even show you the back of my camera so you can see just how well you are… Killing it! I can’t tell you how many times I have done this for an anxious bride, immediately putting her at ease. And if it helps, we can turn up your favorite tunes!
