Check out his work on his Instagram feed @fuzyjoe.

Jose's keen insights, vision, enthusiasm, vast knowledge about sports and his good humor are a wonderful additions to the stable of award-winning photographers on the Sports Shooter Academy faculty. He joins the faculty that includes: Wally Skalij (Los Angeles Times staff photographer), Keith Birmingham (Los Angeles News Group staff photographer), Bob Deutsch (USA TODAY staff photographer), Hannah Foslein (Getty Images and Associated Press contributing photographer), Myung J. Chun (Los Angeles Times staff photographer), Kelvin Kuo (USA TODAY and Associated Press contributing photographer), Mike Goulding (educator and freelance photographer), Michael Der (Los Angeles-based freelance photographer) and Anwar Torres (Los Angeles-based freelance photographer).
