That's me at a Thorsten Overgaard photography workshop in New York City. I can't quite remember what this guy was saying to me, but it obviously cracked me up. I'm so glad my new friend and classmate Lars was there to photograph the moment.

Howdy. My name is Joe and I'm a people photographer in Austin, Texas.
Your story matters.

Portrait photography is my passion. People frequently look at my portraits and say that I "capture people's spirit." That's about the biggest compliment I could ever receive.

Below you'll find some of the styles that I photograph, along with budgets. Please contact me if I can answer any questions.

Professional Portrait Photography (Headshots)

For business branding, actors, models, social media (ie: Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter business pages), blogs, websites, advertising, professional organizations, testimonials, career transitions.

I have several “looks” in my professional portrait "bag of tricks" from which you can choose. One of my favorites is the “cinematic headshot”. To me, it is a great mix of professionalism and contemporary art. Another look is more of a Rembrandt style of dark, moody light and shadow. You may also like an "environmental portrait" that captures a little more of you in a setting.  Have a look at some examples here.

PRICE: $200-$650 (depending on scope, location, and number of people being photographed)

INCLUDES:

  • Initial "no-rush" phone or in-person consultation. 
  • Two final, professionally retouched, high-resolution digital images archived in Dropbox that you can access anytime.
  • Additional variations of your photos available for purchase. 
  • License for you to use images on your website, social media, advertising (everywhere except for re-sale)
  • Hair and makeup available for an additional fee.

Couples and Family Photography

For capturing candid memories, engagements, holiday cards, framing. 

Our couples and family photography can either be the "candid, unposed" style or in a more posed formal, family portrait style. Either way, we will capture that beautiful spirit inside you and your loved ones. Choose a location, from one of your favorite Austin to a place where you practice your hobby. Then, we'll go out there and have fun together!

For family portraits, we typically include a photo of mom and dad, a photo of the kids together, and then a photo of the whole family together.

I guarantee we'll have a fun time and I'll also shoot some real-life unposed moments with all of you goofing around.
