Joey Wright is a distinguished Miami-based swimsuit photographer. As a South Florida native, the beach inevitably became his natural habitat and daily work environment. He spent several years in the graphic design field before redirecting his creative talents toward photography. His work, primarily trademarked by its tastefully alluring and meticulously detailed quality, always reflects his calm yet perfectionist nature.
Joey was recognized by Westcott Lighting in 2010 when they chose him as one of their Westcott Top Pros and has made several guest appearances on Photoshop User TV and D-Town TV. He has been featured on SI.com, Fstoppers.com, Scott Kelby’s Photoshop Insider Blog, ‘Light It’ Digital Magazine, Nik Radio, Photo Biz Xposed, Tether Talk and The New York Times. His work earned first place in the 2014 Edge Shave Gel – Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition “Dream Job” contest. A brief list of Joey’s clients include Montce Swimwear, Ravish Sands Swimwear, Noelle Swimwear, Perfect Tan Bikini, ONE.1 Management, Ford Models, Next Model Management, Devoted Creations, Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders (NFL), Tropic Beauty Model Search and The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Although Joey attributes his success to devout passion and commitment, when asked if satisfied with his achievements, the response is unequivocal: “While profoundly thankful to have such a fulfilling career, I’ll always remain my own toughest critic.” Consequently, Joey strives to satisfy his clients’ highest expectations while simultaneously achieving peer recognition as a leading professional in the field of swimsuit photography.
Until now, Joey hasn’t exposed his shooting techniques – mostly because he’s been too busy putting them to use. Fstoppers is excited to have him share-all while providing students the opportunity to shoot gorgeous models on the beautiful beaches of the Bahamas. His two-day course will cover pre-production, shooting on location and post-production in a way which will help to improve your workflow while offering an unforgettable experience. Afterwards, you’ll spend more time shooting and less time planning or retouching.
You won’t find Joey’s techniques on YouTube or anywhere else for that matter. His methods come from years of experience working with hundreds of models. He’s even spent time on location with Sport’s Illustrated during their Swimsuit shoot. Check out the video below for a broader scope of his workshop and jump down to his class links for the full course details.
