Tell me a little bit about yourself.

I'm an Apple product fanatic. I love being active - running, golf, water skiing, basketball and snowboarding are my favorite. As much as I try to eat healthy, I can never pass up a batch of good buffalo wings. I read to become smarter but I'd rather dig out an old Goosebumps paperback. (Night of the Living Dummy was my favorite) I miss playing NBA Jam, especially Tournament Edition. I love my family and beautiful wife Leela more than anything. Our orange tabby Mumford really is the coolest cat in the universe.

I'm a passionate creative, currently exploring the world through photography and design. I'm obsessed with sushi, long summer runs and always enjoy a cold IPA. My camera never leaves my side and design never leaves my mind.

When did you start your venture in photography?

I started this incredible journey during high school. It became apparent to me that my life long passion is to create and tell stories. Throughout my architectural education in college and graduate school, photography blossomed into a true passion of mine. I've worked in various capacities as a studio manager, lead photographer, associate photographer and editor. In 2010 I started Joe Krummel Photography + Design and haven't looked back. I'm truly blessed to do what I love.

Can you describe your style?

I believe style and aesthetics are fluid terms. My images have to be germane to each of my clients. For those reasons, my work is constantly evolving. Generally speaking, my portfolio leans towards being modern-photo-journalistic in style. My architectural background informs how I shoot and I frequently find myself in fast paced, urban environments searching for clean lines and compelling textures.

What do you do for fun?

When I'm not shooting, I can be found spending time with my best friend and beautiful wife Leela, enjoying quality time with family, playing a round of barefoot golf, enjoying late night bonfires at the cabin, going on long summer runs, traveling the world or cooking up new foods.
