Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA) Donation

Posted on: January 14th, 2016 by Joe No Comments

I’ve always struggled with how to present myself via a portfolio and this last fall I received a phone call from Architect Karen Curtiss about donating some photos for a DIFFA fundraiser. She presented the topic of “Seeing Red”, all images with red somewhere on the image. While it does not seem too intriguing and ultimately a very simple way of presenting a collection of pics, I set out through my catalog of images to find provocative red images and came away with this collection of photo, I have to say I was pretty happy with the bunch and excited to report the three she chose (“Downtown Commute”, “Chaz” and “Traffic”)all sold. Enjoy

Marin Motion

Posted on: January 14th, 2016 by Joe No Comments

I’ve always been fascinated by the motion of our daily lives, so I passed along the idea to Marin Magazine as a feature photo essay about the motion of our daily commutes and routines. It’s a ongoing photo essay that will be finished next year, but I wanted to pass along a few of the photos I’ve already been working on.  Check them out below.

Port of Everett-Photography

Posted on: October 6th, 2014 by Joe No Comments


This past summer I had the pleasure of assisting the Schell Design Group (see more of their work here) to help document their work on a large project with the Port of Everett, in Washington State. The Schell Design Group designed the location of signage, the Port’s wayfinding (designing a system of navigation), historical placards, interactive displays and organized the production and the installation of the signage. Enjoy a few of the pics from the project below.







330 Banks St. Bernal Heights-Architectural Photography

Posted on: February 12th, 2014 by Joe No Comments



Every once in a while I come across a truly inspiring space, a selection of materials, and amazing integration of colors and textures. Designed by Architect Karen Curtiss at Red Dot Studio, 330 Banks in Bernal Heights was just that, a blend of exposed wood ceiling, metal framing and railings and tall open spaces with a lot of natural light filling it. Take a look at the photos and see it for yourself. Thanks.  Photography commissioned by OHP, whom also provided post-production.


Alaska 2013-Denali & The Kenai

Posted on: February 10th, 2014 by Joe No Comments

My younger brother Sam try’s his luck at fishing for Silver Salmon (Coho) on a shallow bar on the Kenai River.

For our annual trip I take with my brothers and father, we headed north to my brother Jakes neck of the wood, good ole Alaska for some camping and fishing.
