About Josh

I’m a surfer, sailer, intramural-softball player and adventure junkie. Growing up in Florida, I developed an early bond with the ocean, which influences my creative endeavors. I attended the University of Miami and received a BS in Biology. After graduating, I focused on connecting people to the natural world through digital media. I started my career as a photographer for the University of Miami Shark Research and Conservation Program. I’ve traveled and worked in over 35 countries across 5 continents, partnering with global brands and organizations to communicate their vision. In my pursuit of story, I’ve sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, trekked through Yellowstone mid-winter, and held my breath with the ocean’s top predators. I’ve worked with Instagram, NIKON, Discovery Channel, Sandals Resorts, Creative Drive, prAna, Hook & Tackle, Freestyle Watches, the University of Miami, Global Expeditions Group, Beneath the Waves, and many more. My passion lies in helping others achieve their creative vision. I turn your dreams into deliverables through listening, problem solving, and a trial-tested creative process. Whether your product helps people get outdoors, or is the outdoors, I’m here to tell your story.

    Josh was incredibly professional, capturing all the shots we were hoping to get and even going above and beyond by writing out his own detailed shot list with camera movements and tips. We would work with him again in a heart beat.

    There are few animals on earth as mysterious and charismatic as humpback whales. The fact that many hundreds migrate down to Mexico’s Pacific coast each year belies the fact that we nearly eliminated them from our planet. Join the AWC crew as we journey down to the idyllic Riviera Nayarit coastline to commune with whales and whale ecotourism guide, Javier Alvarez. Together, we explore the deep connections between whales and people, uncover the mysteries of these aquatic giants, and listen to the haunting Song of the Whale.
