My name is Joel Echelberger. I am a portrait, editorial, fashion and artist photographer currently living in the Akron/Portage Lakes, Ohio area. I was born and raised in the small town of Hayesville, Ohio. I’ve been in a bunch of bands, I have tattoos, I shave my head, I wear jeans and white t-shirts…and I make photographs. I am available nationwide.
I love spending time with my two kids Mallory and Max and my dog Harvey. I enjoy listening to music and slammin’ a hot cup of coffee…or two…ok…a lot of coffees. I love coffee.
I rarely watch TV and I’m not much in to sports…although I do get a kick out of old Andy Griffith Show reruns and televised hot dog eating contests.
It’s the photographer that makes the images, the camera and lens are just tools.
I use Nikon and Fuji cameras exclusively and endorse the following products and services.
