It was the August of 2014 and I just got my very first camera, a Sony NEX-7 with a Ziess 55mm f1.8, which you could probably buy together for under $1000 now. Most all my photos were shot at crazy settings like 1/4000 sec and 1.8, and I don't think I had any clue what I was doing. I wanted to go back and see what it would look like if I took some time and revisited these photos to compare to what I've been shooting lately, and I must say, I'm really impressed with how these photos hold up 4 years later.
With Nashville's transit upgrade discussions stalling out and there being no immediate plans to resolve Nashville's growing traffic problems, Nashville MTA reached out to me to capture real moments of what it looks like to take the bus around town. There were no rules, no specific shots, no specifics at all, and this project stretched me further creatively than any project ever has.
Living in Nashville, I often find myself at concerts I would never have thought of going to, and rarely do I leave with anything less than a greater appreciation for the talent in this city. I'm beyond grateful that I have connected with a great brand like Old Dominick who invites me out to capture their concert series here in town.
Nothing gets a photographer nervous like a 2pm wedding ceremony outside without a cloud in the sky and the sun beating down on us, but lately I've been practicing for moments like this. In the end, I am pretty excited on how most the photos turned out. Luckily, Connor & Misty's wedding took place at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, which is a gorgeous location, and this intimate wedding fit perfectly here.
"Josh has truly been a great partner to work with. He not only captures beautiful photography that makes you want to jump in the car and visit each location, but he’s also extremely professional and easy to work with. No matter the task at hand, his creativity and open-mind pushes the boundaries and accomplishes any project with an impressive result."
