Joe Edelman is an award winning advertising and editorial photographer, author, educator and model mentor.
His primary target – beautiful people!
My career has spanned three decades, from my start as a newspaper photojournalist to my work today photographing all types of people for commercial clients such as magazines, colleges, corporations and advertising agencies.
I have received both state and national awards for fashion photography as well as photojournalism in the categories of News, Feature and Sports photography.
I am best known for my photographs of beautiful women.
My work has been published in magazines like Maxim, Cosmopolitan, Get Fit and Shape to name but a few. I have been called upon to complete assignments for both the New York Times and The Los Angeles Times and I have serviced commercial advertising clients from all over the United States.
In addition to my role as photographer, I have been nationally recognized as an innovator in shaping models portfolios and careers.
Simply put I advise serious models (both new and experienced) about how to market themselves.
I am often used as a source for television stories as well as newspaper and magazine articles on the subject.
