"Joel, Great Pics! Thanks So Much." - Larry Hagman
Joel Anderson is based in Ojai, California. Journalist, Photographer and Artist, Joel has engaged assignments with, and provided professional quality images for, Yamaha Piano Corp., Disney Music, Ojai Festivals, and photographed others (see more). Photographic prints by Anderson were purchased by Beatrice Wood for her private collection, now housed at the Smithsonian Institution.
• Joel has compiled an extensive professional photographic film & digital archive while photographing a range of subjects consistently for publication. In the process, he has enjoyed a unique view of documentary-art-photography, life.
• Project: Joel documented his uncle, Walt Dice' life. Walt was a second generation photographer who traveled the U.S. during the early through mid 20th century, operated a studio in the midwest, as well as early shooting for fire and police departments, and was a superb landscape photographer and studio portraitist. (From time to time Joel still uses many of Walt's original and revered vintage cameras such as the model pictured on this page, Kodak Medalist II, 1946.) Walt’s father was also a photographer threading back to the early “glass plate” days of the 19th Century.
• Education Background: B.A. Journalism, B. A. Art, A.A. Journalism: Joel's Formal Education and Experience are grounded in two California State (Cal State) Bachelor Degrees achieved during the same period; one in Journalism (B.A.), and one in Art, (B.A.), with an emphasis in Photography, Graphic Design, Writing and Fine Art. (Joel also obtained an earlier 2-year A.A. Journalism degree.)
