You are such a huge inspiration to me, probably one of the many reason why I wanted to keep doing photographer. You have such beautiful images, and you can see in them that you really take your time and effort with every photograph you create. Truly outstanding. I will always be a huge fan of your work. (:

As stereotypical as it is in my Art I used to depend way too much on my mood. Or on the weather. Or on the dark side of the mood. I sometimes used to wake up and just not feel like creating something. Then I would check the updates of my Flickr contacts and see Joel's work and I would feel ashamed for being way to… Read more

As stereotypical as it is in my Art I used to depend way too much on my mood. Or on the weather. Or on the dark side of the mood. I sometimes used to wake up and just not feel like creating something. Then I would check the updates of my Flickr contacts and see Joel's work and I would feel ashamed for being way too lazy. Every single one of Joel's daily uploads is a stimulus to get up and get creative! Not even a single day must be wasted! It blows my mind how he manages to come up with so many creations, at times completely different stylistically, at times with really intricate editing and manipulation, however always whimsical, entertaining and inspiring. Where does he get all the energy, all the creativity? I guess he IS the Boy Wonder after all. Thank you, Joel!

this testimonial is very long over due... Joel is without a doubt one of my favorite artists on flickr. Every photo he posts is inspiring, every single one. They have some of the most creativity I've ever seen and they are all executed so well and are all unique. My favorite part is always looking for little hidden details, because that's really why your work is so cool, there's always something new to discover inside them. I was heartbroken when your latest 365 was completed, sad that I won't see your beautiful photos everyday. I can't wait to see more from you! And also, you deserve every favorite, comment and explored you get. :)

Joel. Really a boy with a wonderful mind. His creativity is always so stunning, and everyday he comes up with something more that outclasses the work he did the previous days. I admire how this mans mind works, he is so creative! If you haven't seen his work, and instead of looking at his stunning art are reading this, you should just stop now and go look at his stream. He inspires me, he makes me wanna do some crazy creative stuff, and it is just amazing for how long I can look at his photos wondering how he did it, but not at least how he came up with the idea to the photo. Keep up your good work, and take good care of your creative mind, it is just amazing! Håvard

His photostream is just that; a stream of consciousness and conscience, creativity and wonder. Each of his efforts transforms real life into a better world, where I want to deposit myself and watch him work. There is no better testimonial than witnessing his masterpieces yourself.

Every single day that you post a new image it's never familiar but always fresh and something new, but always 100% YOU. You have your own style which is phenomenal. You have been a serious inspiration to me, you truly have. I can't even begin to explain how much I look up to what you do, I admire it 100%. Although I'm kind of strapped for time at the moment and my 365 is sort of at a stand still for now, you make me want to put everything off- get up- go out- and do some! I really honestly and truly believe that there is no one more talented on flickr than yourself. Don't ever stop doing what you do, you have been a real inspiration to so many people including myself.. I always look forward to viewing your work!

Joel, I just went through a large amount of your photography and I kept thinking to myself, "my god, this man is absolutely brilliant". I'm serious, you've got to be one of the most amazing artists on here, and basically, I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, even if it is through flickr. Your work isn't the same old thing we see day after day, it's fresh and it's completely you. I always know when it's your work, you've got this touch I've never seen before, this sensitivity to detail and that's what makes it brilliant. You never leave a photo without the perfect touch. I just wanted to let you know how absolutely beautiful you were, as an artist, and a person. :)

There are exactly four things in this world that make me crazy happy: chocolate, yodelling, the world pomplemousse, and Joel. I literally thrive off of his daily photos. I can't go to sleep without stalkerishly staring at his stream for an hour. Yes, it's an addiction, yes I've been interventioned, but you know what? Joel is worth the craziness, because he is a photography supergod. I honestly believe that when he was a baby his mother dipped him into the River Styx. Long Story short, he inspires me. He is my photography idol, and I hope hope hope hope hope that I will be just as good as him one day :)

I can't find a reason to why I haven't yet wrote something in here. I'm so speechless about your work at all times, I'm always in such a conflict of words, and I can't seem to find the right ones for you. You are indeed one of the few people in this community I feel deeply attached to. You were (and are) my truly inspiration which gave me strength to start my own project. I've been following your work much before I even register on Flickr, and it's been such a pleasure to be able to receive such kindness and friendship from you. You changed my perspective on such communities and showed me that friendship can be found in the least expected places. Thank you so much for inspiring me to become much better, not only as a photographer, but as a person. You heart is so beautiful, and your art shows it. I can't help but follow in love with the person you are every single day, because the strength of your energy follows me even when you're on the other side of the world. You are deeply, deeply gifted and I even think that you don't even know how much gifted you truly are. Thank you so much Joel for your kindness, passion and for you heart.

It would be very difficult to do Joel's work justice in a testimonial, especially one written by me. Even a random sampling of his stream will indicate the sort of talent you are dealing with. Joel is not merely a talented photographer but he's an artist, in every sense. He can make things out of paper, clay or whatever other materials he has. He can incorporate them into a photo seamlessly and create magic. I especially love the joyful enthusiasm he portrays in his work. There are very few people on Flickr with as much diverse talent as Joel.
