Joanne has been a practicing architect since 1992. However, photography has been a passion for her since high school. Most recently she won the American Institute of Architects Annual Photography Competition for two consecutive years, with her winning photographs being published in their annual calendars.

During competitions you will either find her behind a camera or in the Swan Studios trailer. In the trailer, she handles the initial touch-ups and cropping of photographs and will cheerfully spend time with you reviewing your photos.

She has been riding and competing her big red mare, Oakley, in the dressage arena since 2005.
