A Photographer and Filmmaker with predominant interests for Natural World subjects - from
Astrophotography, Landscapes to 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.
Recent production experience included recently working for BBC Studios as a Production Runner on The Sky at Night with a total of x4 Production Credits - with experience in both Production and Editorial roles.
Josh is passionate about the conservation of the Natural World and raising public awareness of contemporary issues - including light pollution and the impacts to our local environment and the natural world.
He is actively involved in promoting his work to address awareness the the impacts of artificial lighting at night and more recently the launch of the Starlink Constellation - which poses a threat to the night-sky within the next five-years. He is passionate about spreading the word in order to protect the night-sky for future generations.
With a current interest to extend a portfolio in camerawork, he is actively looking to create collaborations and assisting cameramen on science and natural history productions. His work extends to presenting work, astronomy tour guide and independent filmmaker.
He has further skills in writing risk assessments, method statements with a full, clean UK driving licence.
