Simply put, Joel is on a mission to document endangered species and landscapes in order to show a world worth saving.

His first National Geographic assignment introduced him to nature photography, and also allowed him to see human impact on the environment first-hand.
In his words, “It is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity. When we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves.”
In addition to his work he has done for National Geographic, Joel has contributed to Audubon Magazine, Geo, Time, Life, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and numerous book project.
