What does it mean to be seen and known? My guest today is Joy Porter, a commercial photographer and lifestyle brand creative. Joy is a friend as well as my photographer and is someone I admire because she models what it is to find your purpose and live it with passion.
Joy tells the story of the first time she held a camera and her discovery of seeing the world in a different way. Joy has taken this idea of discovery into her work as a brand and lifestyle photographer and she helps people discover how to show their true selves to the world. Joy shares her innate curiosity and her delight at ‘peeking in windows’. She also shares the story of how she answered a calling to travel to Africa and how this experience now means that her ‘heart lives in two places’.
Joy was humbled to be named in the top 1% of commercial photographers in the nation and credits her love of people and her deep desire for connection as the reason for her success.
