Josh is a Portraiture and Wedding photographer in the Tampa Bay area. After growing up in the Central Coast of California, he joined the United States Coast Guard and ended up serving for 21 years. While stationed in Puerto Rico, he picked up the camera for the first time and was hooked. For the next 9 years, the camera was always within his reach and would even plan trips, to other states, around things that he wanted to photograph. Upon his transition to the civilian market, he made the choice to further his education within the photography market. He registered and began taking classes at The Art Institute of Tampa. This proved to be a monumental change in his life. The Art Institute and its instructors forced him to get out of his comfort zone of sunrises over frozen lakes and start creating art with portraiture instead.
