Curtis Joe Walker
I am a 3rd generation Las Vegan, my grandparents having met at the Hoover Dam project in the 1930's. My interests lie in learning new skills and applying that knowledge. Photography, computer tech support, web design, acting, home improvement, classic auto maintenance, futurism and technology journalism all satisfy my interest and keep me passionately engaged. I have been a photographer for hire since 1998, with work stretching across: Weddings, Portraiture, Editorial Portraits, Nightlife, Architectural, Product, Travel and Erotica. Since 2010, my primary goal has been to get my studio, Photo Bang Bang, up to speed as a business and turn it into a resource for the local and traveling photographic community. Photo Bang Bang is located in Downtown Las Vegas, on the fringe of the Arts District. Open for reservations every day and host to an open house during every First Friday Art Walk. I am engaged in the upcoming downtown community and I have been contributing my artistic services here when and where I can. Helping new businesses out with affordable and amazing images for their web presence is one way I've helped out Artifice Bar and Atomic Liquors. I work as a freelance technology journalist. I have written and photographed for Professional Photographer Magazine, Dealbreaker.com, Gizmodo.com, Jalopnik.com, Dvice.com, Mashable.com amongst others. I have developed specialized cloud based trade show workflows that offers remote editors coverage nearly as good as being there. In addition to this, I am also always exploring new ideas and ways of thinking in an effort to gain better empathy and optimism. I enjoy forward looking technologies such as vehicle autonomy, alternative fuels, business transformations and wet ware. I don't often get to do photography for fun, but whenever I have a camera in my hand, I'm having fun!
