Joe Dassaro | Murfreesboro PhotographerFor those who do not yet know me or my story (we all have them), I have lived in Murfreesboro since 2005 and I am married with 2 gorgeous daughters and a gorgeous wife. I spent my childhood growing up on the South Shore of Long Island, NY. I joined the Army and spent a few years traveling Europe, afterwards becoming an avid SCUBA diver (PADI) working dive boats as a Rescue Diver/Divemaster off Long Island. I also spent 13 years in Southern California working as a United States Border Patrol Agent. I have a B.A. in Labor Studies and an M.A. in Legal and Ethical Studies and currently hold the position of Chief Labor Relations Consultant with a large U.S. Government Agency in the area. I have published written works on border security and unionism and appeared in documentaries and major news programs. I am a freelance professional photographer. Photography for me started in High School. In the late 90’s, I found myself doing editorial photography along the badlands of the southwestern border with Mexico; effectively launching my photography career. After moving to Murfreesboro in 2005, I began photographing clients and doing pro-bono work for local youth sports and events. Few other areas are as infinite as human expression and form, drawing attention and fascination. I rely on a relaxed photo-journalistic approach in portraiture; integrating off camera lighting to bring out detail and separation. Though I specialized in portraiture, I now focus on editorial, commercial, street photography, and fine art. My shooting style is relaxed, casual, confidential, and client centric.
