Josiah Beck is a photographer hailing from Baton Rouge, LA. He discovered his love of photography early in high school, and graduated from Baylor University in 2017 with a BFA in Photography. He has worked as both a fine art photographer and a photojournalist. Although he has experience in 35mm film, (black and white), he primarily works with digital photography and editing. He enjoys shooting many different subjects, such as portraits, landscapes, events, and most recently constructed still lifes heavily influenced by journalistic war photography. For these images, he builds maquettes out of simple materials replicating war photos, such as those by Robert Capa, and shoots them to replicate the original images and give an understanding to war history and photography.
Josiah’s photographic philosophy revolves around capturing the quiet, simple, and beautiful moments. His landscapes show the beauty of the world and strive to awaken an appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us, especially in places where it might not be so obvious, and his portraits often take on a whimsical, fun nature while still revealing the essence of a person. Josiah also appreciates the camera’s ability to record true events, both significant as well as the seemingly unimportant. This can be seen in his journalistic works, which cover everything from sporting events to church picnics. He is a very versatile photographer and loves to continue shooting all manner of subjects and events!
