I’m Joe Hamilton and originally hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada - otherwise known as "Winterpeg". Luckily, I moved to San Diego with my family in 1987, but occasionally I do miss the distinct four weather seasons. My passion for photography began in high school well before digital cameras made life and workflow easier. But learning black and white imagery, using a darkroom and developing my own film truly allowed me to appreciate the art. From that experience, the finished final prints that I created made all that hard work worth the effort.

About six years ago, I decided to take that passion and turn it into a full-time career. I gave up the corporate life to pursue what I absolutely love to do. In doing so, I gained a spectrum of photography expertise including weddings, portraits, action sports, maternity, still life, landscape, real estate and more. You’ll find my ability to interpret an image, creatively enhance its style and manipulate it into art, a genuine must for your photographic needs. Ultimately, I do more than “point and shoot.” I design a story through the camera, utilize quality time with clients and provide a rewarding product.

Thanks to my family, friends and colleagues, I am living that dream and loving it.
