Josh Dury is a recognised Landscape and Astrophotographer based in Somerset, UK with a vision to connect his audience with the night-sky.
His passion for Astronomy began at the age of seven-years old, where he was inspired by science-fiction films and programs including: BBC’s The Sky at Night and Stargazing Live. He developed his interest through Photography, which during his education was aspired towards Filmmaking.
This inspired him to travel the world to witness celestial events, including: Solar and Lunar Eclipses(2015 & 2017), The Northern Lights(2017) and the darkest skies in the world from The Atacama Desert in Chile (2019).
For his final university project at Bristol UWE, he became more aware of the impacts of light pollution on the natural world. This is when he produced and directed the short film, "Back to the Light" (2019) (click here) In July 2019, Josh graduated with First-Class Honours.
In 2020, he developed an aspiration towards becoming a Night-Sky Conservationist. He spent some time being a representative delegate of the International Dark Skies Association representing Bristol and South-West England.
He was previously a Production Runner on BBC’s The Sky at Night at Television Centre in London. He worked on series 798 for X4 episodes with x4 Production Runner broadcast credits.
