Originally from Sweden and raised in South Florida, Joel grew up well-acquainted with the boating life. Spending summer days at sailing school learning the ropes, his family often spent summer afternoons sailing through the archipelagoes of western Sweden. While in Florida, powerboating became a regular activity. After graduating from college, Joel developed a knack for photography and videography. Moving swiftly, Joel quickly became one of the most accomplished yachting photographers in the Florida and Caribbean for the last decade. Having stepped aboard and photographed some of the most luxurious yachts in the world, his interest in the industry grew. Joel has joined FGI in hopes of helping others fulfil their dreams of being on the water.
