Joe Giron’s professional career began in 1983 as a staff photographer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in Texas. A chance assignment to shoot an up-and-coming local band led to a lasting friendship with one of hard rock’s most revered bands, Pantera. That, in turn, led to shooting many other artists, including AC/DC, David Bowie, Gwen Stefani, Van Halen, and U2, just to name a handful, for many of the world’s leading rock magazines. Today, his niche is in the gaming industry as the photographer for the World Poker Tour and as head of the official photography team at the World Series of Poker. He lives in Las Vegas.
