About - Bobby Joe Smith III

Bobby Joe Smith III is a freelance photographer and web developer working out of Minneapolis, MN.  Bobby Joe’s fascination with image making served as a conduit to other creative fields, and in the spring of 2015 he founded codeblkcreative to bring his artistic exploration of the intersection between photography, videography, and computer programming under one roof.

Bobby Joe pursued a formal education in digital and analog photography through continuing education courses at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and informally as a photo assistant for Mark Seliger, Daniel Matallana, Chaz Cruz, and Coty Tarr.

When he’s not tinkering on various projects at his photo studio in North East Minneapolis, Bobby Joe can be found exploring new places with his Contax G2 and inevitably shooting more rolls of film than he has time to develop.
