Joseph photographs it all. At various times you will find him working as a photojournalist, wedding photographer, set-photographer on a HGTV reality show, portrait photographer or event photographer. He loves being with and photographing people, and thrives at conferences and events. He also loves the studio work he has done with bands and portraits. He also loves the editorial work he has done with not-for-profits to tell stories of amazing organizations. Basically, Joseph throughly love his job, loves the variety of his job, and thinks that variety makes him uniquely qualified to work with any organization or individual, whatever their photographic needs. 

Joseph graduated from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana with a B.A. in the Program for Liberal Studies in 2001. He also studied at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2003-2004 for his M.S. in photography, and graduated in 2022 with the completion of his final project, a photography book chroniciling World Cup fans in Toronto over four world cups. Joseph is working to get the book published in anticipation of the 2026 FIFA World Cup coming to Toronto. 

In June of 2010, Joseph’s World Cup photography exhibit Waving Flags: Toronto’s World Cup Frenzy received a wide range of local and national media coverage including interviews on CBC radio and television, CTV’s Canada AM and the Toronto Star. In April of 2007 he returned from six months in East Africa where he worked and photographed in the urban slums of Kampala, in the displacement camps of war-torn northern Uganda and at a rehabilitation center in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali.

He is a citizen of both Canada and the United States. Joseph has lived and worked on five continents: North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.

He is not associated with and should not be confused with another photographer with the same name working in New York State.
