Back in 1970-something, when I was just about 5 years old, I picked up my dad's camera and made my first "real" photograph. From that moment on, I was hooked. A few years later, I had my first SLR, a really nice Nikon. I shot with that camera, along with a couple different 110 and 35mm automatics for many years. Photography courses during summer school kept me busy and fully intrigued with the possibilities of art by camera. By the time I reached high school, I was rarely seen without a camera in hand. I was on the yearbook staff, of course. Hours and hours were spent in the dark room.

 

All of that has translated into something truly wonderful and exciting. Working with other photographers, musicians, special needs children, the military, and families is what makes my heart beat and what fills my soul.

  

I am available for live event coverage: concerts, gatherings, faires, rendezvous, etc. I am also available for portrait sessions on a limited basis: family, children, headshots, artists, Beloved, as well as Dignity/TLC sessions.

Joanie shoots like she lives; with emotion, fire and gusto. She projects it, she inspires it and she captures it. Looking at her work, it is hard to believe that she does it without a "real" camera. Go Joanie Go. Bengt

Joanie-DG has a great eye. Her photography covers all genres from classic portraits, live music to animals and flowers. All are wonderfully shot and presented without post-processing. Her sets of live blues performers are amazing where she catches the character of the musicians and the atmosphere of the performance with great style. Joanie does not get enough recognition on flickr for her great photography, which is a shame. And add to that she is a pleasure to talk to and chat with.
