Urban Cowboy Photography by Joseph Casas

I am a lawyer and professional photographer with a passion for capturing the joie de vivre - the exuberant enjoyment of life - through the lens of my camera. My goal is to capture the very essence of life in every picture I take while telling the story behind the picture in a way that takes you on your own special journey.

I can honestly say I have been capturing photographs of the world around me since I was a child. My father, Mario Casas, was an artist and consummate bohemian. Every where he took me, he would encourage me to observe the scene, take in the sights, sounds, smells...then close my eyes and capture that very moment. When I first picked up a camera, composition came naturally. My goal was simple, capture that moment, just like my father taught me.

I'm married to the love of my life, my best friend, Norma, mother to my two sons, Sebastian and Benjamin, and my daughter Viviana.

I'm forever an infantry Marine turned Navy JAG Prosecutor who gave 13 years of service to our great Country. While I enjoy traveling, Texas is home. I love big cities, but can't shake those country roots, I'm a true urban cowboy.
