About Joe Azure

Joe Azure’s passion for photography took root later in life. Over the past eight years, Joe has been dedicated to practicing and honing his unique skills with a camera, and in the digital darkroom. He loves living in San Francisco, but finds inspiration when he is able to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. Having grown up in the lush rainforests of Southeast Alaska, it is no wonder that it is through these escapes that Joe finds a great deal of his inspiration and relaxation.

Joe excels in landscape, nature, and event photography, but has a great deal of experience in many areas of the craft including architecture, long exposure, abstract, panoramas, and nighttime images.

In addition to the many photography trips Joe takes each year, he has recently started learning how to print his own images. He finds the printing process very fulfilling and learns a lot about many things through the experience. “There really is something different about seeing a ‘hard copy’ of your work, as opposed to on the computer screen.”

When not out taking pictures, Joe works as a software engineer in downtown San Francisco.
