Hello, and welcome! My name is Joey Conti, and I'm the owner and founder of Conti Media. 

Growing up in Fredonia, NY, my photography experiences started at a very young age, I was in 5th grade when I had my first picture published in the local newspaper. By sixth grade I owned my first “real” camera and traveled around the state shooting sporting events for various news outlets. I was always referred to as "the kid with the camera“. After high school I was guilted into shooting some portraits, which led to a few weddings, and then a few more, and well.. now I’m a full-time photographer and content  specialist!

I spend my summer and fall months working in Western New York, and travel the world in the “off-season” - I have been fortunate enough to visit and photograph over 35 countries! I think what sets me apart from other photographers is my relaxed and fun approach, and the diversity in subject matter that I cover.

None of “this” was never planned, it kind of just happened. I’m extremely grateful for all of my friends, family, and clients (and now my team!) who have backed me throughout this endeavor, but most importantly my parents. When everyone else was pushing me to go the traditional route and “get a degree”, my parents let me follow my passion.

Whether I'm shooting professional sports or, photographing my favorite musicians, or working a wedding, every time I pick up my camera I'm so thankful I get to do this for a living. I guess what they say is true, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”.
