Meet my good buddy, Joe Elario. We've been friends for a lot of years, going back to the late 80's when he first came by the Hasselblad booth at the Photo East show (now PPE). We've hung out together at various conventions; watched his son, JP, who many of you have met at WPPI, grow into a great photographer and essentially shared a lot of laughs and meals together.
Every summer for the last six years or so the marketing department at Saratoga has contacted Joe for images from the races. They're stunning and Joe's helping me make a point. Just because Joe's specialty is wedding photography doesn't mean he doesn't have other interests. He applies the same outstanding technique he's used on everything he's photographed since he started in this business. He never compromises on quality and that's become part of his reputation and brand.
Whether it's a wedding or a day at the races, you can't create images that tug at people's heartstrings if your own heart isn't in it! Obviously, Joe's heart is in every click of the shutter!
Check out Joe and JP's work by visiting their site. You won't be disappointed.
