The human element is one of extreme complexity. Beauty and tragedy culminate to create moments that words can only attempt to capture.

Seeking these fragile moments have defined Joshua Howard’s career as a visual storyteller and have taken him around the world. He has lived with the Pech Indians on an archaeological expedition into the jungles of Honduras, has taught filmmaking students how to shoot in the outback of Australia and is regularly diving caves and historical wrecks around the planet.

Joshua wears a lot of different hats. Literally and figuratively. Contact him for any of your wildest film and photo needs:

Along with being an experienced tech and cave diver, Joshua is also a professional scuba instructor. He is as comfortable shooting underwater as he is on dry land. Any body of water can be turned into an underwater studio for your next shoot. Just ask his film students… he developed and taught an underwater cinematography curriculum at Asbury University in Wilmore, KY.
