We’d like to welcome our first male photographer to the blog!!! Joe St. Pierre recently emailed us with a link to some of his images, and we were mesmerized.
As you’ll see, his work is full of life, and has a wonderfully candid feel.
Get to know Joe:
Documenting my life has always been something I felt I had to do. Even when I was younger, I always tried to hold onto memories and places in my head for as long as I could. I think it comes down to my fear of forgetting. If I’m not documenting my experiences and the people who I share them with, I fear those feelings I had in that moment will disappear. I am addicted to the emotions that come along with photography more than the act of composing and I hope that is what my work portrays. I want people to feel something when you look at my photographs or have a glimpse into someone’s personality. It may be old fashion but I live my life around the saying ‘a picture says a thousand words’.
