Thanks for visiting my website!

I'm Joseph Wu, Taiwanese-American father of 3 and physician with a passion for travel, adventure, and landscape photography.

I started shooting with a Nikon D40 just before a trip to Portugal in 2006. Over the years I've developed more of an interest in photography, spurred by a Muench Workshops trip to Iceland that I took in May 2014. I have been on a number of landscape and wildlife photography workshops since then but also make an effort to get out locally in the Southeast United States and shoot. My family and I have traveled extensively around the world, and since I plan most of the trips, I try to include places that are of photographic interest to me, but also will expose my kids to new cultures and adventures. 

In early 2019, I started dabbling in film photography, and the vast majority of my portfolio from 2021 onward has been shot using medium format film using Fuji 6x9 rangefinders and Pentax 67 and Mamiya 7ii kits. My favorite medium format camera to shoot with is the Plaubel Makina 67, it's a shame it's so fragile because it's a great backpacking camera. I've gravitated towards Portra 160, Fuji Pro 400H, and Velvia 50 film stock but enjoy finding and trying discontinued emulsions like Astia 100 and Fuji Pro 160NS when I can!

I still use Nikon Z7 and Nikon D500 bodies and Nikon and Zeiss lenses for nighttime and wildlife photography.

Along the way, I've learned that it's not the gear that makes the image, it's being at the right place at the right time and trying to immerse yourself in the location that really makes a photograph resonate with others.

Like Medicine, Photography is an art that I can continually practice and get better at. I've enjoyed being able to travel all over the world and capture images of places familiar and not so familiar to share them with friends and family.
