I’m Joe Velez, a photographer who values every assignment as an adventure.
My initial interest in photography began as a child in my father's darkroom. My memory of that time adds to my feeling for the full experience of the art. Yes, there’s the play of light and arrangement of compositions - but there is also the sound of the shutter, the feel of the camera in-hand and the scent of the developing chemicals (with film photography). My twenty-plus years as an artist has trained me to capture important moments in the best light. I am always happy to use the skills I've learned to provide clients with the highest quality images.
The conventional wisdom is that a photographer needs to specialize in one particular genre. That may happen one day but as it is now, my love for image-making is wide and diverse.
