Hi I’m Josh, a 19 year old award winning wildlife photographer from the UK, achieving recognition in a number of competitions included twice commended in the internationally prestigious Wildlife Photographer of The Year competition and 2014 Young British Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
I’ve grown up with a interest in nature since I was about 5 when I spent most of my time collecting all manner of bugs and creatures, generally anything with more than two legs. My parents bought me my first camera at the age of about 10 in the hope it would reduce the number of escapees in our home !
Rather than grow out of it my passion for the natural world has grown and now as part of a young generation of conservationist I see my photography as a way to inspire others to appreciate its beauty and influence a positive awareness towards conservation actively supporting and contributing to initiatives like A Focus On Nature.
I love to share my passion and have been regularly invited to give talks at the London Natural History Museum and even an appearance on national television when the BBC filmed me for its “Wild” show.
I’m really keen to encourage and develop a network of young nature photographers and would love to connect with people so please feel free to get in touch. I’m more than happy to share my experience and offer advice (I’m still learning as well) or simply hook up with anyone who shares my interest and passion.
Over the next year I am planning to undertake some projects which combine my photography in documenting a story – so if you have any ideas or would like to enlist a keen and enthusiastic wildlife photographer I’d love to hear from you !
I am currently studying photojournalism and documentary photography and hope to specialise within this course to pursue my goal to be a wildlife photojournalist.
