I am a Photographer, an Author, and an Inventor! I specialize in Corporate Event photography before I invented Joistik I would say that I was known for always getting my clients the “money shot” now I am known for live streaming and helping people monetize it. I even wrote a book about it.
I am proud that all of the businesses that I have had, I have stayed true to my values, my morals, my ethics and most importantly, I never wavered and let the tough times steal my dream! I am proud that I set goals and I reach them, always setting more goals so that I am always striving for more in life! I am proud that I have family and friends that look up to me and that I continue to make proud!
Every day I strive to give each hour that God has given me the best, that is what helps me sleep peacefully at night and it continues to make me proud. I have a post-it on my mirror and it says, “What did you do today to make yourself proud?” I strive to answer back positively every day.
Born and raised in Hampton, VA I graduated from Hampton University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. After school, I moved to Atlanta, GA where I currently reside. Dedicating year to sales, management, modeling, and working as a personal assistant, I decided that I wanted to pursue my love for photography full time. I always had both my parents at all my events growing up, so when my son, Brenton was born in 2010 I knew that was the only way I’d want it with him. I immediately picked up a camera and I have never looked back! I am a full-time photographer with over 10 years of experience and many more to go!
Event photography and shooting on the red carpet introduced me to my co-host on air, Michael McFadden whom we had a morning radio show called “Micheal and Joi in the Morning” for over two years. When the show first started, Periscope had just become popular and I had to get in on the wave. Over the two years that we were on the air, we interviewed over 1500 guests and we live-streamed the majority of the shows. That live streaming platform is what brought me to my current invention the Joistik, a device that will allow you to live stream or record on multiple platforms, multiple devices simultaneously. “Stick to what you do best and let the Joistik do the rest!”
I am currently working on expanding Joistik, Joi Pearson Photography, working on another book and something fun involving talk and TV with my husband, Ken Stokes.
Through photography my clients are able to invite others into their lives in a way that isn't possible with spoken word. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words.
I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell my stories.
I've love taking pictures and I'm inspired by the love I have for the beauty found in everyday settings. I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments. There's a picture around every corner.
