You know when you’ve seen a great photograph, something destined to become an icon, and you think, ‘I wish I’d taken that.’ That’s what it’s like to work with Joni Kabana.
Joni can tease the personality out of an oyster. She can light the hell out of the dullest gray box and make you want to drive it home.
She can shoot a plain, white blanket and make you want to curl up in the photo. And she can make you see things in people that make you want to spend the afternoon with them.
I’ve worked with some of the great advertising photographers in my career. And I have to say, Joni Kabana is right up there in their company. Not only that, but she’s just a nut to shoot with.
