Welcome to JoeyBLS Photography!
My name is Joey Lax-Salinas and I am a traveling photographer living Northwest Indiana just outside of Chicago. As a traveling photographer, I find myself in some of the most beautiful places. I’ve driven through forty-three states and have captured hundreds of thousands of photographs ranging from the city lights of Las Vegas to the many National Parks and monuments in Washington DC. I prefer to shoot landscapes, photos of urban decay, storm and weather photos, architecture, and aerial photos, although I will photograph almost anything. Nearly all of my posted photos are available for purchase or can be licensed for personal or commercial use. My photographic style varies depending on the photo, but I do use HDR (High Dynamic Range) as a technique for many (but not all) of my photos.
My work, both photos and videos, has been featured on several news stations both locally and nationally and has also appeared in magazines, billboards, promotional pieces and more. Several of my storm photos and videos have been featured on World News with Diane Sawyer, Good Morning America, The Weather Channel, CNN, WeatherNation, and many other station affiliates across the country (see About page). I have received several awards for my creative work as well, which you can also read about.
Northwest Indiana Photographer and Video Producer
Locally, I am a photographer and video producer in Northwest Indiana, serving the greater South Shore region as well as Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. As a Northwest Indiana commercial photographer, I photograph a variety of things ranging from business events, photos for car dealerships, aerial photos for real estate companies, food and restaurant photos, and many other types of photography needed by local businesses. As a Northwest Indiana wedding photographer, capturing candid moments is what I do best. While I can appreciate all of the posed, more traditional shots that go hand in hand with weddings, capturing special moments from the sidelines has always been my goal. I believe that capturing emotion with a candid, journalistic approach makes for the best wedding photography.
Are you looking for a wedding photographer for your big day? Whether you need a wedding photographer for an event in Northwest Indiana, Chicago or anywhere else, feel free to contact me with the details of the wedding and reception and I will contact you about my availability.
Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is one of the most beautiful, serene places that I have ever visited. The above photo was captured not long before driving into the park from the southern entrance. I could see that I was driving alongside a canyon and a river, but when I pulled over and actually took[...]View More »
