I keep www.joshproberts.com
more up-to-date, and it has more pictures, than my MM site.
See some of my portraiture, currently hanging in the ArtiCulture gallery
-- in Minneapolis at 2613 Franklin Avenue East). I'm interested in other venues to show different aspects of my work as well -- from G to R rated and beyond. Contact me if you're interested in having my work at your gallery/coffee shop/restaurant, fertility clinic, alternative health provider, salon, spa, ... or if you'd like to be in some of those wall hangings.
Former STAFF photographer and writer for LivGREEN
magazine, and photography columist for Minnesota Bride
magazine. Currently I shoot freelance for Edible Twin Cities, Fender Bender, Star Tribune, and other local and national publications.
My photography tends to be more artistic or documentary than Maxim-slick. I look for the aesthetics of what's in a picture (and maybe help it along a bit). I have portable studio equipment, and I also love to shoot using ambient light.
I'm very interested in exploring how the interaction between light and shadow affects the mood and message of an image.
I do mostly paid work -- models' and actors' headshots and portfolio development, weddings and events, editorial and annual reports, product shots, images for businesses, and photoassisting. ("Paid" includes barter work -- I've traded my photography for auto repair, studio lighting, a catered party, massage therapy, handmade clothing, computer repair, magazine advertising, carpet cleaning, house painting, ... and of course, modeling.)
I do a limited amount of TF* work to help select models and actors with their ports. You don't have to be super-experienced, 18 or gorgeous -- but it helps if you have an open mind, a shared vision, and/or some creative ideas of your own.
Editors: I'm a skilled journalist -- for national and local magazines, newspapers, trades, and electronic pubs. Contact me just for photos or for a complete editorial/photo package.
