After moving to Chicago in 2007, Joe Houston’s girlfriend put a camera in his hands, and like his late father, Joe realized that photography was much more than a hobby.
Even though he began his career in photography as an adult, Joe dove right in, starting with his love of classic cars. Soon he started shooting live action and realized that this is where his passion is and strengths really lie.
A few short years of picking up a camera, Joe found himself shooting local and worldwide bands/musicians such as Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, YES, Paul McCartney, Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai, Jackson Browne to name a few; popular individuals & celebrities including Sophia Loren, Ralphie May, Andrew Dice Clay, Tom Ricketts, Kerry Wood; major political figures and even received clearance to multiple Presidents of the United States, the President of Ecuador; Rafael Correa and many other world leaders.
Joe has always done graphic design and built websites, but now he can also include his own personal signature, in the form of a creative photo.
