About me

Hello everyone, my name is Josh and I am an amateur photographer. I enjoy nature in every aspect and I try to show it in all it's glory. Although many of my shots are of wildlife I don't always know the names of each bird / mammal / reptile / etc. Sorry I do take photos of many things but nature is my primary focus.

I grew up with very creative parents. They instilled art and music into my soul. I have gone through many different artistic genres. I've painted, sketched, sculpted, airbrushed, and drawn comic strips. I've also played guitar and flute. Only until recently did I fall in love with photos.

After getting engaged to the love of my life, she had a desire for a nice camera to use at family gatherings. Being the nice guy that I am, I bought her a Canon S2 IS. She wanted me to learn how to use it and then explain it to her. I had no desire to take pictures AT ALL. But after learning how to use it I found myself asking if I could take a couple of shots. I became addicted.



Canon S2 IS (my fiance's)
Canon Rebel XTi
70-300mm IS USM


Manfrotto Tripod and head


Cokin ND Grad P 120 and 121
Promaster ND x 4
Promaster skylight filter

I am still learning many things about photography and I love to learn. If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it all.

    Hi there Leavenotrase, welcome to the fotocommunity! :-)
    The idea of fotocommunity is to give beginners, amateurs and professionals a place to share their passion for photography.
    You can view and comment the work of others, you can upload your own work to share it and get comments from other people around the world, and you can discuss or ask about anything you might want to know about our common interests.

    One of the admins, Dirk Hofmann, wrote a tutorial for new members, and I recommend you take a look at it. It helped me a lot when I joined:

    You can also get lots of information in our online-help. In there you can learn about the different features of fotocommunity.
    To get there click on this link:

    If there’s anything else you want to know, don't hesitate to ask me or any other member of the team if you have any questions!

    Well, see you out there :-)
