Josh stumbled upon his love and excitement for photography late in high school. Using the camera to document his travels and skateboarding adventures with friends the hobby then turned into a passion.


Josh completed his Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Photomedia at Sydney College of the Arts ( Sydney University) where he explored analogue film in 35mm, medium and large formats as well as engaging in physical art and design, dabbling in sculpture, jewllery and glass blowing.


He has worked commercially in video and stills, from studio product photography, apparel, interior design, portraiture and events. A strong passion for sailing also lead him to a summer of filming yacht and dinghy racing in the UK.


He says "My favourite thing about making pictures are the memories that come with them, I love capturing the people around me only to recall fond memories and time well spent"
