About Josef Samuel

PHOTOGRAPHER, WEB DESIGNER & WORLD EXPLORER

Hi I’m Joe, nice to meet you! I’m originally from Peru, South America and I love to take photos and spend time with people. I began photographing weddings right after graduating from college and have had the privilege to travel around the world photographing people and places. I have some interesting stories to tell!

Photography is definitely a major passion and I would say I thrive under pressure. I love photographing weddings because throughout the day, there’s tears, laughs, hugs and capturing that makes me happy :)

Besides weddings, I enjoy taking portraits. Studio portraits are fun as well as on location or even themed photoshoots. I’ve worked with professional and non-professional models and people who just wanted to build their social media brand. These shoots are fun because of how unlimited the creative possibilities are. From taking trips to interesting locations for

post-apocalyptic shoots to underwater shoots to get that flowy hair or even using my fog machine and lasers, the Instagram portraits are a fun way to spend an afternoon.

When I’m not taking photos, I’m usually traveling! I’ve been very blessed to have been able to travel to many countries around the world but the best part is that I have friends in many of these places so there’s always an excuse to go back and visit. Below I have a small photo gallery of some of the places I’ve visited and some stories although there’s much more on my hard drives waiting to be uploaded!

I also like to build and develop websites like this one. I love to play guitar and am working on developing an 8-week course for beginners! More on that soon. I’m also slowly learning Russian as well trying to learn how to cook new things. It’s a work in progress!

TRAVEL PHOTOS & INTERESTING STORIES

I’ve had the privilege of taking several trips through Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America and even Australia and New Zealand. This is a preview of photos and stories from interesting places from around the world where in many cases important historical events occurred. From the human sacrificing sites of Inca temples to Nazi concentration camps, I will be adding more photos and stories to my collection in time.

Work with Charities & Non-Profits

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT & GIVING BACK

Over the years I’ve been blessed to work with some amazing charities and non-profits. I think sometimes having the right photo can have a big impact. I enjoy volunteering at animal shelters and doing portraits of dogs, cats, and other animals that need a home.

One day I hope to have a big lawn where I can have a bunch of rescued animals. I’ve also worked with Hope Ministries, United Way, Right to Life of Michiana, World Partners and several others helping out with photography or videography.
