A post-graduate specialising in Natural History Filmmaking with predominant interests in
Astrophotography, Landscapes and Wildlife.
Josh is a Photographer and Filmmaker based in Somerset with a passion for the Natural World.
Josh began his interest in Astronomy at the age of seven-years old and has carried that with him ever since. Josh has actively been involved with astronomical societies, including Wells and Mendip Astronomers - where he provides lectures and engages members of the public to look up at the night-sky.
Throughout his education, Josh developed his passion for filmmaking and was inspired by the content from both The BBC Science and Natural History Units. Josh then later produced a film for his final major project, called "Back to the Light" - a film that explores light pollution and its impacts on the natural world. He later graduated from Bristol UWE with First-Class Honours.
His interest in Astronomy inspired him to travel the world and opened his interests in Landscapes, Wildlife and History. From the Northern Lights in Iceland, to The Total Solar Eclipse in The United States and more recently, Chile and Easter Island.
Since then, Josh has undertaken work experience as a Runner for major Production Houses in Bristol, such as Films at 59 and The Wildscreen Festival. Opportunities have extended from recent projects with BBC Sky at Night Magazine and English Heritage, ESERO UK Space Ambassadors, to shortlisted images in photography competitions, such as Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year.
He has further skills in writing risk assessments, method statements with a full, clean UK driving license.
Josh is currently working for the BBC as a Runner for The Sky at Night with x2 Production Credits.
I am now currently looking for opportunities to extend a portfolio in camerawork - to assist cameramen on science and natural history productions and extend opportunities as an astronomy tour guide and as an independent filmmaker.
