Roxanne Jo

Hi, I’m Roxanne. Telling your story is my passion.

I’ve honed my craft for a couple decades, and clients can be confident in both my mastery of technical skills and my ability to connect with my subjects on a personal level. It’s that mix of the technical details and the human element that makes photography so fulfilling.

One of the keys to excellent photography is preparation. I make sure we’re on the same page about the story we’re telling. When you work with me, you can expect meticulous planning long before the actual shoot. Together we build a plan through detailed communication, and we continue that collaboration through every step of the shoot. It’s a fun and inventive process, and I enjoy watching our shared vision become a tangible reality.

Compassion and empathy have as much a place on a set as lights and cameras. I know that being the subject of a photo shoot can be a vulnerable feeling, and I’m sensitive to that vulnerability. I take the time to earn my subjects’ trust, explaining what I’m doing every step of the way. And I’m not afraid to poke a little fun at myself if it makes you feel more at ease.

I’m passionate about community, fitness, nutrition, and justice — social, economic, and environmental. I especially love combining my passion for photography with these other passions – telling the stories of people, businesses, and institutions working toward justice. My favorite projects involve tasty food, beautiful architecture, and smiling faces.

I look forward to working with you and telling your story.
