ABOUT

Let me introduce myself. My name is Joe Mabe, a 14 year U.S. Navy Veteran who served in Desert Shield/Desert Storm and Bosina. During my time in the Navy, I fell in love with photography and became the command photographer at several commands. I had the privilege of being one of the few photographers of the Naval Submarine Base Groton Conn. Newspaper. There i did mostly sports; softball and flag football. I had the privilege to photograph Chief Ralph Sturgis (Tribal Chief of the Mohican Nation), the lovely and famous Tina Turner in concert. The most satisfying assignment was photographing the launch of some of the U.S. Navy warships.
After discharged from the U.S. Navy, I took a break from the camera to decide what I wanted to do in life.  So, January 2004,I became a member of the International Professional Rodeo Association where I followed my passion and became a rodeo photographer. I also shoot other things like Family Portrait, Weddings, and any other special event.
