Joe Greer Gave Up Clergy - for Instagram

A look at the portfolio of Joe Greer, a photographer who wanted to be a pastor and now has half a million followers on Instagram

I found photography by mistake. I was planning my future to walk into full-time ministry and biblical teaching as a pastor. Then, the most unexpected thing happened. Photography. 

Photography has become the way that I communicate. How I tell my story and how I tell the story of what is around me. I believe in the power of a photograph. I literally believe a photograph is worth a thousand words, if not more.  In the hyper viral age that we now live in, I have become obsessed with the unnoticed beauty found in the mundane and unlikely moments that pass us by everyday. I believe that if you slow down and take the time to stop and notice, you’ll be surprised by what you can see.
