MY MISSION: To help photographers develop a solid understanding of the “How’s and Why’s” behind making consistently great photographs. – – Joe Edelman
I am an award-winning advertising and editorial photographer, author, educator and YES – that crazy PHOTO Joe Edelman on YouTube!
I take great pride in sharing my knowledge via my popular YouTube Channel: Photo Joe Edelman – recognized by YouTube as one of the fastest rising channels of 2016.
