Joy Strotz combines her passion for photography, over a decade of modeling, experience in television production and the journey of raising three boys to bring a creative edge to her photography.

Joy received her broadcasting degree at San Francisco State University where she received the acclaimed Albert Johnson Award. At SFSU she specialized in directing live television, and was trained in cutting edge digital video editing and production. Prior to her time in San Francisco, Joy modeled in Chicago and was seen on magazine covers, in catalogs and television ads. Her experience as a model has put many clients and new models at ease in front of the camera, giving them just enough direction to make them look like pros.

She has photographed runway shows from New York to Barcelona and Paris, as well as behind the scenes exclusives of designers Marchesa, Galia Lahav, Yolan Cris, Ziad Nakad, Mark Zunino, Pnina Tornai, Julien Fournié and many others.

In 2020 her work was featured on the covers of Touch Magazine, Red Hot Monde, GMARO, MOEVIR Paris and Pump Magazine.

"Capturing the moment in the most creative way possible" has always been the driving force in Joy's craft.
