Oh hi there
Allow me to introduce myself
I'm Josh. I enjoy long walks alone in remote places at sunrise, fresh baked bread with honey, and creating beautiful concepts with interesting people. When not taking photos of things. places, and people, I can be found drinking coffee, craft beer, or the sights, sounds, and smells of wherever I am in.
I kicked off my saga with photo medium back in high school, meeting up with friends to do small portrait sessions and little projects here and there. In college at the University of South Carolina, I expanded to editorial, lifestyle, and high fashion work with Garnet & Black Magazine, where I rose from a photographer to the Photo Director (in charge of major stories, assignment, editing, and creative direction). Working with the many incredible people at G&B is the reason that I know much of what I know today, both in photo and photo manipulation, since I was (and still am) preparing a BS in Chemistry and had no other avenue to gain insight into the industry.
My biggest current influences are Alex Strohl, Alexander Sattler, Hunter S. Thompson, Ben Sasso, and Dean Martindale. The first four have an unparalleled penchant for storytelling (something I hope to be able to match someday), and Dean/Ben are frankly just stylistic monoliths to me.
I’m looking forward to meeting and working with you!
