About (Joe) P Wiegmann – Photographer

As far back as I can remember, I was always engaged in creative endeavors such as drawing and painting. Throughout my school years, I was often involved in art projects and learned early that creating artwork for the school bulletin boards would gain me extra credit and brownie points. Two years of Civil Engineering at the University of Maryland did not provide me with the means to express my creativity. I changed my major to Fine Arts and while that didn’t make my parents happy, they were supportive of my new goals. After 43 years in the graphic design field and serving as a Creative Director, I retired and moved to the Wilmington area.

The beauty and natural energy of the people and places here have rekindled my own creative energy. I use my photography like any artistic media. I love to achieve strong lines, great contrast, textures and shapes in my photos. A strong composition is very important also. My goal is to capture an emotion or interest seen through my eyes and present it to you in a way that excites YOUR eyes. I hope you enjoy.
