This portfolio is comprised of images captured from mid-2013 to early 2020, featuring select works from a vast collection of creative portraits, headshots, promotional images, and events. All of these images are the result of collaboration with venues, makeup artists, hair & wig stylists, costume designers, performance artists, celebrities, and models to achieve the finished result. The majority of this portfolio has been developed along the East coast of Australia, specifically Brisbane, with a few exceptions. 

Joel’s professional photography portfolio began to develop after his involvement with the Brisbane burlesque community, during his final year of University in 2013. Previously a painter, Joel purchased his first camera in 2009, and after completing University, photography took centre stage from 2014 onwards. Photography developed into a full-time career in 2017, alongside producing burlesque, drag, and variety events around Australia.
