Josef Kandoll is originally from Washington State but lives now in the quaint downtown of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico. He studied artistic photography and completed his formation with various journalism workshops to join his two great passions: images and writing. As he found Mexican culture fascinating, he decided to move down from the United States and make his life on the other side of the border, choosing Puerto Vallarta as his second home. He says that Mexico offers a magic combination of creativity, history, art, people, and endless opportunities to experiment with all of them every day.
He came here and immersed himself totally. He learned Spanish walking on the streets of Vallarta and talking to local people, and reading as much as he could. He fell in love with pozole, Menudo, and enchiladas Suizas. He maintained himself awake during long hours of work, thanks to tacos de Lengua. He even worked as an English teacher for one season before making his name as a journalist and photographer. Now, he is simply one citizen more of this beautiful city contributing as a writer and photographer to write its history.
He never stops working. When he is not writing an article for local and international magazines, he makes photographs. You can probably meet him with his camera at the major events of Banderas Bay and later find his photographs on the web. You may request his services for a wedding, and you will get an unforgettable set of photographs: preparations, family portraits, group shots, atmosphere, toasts, details. Later, in rough times, you may look at the pictures and remember when your happiness began.
He is also a villa photographer. It is essential to possess great images of your rental vacation villa that will make it look more spectacular than hundreds of other villas available in the area.
