About Me


My name is Joe Were and I'm a documentary, portraiture and travel photographer.

I first picked up a camera around December 2014 after trying my hand at documenting daily life on my phone for 2 years. I got my first (paid) assignment about a month later and never looked back since. I knew this was what I wanted to do.

My main aim has been to show the beauty, strength,  and enthusiasm of people in daily life situations... especially placed in context of their environment.  I look for a sense of realism, defiance, mood and fortitude in my work.
