Photographer Joi A. Stokes was born in Hampton, Virginia. She developed an interest in taking pictures at a young age from her father, Edward Pearson, who was well known in their hometown for always having a camera in his hand. Upon graduating from Hampton University with a business degree in Marketing, Joi moved to Atlanta, GA where she modeled and worked as a market manager for a promotions company. In 2007, Pearson discovered her ability and passion to capture memorable events and document peoples’ personal experiences. She quickly built up a long list of clientele as a corporate event and studio photographer.
Formerly, a radio personality with the "Michael and Joi in the Morning Show" on the Sensation Station Network, Joi's media experience inspired her to create the JoiStik, an invention, that allows digital content creators the ability to stream live on multiple devices on various social media platforms. Adding Author to the list, she has multiple titles under her belt to date, including "Monetize Your Livestream".
Joi's mission with Photography, Radio, Blogging, JoiStik, and The Pearson Academy will help facilitate and teach creatives like herself to grow their talent and skills into profitable and enriching businesses.
