Photographer Joseph Hill is known as the “unofficial mayor” of Southern Pines, North Carolina. He’s currently the exclusive photographer for the Southern Pines Welcome Center, where many of his pictures are available for purchase as postcards. His work has been featured in PineStraw Magazine and on the front page of The Pilot newspaper. 

Joseph also has autism, and he's on a mission to spread positivity and encourage other entrepreneurs like himself. (Note: I'm using person-first language like "has autism" for Joseph at his request.)

During this episode, you will hear Joseph talk about:

  • What it was like growing up with autism
  • How his parents and family friend have helped him develop his passion and career as a photographer
  • How he finds and captures the beauty of everyday things in his photography
  • The photograph that helped kickstart his photography career
  • His mission to spread positivity and encouragement

For more information about Joseph and his photography, you can find him on his official website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
