MEET JOE

Hi! My name is Joe and I'm a Canadian photographer and graphic designer based in Kitchener, Ontario.

My photographic work frequently centres around architecture and urban areas. Often using strong lines, shadows, reflections, symmetry, and patterns, I attempt to give the viewer a different perspective on places and things that are often overlooked and not always seen. While photographing my subjects I make every effort to not over-shoot things; too many photographs can complicate things and compromise the work in progress. I am a firm believer that less is more. 

The inspiration for my work can come from many sources; a modern building; a vast open field; even a grey and textured sky ready to unleash a deluge. David Bradford, Balthazar Korab, and Ezra Stoller are all photographers that are hugely influential to me. 

As a designer I love a well-executed project. From the initial search for ideas, to the sketches, to the proofs, to the finished piece. I keep an eye on typographic details, image cropping, and balancing the important content with the also-important negative space. I like solid colours, grid patterns, and keeping designs strong, simple, and straight-forward.
