Joshua please tell us your talent/work rate per hour?


I have always loved fashion, more so for the reason that people believe that they can identity themselves, with a label or clothing. 
I believe we identify ourselves, with the way we treat others. What kind of person are you if you are standing naked in a room, how would you treat someone then? No labels, no way to identify yourself, or the other person. In my shoots, I look for the creativity of "having an eye" for photography. How can I make this person stand out, ornamented in whatever they are wearing? I love real smiles, real beauty and raw talent without a whole lot of photoshop needs. I would love to create a modelling agency that values the slightly provocative yet sexy mysterious, and modest side of models. An agency that would treat all models and everyone with love and humility. 

I have worked with Strikehard productions (MMA)
I have done multiple weddings.
And work doing freelance fashion/portraits.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Joshua. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I'm very observant; I can read body language and people real well. Do I love people and sociology, what ignites someone's, heart? What makes people come alive? I love collaborating and seeing people chase there dreams, as well as chasing my own. My imagination is a unique thing about me

Joshua, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?

I love photography, and writing, and acting. I love the directing side of photography as well as having an eye for it, without the need of a ton of retouch. I started ten years ago with a Nikon d40

Who is your inspiration in life Joshua? How do you keep inspired?

My wife and two daughters (my royalty) I want them to see that I never stopped chasing my dreams.

We all make mistakes Joshua; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

Honestly, I have worked alone with models and MMA fighters, I have never had any altercations. 

Joshua , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?

The clients I have worked with are usually first come first serve. I try to get a 5-10 shot preview for them.

Please tell us, Joshua, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

Location, I had multiple models showing up for a shoot. And they were all coming from different areas. Trying to get everyone the logistics were tough but doable 

Joshua, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.

My Irish mob themed shoot; I worked with a male model, female model and two MMA guys. Trying to get them to look like the family was a fun task, they all did well.

Joshua, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want with share to everyone. What is it and why?

When I landed the job with the MMA company Strikehard, who lets me photoshoot from a cage stand during the fights. With a possible sponsored trip to New York with a fight team. But also, my eye for fashion and working with talented models.

Joshua, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

When I still in Colorado, I had met a model "Emily" who ended up being a good friend and was always up for my more abstract themes. We made her look like a porcelain model with a mask. And also my Irish mob themed photoshoots got some attention from a good friend of the "Drop kick Murphys" band.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Love people. Stop treating models, MUAs, whatever like trash. We are all dreamers in a way, find out how we can help each other and stop hating.
