Joe inherited an obsession with the moving image in high school from his cinephile father, and went on to study art and film theory at Vassar College, then expanded his expertise through film technology courses at NYU. Over the past decade Joe developed extensive technical knowledge of the industry by working in a vast array of sub-sectors, including documentary, commercial and fashion shoots, reality television, feature films, corporate films and music videos.
Most recently, Joe photographed Booker’s Place: A Mississippi Story, which screened at The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and received rave reviews from The New York Times and Variety Magazine. Joe has also shot content for HBO and an award-winning music video for MTVU as well as videos for Meagan Hilti, Nicole Atkins and Semi-Precious Weapons. Work for IBM, UPS, Kate Spade, Jimmy Choo, Nikon, Puma, Aleve, NASCAR, Nordstrom and Citizens Bank are also part of his résumé.
Joe was born and raised in New York City. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter, and frequently can be found tinkering with his cameras and bicycles, or climbing rocks when he’s not off on a shoot.
