About

PerceptionsByMayer PhotographyPerceptionsByMayer is a Destin, Florida based photography company that is family owned and operated.  Joseph Mayer resides in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida  and operates primarily in the Destin and Beaches of South Walton area.  Born in Texas, Joe moved to Eglin Airforce base as a young child with his military family and knows the Emerald Coast well and the growth it has achieved over the last  almost 3 decades.  As an adult, Joseph briefly returned to the Dallas, Texas area to take advantage of a job opportunity but quickly felt drawn to return to the beach.  Just two years away were enough to solidify Joe’s belief that these sugar-white beaches were his permanent home.

Photography had been a life-time hobby before Joe finally took the necessary leap of faith and put his talents to the test.  Originally working in 35mm and medium format, digital photography was a natural transition for Joe and has allowed him the opportunity to work on some large scale projects.

The name of the company was born from Joe’s natural ability to perceive life differently from those around him.  Never yearning to conform, Joe’s life and photography transcend the boundaries of commonality and capture the emotion of a moment in time.

Although we also operate two destination specific websites for Destin Photography services and 30a Photography Services,  we built this blog site in order to offer a more relaxed, personal page that truly reflects how photography is such an integral part of our entire life, and not just a business as well as just giving everyone a glimpse of “life at the beach”.  Some of our posts will seem random and spontaneous, while others are meant to help portray Joe’s style of photography…. regardless of intent, we welcome you to enjoy them all and hope to hear from you soon!
