I'm Joseph Summers, a Maryland-based photographer who shoots custom and unique photography sessions locally and around the world. While most of the work I do is in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC (DMV) region, I like to get out there and explore what the Earth has to offer. Seriously, as a wanderlust who blows with the wind, no destination is too far for me (My last International Photography trip was to Ireland!)
I have grown up and made my home in Charles County Maryland, just southeast of our Nation’s Capital, Washington DC! It’s where I met my lovely wife and where we have settled down to raise our family. I have been blessed with an awesome family and a great career as a Paramedic that I love. As a child I had always loved to take pictures; but it wasn’t until after a trip to Monte Carlo in 2015 that I got my first DSLR Camera and then I truly found my passion and potential for photography. I quickly discovered that great photography is more than just pressing the shutter. Not only does every photograph tell a story, but that an artistically captured moment elicits emotion, memories and draws you into the moment for years to come. With my photography work I have been truly blessed to capture the beauty of God’s creation; a child’s wide-eyed innocent smile, the joy and happiness of a newly wedded couple, the wholeness of a family together and the potential of a young adult as they transition to college and begin their way of life. Photography is an art and the world is a blank canvas waiting to be captured thru the artistic use of light, composition and a beautiful smile!
As you'll see from looking through my portfolio, I dig a lot of different types of portrait photography. From weddings to senior sessions to family sessions and more, I'm always game. I'm also an easy guy to talk to and work with, so definitely reach out at your convenience with any questions.
