Joyce discovered photography at the age of 16. Her passion for her craft led her to study at the San Francisco Art Institute where she earned a BFA. Inspired by her daughter, Grace, Joyce's focus became centered on the preciousness of family. By establishing Hilton Head Island Photography, INC., she now combines family portraiture with her love of landscape photography, taking full advantage of Hilton Head Island's beautiful beaches. Currently residing on Hilton Head Island, Joyce's work has been inspired by the pure, untouched nature of her surroundings.


I would like to thank Captain Jim and staff at the Island Explorer for the wonderful Dolphin/Nature tours. His knowledge of the waters around Hilton Head Island has allowed me to explore the Lowcountry Salt Marsh and experience the dolphins close up. I appreciate his willingness to conquer the challenges of the environment, to put me in the best possible location to capture these unique images that you see here.


If you would like to experience the positive, family friendly Dolphin Tours, please call The Island Explorer at 843.785.2100 or visit their website
