Joey Wright

is a distinguished Miami-based swimwear and lifestyle photographer. As a South Florida native, the beach inevitably became his natural habitat and day-to-day work environment. With a B.A. in Digital Media, he spent several years in the graphic design field before redirecting his creative talents toward photography. His work, primarily trademarked by its tastefully alluring and meticulously detailed quality, always reflects his easy-going approach balanced by a perfectionist nature.

He has been featured on,, Scott Kelby's Photoshop Insider Blog, 'Light It' Digital Magazine, Nik Radio, Photo Biz Xposed, Breed, Inc., Life Without Andy, Tether Talk, Critique the Community, The Art of Unpredictability, and The New York Times.

Although Joey attributes his success to devout passion and commitment, when asked if satisfied with his achievements, the response is unequivocal: "While profoundly thankful to have such a fulfilling career, I'll always remain my own toughest critic." Consequently, Joey strives to satisfy his clients’ highest expectations while simultaneously achieving peer recognition as a leading professional in the field of swimsuit photography.
