Joe Ercoli Year in Review - My Top 7 Images From 2014

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] This has been an incredible year for me, photographically speaking, and while I may not have gotten out to shoot as much as I would have liked to, I feel like I made the most of the sessions that I had and came away with […]

Night Image of the New San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge!

As soon as I heard that the bridge was open, I was out the door like a shot with my gear in hand so that I could capture this little piece of history.

Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary Fireworks

The Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th Anniversary was a once in a lifetime event and I was there, camera in hand! Prints of the image made during the fireworks are available now!


Welcome to the Hive – San Jose City Hall in HDR

Welcome to the Hive - San Jose City Hall in HDR

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I’d never seen San Jose City Hall in person before the night that I shot this image, but I was kind of weirded out and intrigued all at the same time. Being in the heart of Silicon Valley, I wasn’t exactly expecting traditional architecture (see […]


El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] When I’m traveling (and most of the time when I’m not) my camera is always with me and I usually make it a point to shoot as much as I can. Luckily, hard drive space is (relatively) cheap, but


PPGBA Print Competition Update!

PPGBA Print Competition Update!

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I’m super stoked to share this news with the world! In fact, I’ve been holding on to the first part of this for about a month and just haven’t had the time to sit down an hammer out an announcement. At last month’s PPGBA (Professional […]


Spring Training Road Trip

Spring Training Road Trip

[fb_like] Today I leave on yet another epic road trip, this time to SF Giants spring training in Scottsdale, AZ. Leaving from the SF Bay Area under the cover of darkness, there wouldn’t seem to be many


San Francisco Seven Sisters – Girls Night on the Town

San Francisco Seven Sisters - Girls Night on the Town

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I could almost hear the 7 Sisters laughing at us as we visited them for a shoot. I ran up to San Francisco one night with Tom and Paul to shoot this row of Victorian houses that has graced magazine covers, postcards and the opening […]


Escaping My Grasp – Golden Gate Shrouded in Fog

Escaping My Grasp - Golden Gate Shrouded in Fog

[fb_like] I’m still waiting for that elusive shot: the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge completely covered in a thick blanket of fog with only the tops of the two towers peeking out. As many times as I’ve shot this bridge (many, many times!), the conditions have never been just right. Last night I […]


Vacation to Hearst Castle

Vacation to Hearst Castle

[fb_like] I’d wanted to go to Hearst Castle ever since seeing it from Hwy 1 while passing by on a road trip. The scale of the place blew my mind as I

Azeneth and Willie - Honeymoon in San Francisco

[fb_like] I got the call from Azeneth letting me know that she and her husband, Willie, would be on their honeymoon in San Francisco and that she wanted to surprise her husband by hiring a photographer for portrait session as a wedding gift. Being from New York they didn’t know

[fb_like] I’m totally blown away by the results of last Thursday nights print competition at PPGBA and I’m super honored to have done as well as I did. This hand-held HDR image scored


Entering the Concrete Jungle

Entering the Concrete Jungle

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] Remember on a hot summer day you’d run through the sprinklers or maybe you had one of those toys that hooked up to the hose that was a fountain that had a bunch of hoses whipping about with water shooting out of the ends? The […]


Out to Pasture – Listen to Your Heart

Out to Pasture - Listen to Your Heart

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I did a presentation on HDR a week ago for the folks at AMPP and one of the attendees, Michael Kendrick, and I were talking about how our passion for photography has


Hand-held HDR and SF Financial District

Hand-held HDR and SF Financial District

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I’ve been hearing it from the so-called self proclaimed experts on internet forums that hand-held HDR is impossible or “you won’t get good results!” Just the mere mention of hand-holding


Crushdown in HDR at the Gate

[fb_like] Last month Todd from the local band Crushdown came to me saying that they needed some cool promo shots and asked if I could create


Hoover Dam at Night

Hoover Dam at Night

I got back a few days ago from my annual road trip with the guys to spring training in Phoenix loaded with images taken along the way. In usual form, I was planning on holding off the images for one big post but….


Weathering the Storm

With all of the rain and clouds covering much of California lately, I was reminded of this image that I shot last June in Lake Tahoe.

[fb_like] Near the end of a relaxing afternoon wine tasting in the Temecula area, I was inspired to grab this image as I saw


Seeing Griffith at Night in HDR

Seeing Griffith at Night in HDR

[fb_like] While I sometimes get in just a bit over my head after a project snowballs bigger than I expected or sometimes I just procrastinate, this time it may be a mix of the two. I’ve got a lot going on photographically at the moment (sweet!) and I’m working hard to make sure that something […]


A California Christmas

A California Christmas

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] While driving back from Auburn, CA, after a day of wine tasting with my girlfriend, the rain stopped coming down long enough to make a stop off at the state capitol in Sacramento. I’ve been to Sacramento plenty of times on the way to Tahoe […]


Diwali 2009 – Shooting with Passion

Diwali 2009 - Shooting with Passion

[fb_like] While working as a freelance shooter for a local newspaper, I’ve had to shoot a lot of different subjects that I normally wouldn’t ever thought of capturing with my camera. Tanning beds at a spa? Nope, it’s not my first choice for my latest HDR effort. How about a dog walk-a-thon at the new […]


St. John’s Cemetery

St. John's Cemetery

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I was dumbfounded when Paul told me, but I couldn’t believe there was something cool right here in my old stomping grounds that I didn’t know about. He and I were planning to do a night shoot of a small graveyard that dated back to […]


A Night at the Park

A Night at the Park

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] Honest! I didn’t know that the Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco was closed to the public past 10pm… But the security guard was really cool about it. Instead of outright kicking us to the curb, he politely asked us to finish up our shots […]
