In starting up my new venture, the “Talk of the Commonwealth” podcast, I did what I have done so often in the past. I sought Joe’s counsel, enthusiasm and expertise to help guide me. In this specific instance I was looking for a particular piece of music, a theme, that would set the mood. I met with Joe and as always, he immediately got what I was going for, the ideas started to flow, and in very short order Kill the Ball Media provided me with just what I needed. The follow up has been great. In the past Joe has designed ad campaigns, web sites and provided photos for different projects I have been involved in. The work is always first rate but it is the genuine interest in the task at hand that sets him apart.

Joe is an amazing photographer and Marketing guru. He has a very effective way of capturing personality in a photograph.

Joe does not do boring head shots like so many. He captures positive energy in his work.

The best part?

He truly partners with his clients and makes it a fun experience. I recommend Joe for anytime you need some out of the box creative talent.

I am thrilled to be in my third year working with Joe and Kill the Ball Media leading the way on my photography and marketing campaigns. It’s not everyday that you find a business colleague who consistently goes above and beyond like Joe does. His drive to constantly improve his services and advocate for his clients makes him a business ally that any business owner is lucky to have. I look forward to many more successful years with Joe helping to build my brand.
