Bonjour !

My name is Joël Thai. I grew up in Paris and I also lived in the United States for internships, graduate school, research, and teaching in my early 20s. I am a data science consultant, passionate photographer, triathlete, and world traveler. I love embarking upon adventures, traveling to fast-paced cities, discovering remote wild places, learning new things, and making new friends. 


How did you start photography?

Growing up with globetrotting parents, I started traveling extensively and taking photos at a very young age. I loved documenting our trips with my parents’ point-and-shoot cameras. Several years ago my uncle introduced me to SLR photography and I was instantly thrilled by the new experience and potential! I really enjoyed discovering my creative side through photography.


When did photography become a passion?

It was while living in Berkeley, California that my interest in photography became a real passion. The sheer beauty of San Francisco gave me an urge to shoot photographs and share California’s gorgeous places with family and friends.
