Life & Work with Joy Asico of DMV Area

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joy Asico.

Hi Joy, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
It all started while studying abroad in London. I was away from home and adjusting to the new life. I started learning about photography to document my new surroundings; I started capturing everything from my point of view. This catalyst helped turn my love for the craft into a business. Through hard work and perseverance, my camera has taken me to amazing places and the opportunity to meet fantastic people. It has taken me to the White House to photograph the President, backstage at memorable shows featuring top artists, and capture activists changing history. I’ve worked hard to get where I am today and still strive to be better than I was the day before. I am so grateful for everything that has come my way and I look forward to what the future has in store.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a smooth road?
While I had to create my path, I was lucky enough to find people who believed in me. There were plenty of times I thought I wasn’t good enough or there by mistake (sometimes I still think that). Still, I found my style and grew confident as more and more people trusted me with bigger and more interesting jobs; through all this, I have tried to remain true to who I am and what story I want to tell through my lens. They have become my cornerstone, support system, and clients.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a professional photographer who has owned her business for over 10 years specializing in editorial, commercial and large-scale event photography. I am known for crisp, clean photos and my ability to capture the emotion and essence of my subject. Whether it’s an intimate portrait, controlled studio shoot, or fast-paced event coverage, I capture a moment in time and express it through vibrant imagery.

What does success mean to you?
Success, to me, is the fulfillment I get after the hard work, the long hours, and the constant mental push of continually challenging myself and striving to be the best at my craft that I can be.
