We shot with Joseph at one of Boston's green spaces called Boston Public Garden. Read below for a little Q&A! 


Tell us the story about when your passion for photography first started?

I graduated from film school at Emerson College, and after some time working on some local video projects, trying to figure out what I was doing as a whole, I was not really having a lot of fun. I ended up buying a Canon T2i, and started taking still photos, just so I would have a hobby and start enjoying being creative again. That turned into me falling in love with photography and starting a business, where I've gotten to work on a lot of different and fulfilling projects and collaborate with a lot of nice and talented people.

What is the story behind your favorite picture? 

This is a recent photo from an ongoing series of black and white Boston street photography. I like it because The Tam is the dive bar that is right across the street from the college I went to. They only take cash and have pennies glued to the tops of the tables. It looked like it was closing for a bit, but it reopened. I spent a good amount of time in that area and I have a fondness for it, particularly since the bar seems to be one of the last places that seems like it was or could have been from the Combat Zone time period of that neighborhood, as it becomes more and more the Theater District. There is a bit of grittiness to it and I enjoy how the people in the photo are interacting with their surroundings.



How was collabing with the Never Seek Approval team?

Working with the Never Seek Approval Team was a very positive experience. It was a fun shoot where I had a lot of opportunities to be creative. Overall, I really like what they are doing do with their brand.

How can someone get in contact with you…
