From Tasmanian destination wedding photography, through to children's portraiture sessions in Tasmania, my abilities and experience will make your next photographic need a pleasant journey.

BareFoot Photographer Tasmania represents back to roots photography, much like the feeling of walking barefoot on dewy freshly mowed grass......the smells, the feeling, the story all captured by the senses.

Our worlds are a cataclysmic mix of time poor chores, digital distractions and responsibilities that often cloud our ability to stop and accept the fresh air and emotion that surrounds us.

Photography is but one way of stopping the world around us, by focusing and capturing an image that will last a life time.

Forget the iPhone image with its over-done editing or the instagram flood of 'selfies' -professional photos are an investment and a way to look back at the effort taken to accomplish the actual event.

Photography for me works at a similar level except I'm engaged to capture all the elements using my
skills, equipment and post processing to then tell the story - in printed form....sorry no smells can be
incorporated :)

As the Barefoot Photographer I operate where the engagement leads me. Whether it be a destination wedding photography session in Fiji (Still waiting to do one but would'nt the location be awesome?) or a family portratiture session in Southern Tasmania, aI am available at short notice and can willing to travel.

My studio is located in Snug, Tasmania, 25 km from Hobart CBD, south bound towards Kettering
but just past Margate, and is always open to new work and ideas. From portraiture and children's
sessions to model portfolio enhancements and even 1950's pin-up model shoots.

Whilst the studio is a safe and controlled haven, I like to hit the road, scout out decent and
intriguing locations. This allows me to step out of my comfort zone and seek the rewards associated
with location shooting. If this is your preference holler - I'm listening.

I'm an accredited emerging member of the AIPP ( ) and am currently in the
process of attaining full endorsement.

Technically, I love to experiment with light, composition, form, and with digital post processing to
create unique results. It is my goal to create many different, original looks, and experiment with
what can be achieved.

As a photographer, I believe in bringing out inner 'model' whether it be a fashion shoot, child's portrait or an engagement photo session. My job is to extract that result using my skills and experience.

For the past 15 years I've been capturing images at varying levels of professional exposure. Mostly
existing in the commercial and digital space, my photographic experience was originally steered
towards products and their relevance on websites and other digital initiatives. The last 7 years has
seen a natural progression towards people, models and children....with dog's a close runner up.

Currently I specialise in:

* Maternity & Baby Photography
* Fashion labels
* Portfolios for models, actors and singers
* Wedding and engagement shoots
* Couples shoots
* Food and generalist publishing engagements
* Product and e-commerce specific
* Pets (with a preference for K9's but anything that breathes can be photographed)

Head on over to my website and the portfolios section to get a feel for what I can achieve -

Barefoot did an amazing job to handle my assignment given the special needs of my family - he was professional, focused and managed my two boys with incredible results...something thats never happened ina studio before.

Rachel W, Private Engagement
Jose helped me to plan my childrens shoot complete with styling, period clothing and an element of post processing never seen before. He is truly one dedicated professional and deserves this testimonial 100%. Go ahead call him you won't be dissapointed - I just wish I had found him earlier to help capture my three girls growing up.

Nathan, Private Engagement (Wedding)
Truly dedicated to his craft - made our planning and actual event one to remember...with the help of some really amazing photographs. His end album has to be seen to be believed.

My fianc and I did our engagement shoot with Jos and the experience was wonderful. Jos made up both feel completely at ease, his style of shooting is unique and his results speak for themselves. We couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome of our photo shoot and can't wait to see what he comes up with for our wedding!

Barefoot Photographer (Jos) worked with us to capture the moments leading up to the birth of our first child and the weeks following the birth. We just got to see the last shots of our newborn and all I can say is WOW! He has a great eye for detail and put forward some excellent suggestions for locations, positions, backdrops, props and outfits. Although the shots with our newborn had its challenges, his professional approach and endless amounts of patience created a warm and relaxing environment which resulted in some truly magical moments being captured. Towards the end of the shoot when things calmed down, Joss persistence paid off to capture the money shot with our newborn quietly staring directly into mums eyes. I cannot thank him enough for the magical photos which came out of the shoot, they truly exceeded our expectations and reflected the emotions and feelings at the different stages of our journey. All of our family and friends who have seen the photos have been extremely impressed. We wouldnt hesitate recommending the Barefoot Photographer to anybody seeking the best.

Jos is one of the most genuine photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. Every time we have worked together be it in studio or in the field we always have so much fun and he has an amazing ability to make you feel comfortable working with him not only on shoot but throughout the post production and release of the images. I have worked with him as a model & make-up artist and look forward to doing many more projects with this man.

I have worked with Jose on several professional projects for my business. Still photographs, video productions, on site and in studio. Jose professionalism is augmented by his understanding of the digital marketing space and the application of photography to web-based solutions. His personal work for my family has impressed all of us.

I have worked with Jose at his home studio and on location for many photoshoots as makeup artist. He is friendly, approachable, down-to-earth and professional and his photographs are beautiful. It has been a pleasure working with Jose, who has welcomed me into his home, offered me coffee and pancakes and gotten a great result from each and every shoot. Thank you Jose!

Barefoot was recommended to us by a really lovely florist. He came highly praised and in her words "he is one of those people who are really really good at their skill, but don't yet know it". I think she was right. So far we've only had one photo shoot of about 3, and when he took the pictures we wondered how, with 'that back ground' the photos would ever come out any good. When they were emailed out it gave us tears! The photo's are just amazing and we really can't wait to see the over all end results if the snapshot we've seen is anything to go by. Highly, highly recommended if your looking for something memorable, beautiful and different!!

Jose puts the human into the photographer - he is down to earth and strips away your reservations in front of the camera allowing you to show your vulnerability and feel powerful in the image. The shots he took of our children have been worn out as screen savers and have etched images in our minds forever.
