Commercial photographer and mentor Joseph Victor Stefanchick (aka JVS) has been around the block in the world of photography. From his early years growing up in New Jersey shooting skateboarding, to his many years working as a freelance photojournalist for the Washington Post, he's tried a bit of it all and isn't done experimenting yet. Whether he was shooting sports, world politics, weddings, or food, Joseph always tried to keep a clean consistent look and embrace the new world around him while listening to what those that would become his mentors had to say. It was this positive attitude and willingness to learn that led him to work with a large list of editorial and commercial clients. Throughout all the incarnations of his career, he has managed to never fall out of love with photography and has now devoted a lot of his time to helping others develop their own skills through his company Personal Photo Coach. In the last ten years, he's had the opportunity to teach seminars all over the world and work with organization like WPPI. Today we talk about how he got turned on to photography at an early age, the inspiration that skateboarding can have on living a creative lifestyle, trying to keep a consistent look while being inundated with other people's styles, and what has helped him stay busy and focused after many years of professional photography. Joseph has a great outlook on the business of photography in today's day and age and helps put a positive spin on what some might see as negative aspects of the current trends.
