5 outstanding glamour photographers of 2013
I call him Big Joe D! He doesn’t know that, but I do. His work has improved the most in the last year over anyone on this list. He probably shot five times the volume of anyone on this list during 2013 as well. When you live in Florida, where beautiful beaches attract amateur and pro models alike, your game is going to improve. If you’re committed to improving, like Joe anyway.
“The best advice I can give [to new photographers] is to be very passionate about it and keep feeding your motivation.” He says. “Get out there and shoot, then go home and study then evaluate your work.” It’s obvious that Joe is living up to his personal credo because his work continues to improve.
