Joe is a very talented person, also very generous and kind. I consider myself lucky to count him as a friend, thank you Joe. Make sure to spend some time checking out Joe's amazing works."

"Joe is an unique photographer. Joe is a master of light and shadows in the huge city. Joe capture ordinary life in a brilliant way and the city wins a new life in small moments , cause he is there capturing them .
Depiste joe's talent and Art in b&w and he is a Master on it , this guy is one of the most generous artists and photographer in Flickr.
Imagejoe is a Star in the most brilliant way. He rocks!"
May 17th, 2011
"His stream is a separate world, one that I love to enter every time he posts a new image. With his high contrasts he creates the largest atmospheres, and I have found myself lost in them, rooting for the people in them, and taking part in their scenes and journeys.
I love his work. I love his brand. Image Joe - There is no one like you and thank you for you!!"

"great vision, great light, great photos..."
December 27th, 2009
"Joe is not just a great photographer; he is a force, and, without a doubt, one of the best street photographers I know of. He handle darkness and light with an amazing touch, and each and every one of his shots from Vegas, the land of desperation, fun, and failed dreams, is a real gem. Joe is also an incredibly generous and supportive Flickr friend to so many! Thanks for all the great photos and your kindness!"
November 11th, 2009
We've been friends for some time on Flickr and I am so amazed at how you keep up with my new photos.
Do you have a team or do you do this all on your own. Our photographic vision and style is so so different and yet i admire your work a lot and I am so appreciative of your attention to my own scatterbrained efforts!
i do realize that you are a Pro so your comments are all the more encouraging! Your focus and creativity is amazing. Your style is timeless
I have a strong feeling you started NAFF, NAFTA and PHOTOCLASSIC and Image Gallery
You know, these are the groups I truly enjoy the most, Relaxed, real, unpretentious, sexy, hip and really full of soul!
I am guilty of sometimes not commenting, though. I am a 40 year old finance professional and I sometimes I don't have the time to be a good commenting member.
Again, I really appreciate your visits from all the way across the globe. I really wonder how you keep up with all your contacts so consistently!!! You are a really great contact to have...the best really
Again, much appreciated, Joe! Keep up that great work!
From Portland Oregon, Costa Rica, and the Philippines :)"

"Joe is one of my favourite photographers on flickr. He takes light and converts it into moments."
October 21st, 2009
Jerry Ipsen Photography says:
"I don't know of anyone whose captured the personal side of Las Vegas any better than Joe. From the bright neon lights of the Strip to people down on their luck. Joe has superbly captured the best and worst of these moments in B&W. His talent to capture these deep contrast images continually draws viewers in for a closer study . Sometimes satisfied, sometimes wanting more. There's a story behind each shot and Joe continually strives to bring these stories forward through his wonderful photography. - Jerry Ipsen"
October 13th, 2009
"The thing about Joe is his enthusiasm regarding photography. His images by some may perceived as wrong, or technically incorrect. Fuck that. He knows what he wants to achieve and realises (in my view) that the small details, the things he wants us to see, is far more important then the whole obvious image. A light falling on a shoulder, a tone on a paper, a reflection of the strip on a window, all genius, as it paints a bigger picture, without having to show the whole canvas.
An arty farty testimonial, but I hope that it holds true - I have the same idea - don't take pictures for everyone else, take them for yourself as it makes them far more real. Build it and they will come!!!
And they have."

"Joe is a very kind person...who takes (and makes) wonderful photographs!!i really love and admire his work!!Thank you very much for all your beautiful comments :-)"

noir imp says:
"Joe is a fabulous conjurer of the Vast Murky Light. His images are like none other that I've seen on Flickr (or anywhere, really). There's a brilliant edge and energy to these shots that's both harsh but strangely inviting. On the surface, these images may seem hard or aggressive--and obviously they can indeed be that. But what elevates them for me is that there is also a kind of sublime humanity behind them, and the murky light. When viewing these photos, I feel that Joe is connecting with his subjects--even those he "captures" candidly. There is something there that's magical and that demands your attention. He really has a vision. Oh, and he is a super guy who will make a point of commenting on your photos too!"
June 9th, 2009
"I love Joe... like the Blues or Rock-n-Roll baby...
One of the best B/W street photographers around today. His talent to capture the perfect angle, location, subject and fire the shutter at exactly the right moment give his extraordinary work a cutting edge style. Joe knows Vegas - the one you never see."
May 15th, 2009
"Joe is a true master of B&W. He understands negative space well, and what to show and not to show. I'm always deeply impressed with his work, and also intrigued by his very unique look at Las Vegas - which is unlike anything that any other Vegas photographer seems to be doing."
April 26th, 2009
"Streetphotography is a poshy thing on flickr. 99% of this stuff is quite commutable to me. imagejoe belongs to the rare 1% you better should´nt miss, buddy!
Sending you a phat RESPECT!,
March 23rd, 2009
"Joe is one of my favourite photographers on flickr. He perfectly demonstrates the power it provides us with. He see's his world and brings it to our screens, but unlike an any ol joe, he's photos have a darkness and mystery to them, he hunts in Vegas but his photos are not phony glitz they are pure gold. He can take a mundane scene and through his empathy and human understanding along with a real mastery of composition, he can give that image a depth that is the true aim of street photography!"
March 23rd, 2009
Joel Tjintjelaar says:
"I've met Joe thru one of my dearest contacts who happens to have an eye for great talent: Flood. And what a talent she introduced me to: ImageJoe.
I'm a B&W photographer myself and know some of the secrets of good B&W photos. Joe knows them too and besides that he knows how to shoot great candid or streetshots. His photos are amongst the best B&W streetshots here on Flickr. His eye for light and contrast and for the decisive moment in the spirit of Henry Cartier-Bresson, is remarkable. And then there's also his masterful shadowplay that add to the composition of his photos and his excellent control of B&W conversion techniques and use of tones.
I've never been to Las Vegas, and I only knew Vegas as the city of bright colorful neonlights and gambling. Joe shows us that there is far more in Vegas below this shallow facade of artificial light and materialism: there is depth in emotion, there is real human drama and there is real light. And then there's also Joe who captures this all in a fantastic way. I'm honoured to know you and your great work Joe."

zona di fotographia says:
"I really admire the photography of 'imagejoe' you can find the 'strip' in color everywhere on the net, what you can't find is the 'real Vegas'.
Base on his photos Joe loves and respects 'Vegas' in a way few do.
Joe is the 'real Vegas' and his photography will take to places you've never seen, read, or even dreamed of.

Kamal Zharif says:
"wow!!, you have talent in capturing B&W potrait image."
January 31st, 2009
"A stellar candid photographer, imagejoe's talent shows us the true Las Vegas Strip. His mostly black and white shots can be humourous, exciting or scary. He can capture a moment, a feeling or a face you wouldn't otherwise stop to notice. Technically, I think he is one of the finest monochrome street-shooters I've seen.
I sincerely feel that imagejoe cares about my work and wants me to be the best photographer I can be. No one is faster with an encouraging comment or a tip to help me improve.
Thank you Joe, for being my number one fan!"
