Joey Skibel has been a professional photographer for over twenty years. His assignments have taken him around the world for clients such as Ricoh Imaging, Canon USA, Beyond Clothing, Oliver Peoples Sunglasses , Pentax Cameras & Formatt Hitech Filters.
His photography has been used in global ad campaigns in both print and motion, most recently in Digital Photo Pro, Photo District News & Rangefinder Magazine. His large format Landscape prints have been showcased in La Jolla, Newport Beach & Los Angeles.
Behind most of Skibel’s work is a passion for Nature and Conservation. This passion led to assignments in Latin America and Africa, where he spent an extended period in Namibia after he first trekked 1,000 kilometers across a region in South Africa, while serving as director of photography on a film about bringing awareness to the near extinction of the African Rhino.
A proponent of new technologies , Skibel is now a Creative Master for Ricoh-Pentax Imaging , creating imagery for ad campaigns as well as training the students of tomorrow in the capabilities of the cutting edge.
He spends most of his time in the places people call wild.
