Born in New York City he now resides in Miami Beach with his Akita Bo.
Jo's young athletic career ended abruptly with injury. In 1983 and after a lot of soul searching he took to learning the camera going on to follow in the family's creative footsteps.
Jo finds it very interesting that his lessons on the playing field have been very useful as he applies them to his new career .
“ Quick decisions, deductive reasoning, handling
pressure, finding the right angle, and leadership
have all come in very handy during my shoots.
Having 3 seconds to make a decision under heavy
pressure is no easy task. I find those lessons to play out very often in my photography.
My images are a testament to life that is constantly
happening all around me. Photography at its very
best is completely unpredictable. You have to anticipate what will happen and where it will
happen, it will make you as honest as an athlete.
I like my photography to be clean, pure and of real moments ”.
