JOE IS AN INSPIRATION!!!! I contacted Joe randomly, after seeing his great work with other models he has taken pictures of. I was looking to do a shoot, and I didn't know how or where to start, but I knew that reaching out to photographers on facebook would be the best place to start. It wasn't long before Joe contacted me back, he was interested in shooting with me and I finally had someone to take pictures to help me with my portfolio. Before I met him, I was kind of nervous because I didn't know him all too well, so I asked to have a friend in the shoot, who he also knew, and he kindfully said yes to letting her shoot with me. Joe made me and my friend feel very comfortable at the shoot, literally all of the other shoots I've had with other photographers are awkward and you don't really have a say in things! It's not like that with Joe though, he literally is there to make sure everything goes the way you want it to, but puts in thoughts to things he knows will help with the photo! Later, as I got to know him, he became a very close friend! I invited him to my graduation party, and he asked if he could shoot the event. I was amazed at the fact that he was so willing to do it, especially since it was free. Yet, we still gave him a tip, because we knew that his photos would turn out great from the party! And of coarse, they did!!! All of my family members and friends loved the pictures he took, and they got a lot of likes on facebook. He then asked to do another shoot with me before I went off to college, because he knows that modeling is a big passion of mine! He is the most kindhearted, determined, successful, helpful, funny, and the list goes on for the kinda guy he is! Of coarse the photos came out AMAZING AGAIN!!! I am so thankful to of met Joe, he is truly an inspiration and definitely one of a kind! Thank you for giving me a chance, and I am thankful for everything you have done! I truly/strongly recommend Joe!
