I am a Houston based editorial and sports photojournalist. I am able to edit, caption AP Style cut lines, and transmit on location to meet deadlines. I am able to cover assignments in the greater Houston, Bryan / College Station, Huntsville, and other surrounding areas of Southeast Texas with as little notice as 24 hours.
I originally started Joe Buvid Photography back in 2008 while I was a student attending Sam Houston State University (SHSU). While attending SHSU, I began freelancing for The Huntsville Item's - IT'z Magazine and The Houstonian, the student newspaper of SHSU. I worked as a stringer for The Houstonian for a semester before being hired on as a staff photographer. I was promoted to head photographer my senior year. During my time with The Houstonian, I was fortunate enough to win multiple Texas Intercollegiate Press Association (TIPA) awards, for both sports photography and editorial published materials and in on-site competitions.
I graduated from Sam Houston State in the fall of 2010 with a BBA in Economics and Marketing. After college, I moved back to Houston and wanted to continue covering sports and news. I became a freelancer for a local area newspaper, the Conroe Courier. I am currently a regular freelancer for the Houston Chronicle and have begun freelancing for the Associated Press.
