Photographer,Cinematographer,Licensed Drone Pilot /Producer,Director
My love of photography began years ago in Los Angeles 27 years ago, when my parents bought me that first camera at the age of 15. Soon after finishing high school, I began working for Agoura Artist Studio, where I trained under Master Photographer Steven Beller, who taught me the ins and outs of wedding and portrait photography.
A few years later I trained under and became working partners with Master Photographer Anthony R. Hall. We became good friends. Anthony taught me the importance of “details, details, details” — both in my work and in my life. I attended specialized courses at UCLA and other colleges around the country, and received a broad horizon of photographic knowledge and experience from many great and creative minds. Anthony has been my best friend now for over 20 yrs.
In 1990, I opened Joel Moses Photography Studio in Woodland Hills, Calif., where I specialized in photography for the entertainment industry. My clients included professional actors, models, fashion designers and musicians. I also did portrait, wedding and commercial work. 1990 is the official year of the professional start date.
In 1995 I moved to Northern California and I relocated my studio to San Jose. I now specialize in wedding, portrait and commercial photography, and I offer complete high-end digital photography and video services. If you can dream it, we can help bring it to life. We now offer high end aerial drone photo and video services. Dynamic, compelling and just mind blowing!. Anything that you can imagine, from high rise, real estate,3D mapping and aerial footage in 4k for TV and Motion Picture.
Over the past several years, I have gained great life experience working with people of all kinds, from around the world. Photography has been my lifelong passion, a way to express my emotions and capture those of others. The best photographers possess strong technical skills as well as the ability to capture the beauty and design of a subject through the interplay of light and emotion — all within a decisive moment in time!
This is what photography means to me, and what I strive for. For me, life is a constant exploration of learning, expression and the ability to be open to the changing needs of my clients and the times we live in. My work has and will always be a never-ending journey of love, excitement and fun filled moments. I look forward to meeting you along the way and working with you. Please share with us your photographic dreams and we will make them come true!.

Joel is the BEST in San Jose! He is very good with people, is professional, and takes wonderful photos! After loving Joel's energy and the work he did for an event for us back in September, I hired him again for our biggest semiconductor event of the year. This was the "Oscars" of the semiconductor industry and had over 1400 people in attendance. Joel brought his son Daniel and colleague Sarah and as a team they did a wonderful job capturing the event.
Community Towers Renovation
Joel and his team did a incredible job shooting photos of our restoration project. It was a large scope job that had many details to cover. He was great all the way to the ribbon cutting. We have used him a few times now and are always very happy with his end results.
Shot By Dad & Son
This SF High Rise image was shot by me from an adjacent roof top. I had to lean over a 13 story rooftop deck as my son Daniel Moses was holding on to me. I leaned over the edge and said son don't let go and took this shot. It was freezing cold but how amazing we felt to overcome those fears.
