joelMy name is Joel Robison and I’m a 30 year old photographer originally from Cranbrook, British Columbia and currently living in Southern England. I’ve actively been involved in the photography community for the past 6 years and consider myself to be a conceptual portrait photographer. I’ve always loved the fantasy world created by the minds of Walt Disney, Dr. Seuss, Jim Henson and many more and I enjoy putting whimsical elements inspired by these role models into my own work. I often try to tell a story within my photographs that allows the viewer to experience an emotion, create their own story, or experience a glimpse into my own ideas and dreams. I believe in sharing knowledge and have over the course of three years taught a series of international workshops to hundreds of students, helping them discover their artistic vision and create work that expresses their individuality.

I got my start in photography due to a project called the 365 project, where I took a self portrait every day for a year. I think that self portraiture is an amazing way to express your emotions, your ideas, dreams and goals in a visual format and I still enjoy the art of creating with myself.
