Curl BC has really loved working with Joe Carlson. From our first interaction with Joe, when he was assigned to take photos at the 2014 BC Wheelchair Curling Championship, to the most recent interaction, the 2016 Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship, Joe was a fantastic asset. The quality of photos that we got went above and beyond our expectations. What’s more, Joe was able to deliver the photos for a tight deadline. He did all this with a smile on his face. We would work with Joe again in a heartbeat.

The VIBC Society has been working with Joe Carlson for the past two consecutive years. He has provided event photography services for over eight of our events, and captured the true essence of each event. Joe Carlson is reliable, arrives in-advance to events, and provides event photography files in a timely fashion. At times, Joe Carlson was requested to photograph events for seven consecutive hours. And even during those long days, he always remained professional and provided the VIBC Society with high-quality images that we could also use in our future marketing materials. We would highly recommend Joe Carlson for your future event.

As Communications Lead for the City of Bhangra Festival, I’ve had the pleasure of working with event photographer Joe Carlson for two years now. Joe is the consummate professional: attentive, knowledgeable, responsive to questions and ideas, and, of course, a truly great photographer, able to capture intimate as well as epic moments beautifully. He has given the Festival some of its most enduring moments on camera, and I would highly recommend his services for projects large or small. With his experience and expertise, I trust Joe completely to provide spectacular images—on time and in user-friendly formats—every time, and would feel fortunate to work with him again.
