Joshua is an award-winning photographer and certified Marine Ecology Naturalist with a photographic emphasis on coastal and marine habitats. He was recently signed to Hakai Magazine as a photographer and writer and is sponsored by Nikon USA. His awards include the 2016 California Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Top 20 in the 2019 NANPA Showcase. Joshua's publications include National Geographic, Defenders of Wildlife, Hakai Magazine, NANPA Expressions, Alaska Airlines Magazine, and The Press Democrat among others.
In the not so distant past, Joshua was focused on a career in fine art painting and illustration, but dropped out of college and switched to wildlife photography literally overnight after discovering his true calling. Soon after, he discovered that he could do more for wildlife through education, so created Wild Expectations Environmental Conservation, which focused on imagery and stories about wildlife conservation in California. Today, the organization is being renovated into the Wildlife Conservation Fellowship; a multi-tiered system that fundraises for wildlife conservation organizations, helps create or expand national parks, and adds a new professional networking system concept all geared towards global application.
