You can call me Joey.

Born and raised in rural, southern Wisconsin, I left the casual pace of home for something a little faster; Chicago. It was there that I received my Bachelors Degree in Digital Photography and began my path to mastering the craft. I've since made my way back to the general Madison area to bring a modern style of portraiture to my home state. Go Big Red.

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
— Ansel Adams
