Based in Denver, Colorado, we usually find Joe capturing athletes outdoors. He recently explained a series of indoor shoots which are no less impressive and action-filled than his outdoor work.
“This summer has been so hot, I think I subconsciously needed to do a shoot that reminded me of being a kid, looking for a way to stay cool – an erupting fire hydrant, a neighbor’s lawn sprinkler, a Slip-n-Slide… anything!” says Joe.
“I began imagining a shoot where I could combine my summertime prerogative of keeping cool with my background in high-speed industrial photography, and my current passion for creating sports photography and films.
“Like many photographers, I keep an “inspiration” file going of cool techniques and styles. I soon found an image that was pretty close to what I wanted to achieve: a female athlete hitting a splash with a baseball bat. The effect was just as striking as I had imagined! I started to get really excited about using this technique in my sports photography, and taking it to a new level.
