Live YouTube Photography Tips and Tutorials.

Joseph Ellis has been a professional wedding and portrait photographer for 17 years and has photographed more than 500 weddings and thousands of portrait sessions. Joe and his wife Stephanie have been working together as a team at Joseph Mark Photography for the last ten years and have had the honor of working all over the world from the cliffs of Positano, Italy to the beaches of Hawaii and of course nearly all the ballrooms, ranches and churches in their hometown of Dallas/Fort Worth.

Joe and Stephanie chose Olympus cameras because they are fast, dependable and flexible in getting them the images they want to create. After more than 100 weddings with the EM1 MKII and Olympus Pro lenses they continue to love all the tools Olympus brings to the table in helping photographers make outstanding work. Over the years they’ve loved paying it forward in the form of mentorships, workshops and critiques whenever they feel they can help another photographer move forward in their career.

As a parent of two amazing kids it would be easy to guess that Joe takes a lot of images of their life as a family. The journey they’ve had as parent photographer over the last 10 years is what lead Joe and Stephanie to a new passion in helping others improve the creation of images and video in their own family life. Joe created www.familyphotolife.com not for pros but for passionate parents who want to better capture the stories of the everyday extraordinary. So many of Joe’s favorite personal photographs come from things like recitals, soccer games, birthday parties and summer vacations. Joe’s hope is that he can teach parents who witness these moments to get beyond just making uninspired snapshots and get to recording powerful and artistic moment driven photographs and videos that bring to life those everyday things that make a family’s history.

Joe has also developed a following on YouTube, with over 4,000 subscribers who have watched Joe share his knowledge on everything from great back-to-school photos to using Live Composite to capture captivating light trails. As a Workshop Partner, Joe will continue teaching through a series of live photography workshops on YouTube.
