Her work has garnered numerous awards, is shown in galleries internationally, and has been published extensively. She currently teaches for several institutions and organizes her own street and international photography workshops.

She gives back to the community by balancing her creative commercial work with humanitarian non-profit projects. Her recent work with Mercy Corps International in India and Nepal and her work with rural hospitals in Ethiopia garnered two American Society of Media Photographer’s “Best of” designations, and she has helped numerous charitable organizations relay their unique purposes.  She has served on many committees and boards, including The Children’s Cancer Association, The John Day River Territory Agri-tourism Project and Photolucida.

Joni is available for consultation, lectures, workshops and classroom teaching, in addition to commercial advertisement and portrait/editorial assignments.
