Come for the photography, stay for the tips! We have the distinct pleasure of hosting one of Monterey’s best and brightest photographers, Joe Platko. Joe has a passion for wide angle photography and plans to show some of this work along with providing some pointers to help us improve.
Joe is a landscape and underwater photographer who currently resides in Monterey, California. He is a graduate of CSU Monterey Bay, having earned a bachelors of science focusing on marine ecosystems. It was there that he furthered his passion for the ocean by first obtaining his dive certification, and shortly thereafter buying his first underwater camera setup.
Joe currently assists with photo workshops for Bradley Photographic, and also works as a divemaster on one of the local dive boats.
