Originally from Allentown, PA, Michael Joseph has traveled throughout the eastern U.S., photographing people and their pets. Over 30 years,16 states and more than 35,000 portrait sittings later, almost every breed of dog and cat have had their chance in front of MJ’s camera. In fact, if you could get all the dogs, cats, birds and horses that he’s photographed over the years, together at one time, you could easily fill each seat of any major football stadium!
He has received his Master of Photography and Craftsman degrees from PPA, the Florida Photographer of the Year from FPP, Highest Case Score and the North Florida Photographer of the Year. Some additional distinctions include, three-time Florida Top Ten List, Kodak Gallery Award recipient, and the FDPE, FED degrees from Florida Professional Photographers.
