Joel Ortiz – Event Photographer
I have lived in San Diego for almost 50 years, and I love to discover new areas and new subjects to photograph every chance I get. I am very fortunate to have a dual career experience. I graduated from SDSU with BA and an MA in Linguistics.
I have been teaching English as Second Language for 26 years, and I have been a photographer/video producer for 20 years. I taught multimedia to international students and to senior citizens at SDSU’s College of Extended Studies for over 10 years. Photography is a big part of my life, as I enjoy shooting weddings, family portraits, and landscapes. I use Canon cameras for events and portraits, Sony cameras for landscapes, and DJI drones for aerial shots.
My images are available for purchase at Emerald C Gallery and La Jolla Bloomers.
As you can see from my photo collection, water is my passion. Beach sunsets and reflections make up the majority of my nature photography.
