Joe Stephens; Photographer, Web designer & Technician.  

Joe Stephens 2016

Joes 5 year study in photography began with a ND in Photography and electronic imaging in Truro Collage, before progressing to a FdA in Commercial Photography at the Arts institute in Bournemouth. 

Throughout collage he was heavily involved in the music scene, shooting gigs, promo images for bands albums, posters, etc. Upon starting uni he stumbled into a new scene which he found just as captivating: the club scene. Bournemouth had a vibrant club scene and he found himself drawn to some of the quirky club events that were ran by fellow AIB'ers.

Upon leaving university and moving back home to Cornwall, photography shifted into more of a documentary role, as a side note often during his adventures with his technical work. This technical work would eventually bring him to London full time as well as take him all over the world for events.

His current career is generally focused within the computer and gaming industry as a Technician, preferring to save his photography for personal work and projects.

Joe, however, still takes on regular photographic commissions.
