Welcome to Joel Gendelman Photography.

I am a professional photographer in the Winston-Salem area. I am a juried professional. My work is exhibited internationally and I have won a myriad of awards. For specifics on my background, exhibitions, and accolades, I invite you to review the About Us section of this site.

While my specialty is portraits, I also capture nature and landscapes. I am available for custom portraits, photographs of families and special events, corporate photography, and other commissioned work.
