About Us

The creative photographic mind of Joe (JJ) Szymczyk aka: The Real PhotoJoe is the founder and driving force behind Action Metal Photo under the umbrella of the Action Promo Group. Starting at the age of 19 equipped with a Pentax ESII and a beautiful model, the passion for excellence in photo media began. With well over the prerequisite 10,000 hours logged in almost immediately, the journey continued with learning from some of the world’s finest and most accomplished photographers. Years of work, study and experimentation have culminated into making PhotoJoe an accomplished photographer.

Joe toiled through the years working relentlessly in the corporate life until the world of photography pulled him into its sphere. While working as a photographer, the important aspect of conveying the image from the minds’ eye onto paper or media became the challenge.

Starting in 2009, sublimation became the focus of all Joe’s photo reproduction efforts. From full colour inscription plates for plaques and trophies, to sublimated apparel and merchandise, the equipment, substrates, products and knowledge base got better and better. Now with well over a decade of experience, we produce some of the finest examples of metal photo printing anywhere.

The beginning of the passionate love affair with Action Metal Photo was love at first sight. The colour, the vibrancy, the overall pop is unreal. From the first glance metal photo printing was the preferred choice.

Action Metal Photo along with all the talented artisans working there, have mastered the complex aspects and difficult art of the metal photo printing, with utmost accuracy and precision, resulting in sharp, vibrant, dynamic images and thus being able to reproducing them on Action Metal Photo panels.

Action Metal Photo is the world’s leading manufacturer of high-definition sublimatable photo panels.

Whether you are displaying your artwork in your home, office, commercial setting or gallery the results are breathtaking and impressive. Some of the world’s best known photographers, galleries, and museums trust their work to Action Metal Photo.

Oh, and by the way, that old Pentax ES II along with many other memorable and sentimental artifacts are hidden away in our showroom.  Look carefully next time you’re in and you might see them.
