Born Joey Lawrence, he adopted the moniker Joey L when he was given the nickname to differentiate him from the other Joey in his class. Despite having no formal photography training, L’s self-taught skills have bagged him commissions from the U.S. Army, Jose Cuervo, National Geographic, and Canon. This year he won the Mediastar award for Lavazza’s Wimbledon campaign, and in 2009 he got first place in the Professional Portrait division in the Professional Portrait division of the International Photography Awards.
