1) As Photographer
I am available to do photography like weddings, birthdays, baptisms, anniversaries, graduations, commercials, movie stills, models, journalistic, etc. Ideally, I prefer that it to be within the LA area and suburbs where I live. But, if you really wanted me to do photography outside of my place, there will be extra fees for transportation, accommodation and food.

    I meant to send a thank you note sooner, so a testimonial I felt would be just as fitting.

He's been so supportive and encouraging to me - as he has been to many other artists. The proof is in the number of testimonials he's received. He's a great guy and a true artist. He sets the bar pretty high but I will always try to meet the challenge.

    Joe makes the most amazing Pro-pictures! I learned from him and have always admired his masterpiece! And yeah, I call him the HDR master because he indeed is the master. ^_^ His works are the most beautiful things you will see here in Flickr. ^_^

    I never met him in person yet but he's a great, great friend and a true inspiration! Now he inspired me to save up for a real good dslr. XD

I stole one of his cameras, I even broke into his house to use his computer while he was at work. But taking the almost same shots with his stolen cameras and running them through his computer, I still haven't made a picture with that Kris Kros magic in it. All I've gotten is a restraining order and court mandated counseling.
    But I feel like I've learned so much!

    Not only has he opened a whole new world...he painted it too! Definately one of, if not the top photographer I have seen."

    His HDR work is a true unique artform which he has developed.

    Joe is more than an inspirational photographer, he is an inspirational person."

Merci Joe, vous êtes étonnant.

His pix are undoubtedly amazingly perfectly grafted in HDR format. It's kinda hard to say anything else about him because I don't know him nor have i seen or met.

    I always find descriptions and titles he gives to his pictures very interesting.

While exploring further, one of the first persons whose work struck me was Kris Kros. Any more, I find that I wait with eagerness at the next image he chooses to share with the world. Please note that I take wondrous pride in the images I create, yet I find myself humbled by the creativity he finds in his images. Thanks so much Kris Kros (Joe)!

    "Flickr has two types of talented photographers - the shooter and the artist. Both produce fine images.

    But on a rare occasion, both types reside inside one individual - and Joe (aka Kris Kros) is one of those unique people who is both a shooter and a brilliant photo artist. In his hands, the camera becomes more than just an image capturing device - it becomes a paintbrush for a very talented guy.

    I feel very fortunate to have met and become friends with Joe through the magic of Flickr and I consider him one of the finest people I've encountered here. His generosity towards others is amazing, and his ability to stay warm and caring while his reputation grows exponentially here is a credit to the man.

    "I first came across Joe's work in January of this year (2006). His "digital" work really intrigued me. His photos that included horses (especially the one on the beach) made me take a "second look" (being a lover of horses). The "tablet" seemed to connect me to him even more. Joe's work has progressed to a point where I looked forward to logging onto Flickr just to see what he has "come up with now".

    His work is never dull, always full of color and life. There are no boundaries for Joe and his creativeness has every indication that his work will continue to progress.

    I've never met him, but I feel as though I've known him forever. He has been an inspiration and constant companion to me through my own progression with Flickr and photography. You'll never be bored with what you see here!
