What you'll do

This is a deep dive into the art of photography. Your photography. We'll spend 4 hours together going over the principles of great work, specifically designed around your level and the type of photography you want to do. We'll touch on everything, from equipment to how to see the world like a photographer; including light, composition, lens choice and working with talent. We'll look at the masters work as we go and you'll gain an understanding of how to see the world specifically for the purpose of creating unique stunning images in your own style. I will also be available after our session to look at your final images with you, through email, and offer selection and post-processing advice.
Other things to note
We can discuss camera and lens before the session, but most likely I'll be recommending one camera and one lens for our workshop.

I left a long and successful career as a Creative Director in advertising, where I worked on commercials and campaigns for some of the biggest brands in the world, to pursue my passion for photography. Today, I do deep, engaged documentary photography assignments that have taken me inside with a Major League Baseball team for three weeks, on tour around the world with a rockstar, inside tents on Skid Row and traveling around the country on assignment to document American workers. I photograph events, like ComiCon, CES, the LA Marathon, Luftgekuhlt and many others and I also do fine art photography, having recently won Top Honors at The Spider Awards in the Fine Art category. I teach documentary photography at UCSD, am an Artist-In-Residence at CalArts and a Leica Akademie Instructor.

Took a workshop with Josh and it was amazing! I have been shooting for Years but felt stuck with my photography. Josh got me looking at new things in new ways and trusting my instincts. Josh is knowledgeable, experienced, kind, and a great teacher with no attitude. Highly recommend!
