Josh is a photographer originally from Central Illinois and now living on the north shore of Lake Ponchartrain in Louisiana. In between, he has spent time living in Chicago and near New York City, Boston, and Kansas City, photographing nature, architecture and people all along the way. Recent trips in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia have extended the pages of his passport and his photography alike.

Josh graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in communications, focused on the art and design of advertising. Those skills are now directed into the art and science of user experience in design and through the camera's lens. His personal website speaks more about him outside of the realm of photography: alvies.org.
