About your instructor

 

My Names Joshua Snow, I’m a full time artist, and educator based in Moab Utah but spend most of my time traveling in my hand built travel van with my better half, and two adventurous pups Luna and Kiva. Mountains, seas, forest and streams, deserts and canyons are where you'll find me in search of my next image. An image that captures the experience of its capture, conceived by the landscape and brought to life by imagination. Photography to me is a medium for speaking all of the words I just dont know how to say.

Creating is the most important thing in my life, without the ability to pour myself into an image I might just explode. My imagery is pure emotion, and I want you to feel that when you view it. As if you were standing right by my side. Captivated, awed and inspired, feeling every drop of misty rain, the soft breeze on your face, the warmth of the rising sun, feel my art, my freedom.

Photography has changed me, moulded me into the person I am today, it has taught me patience, given me wisdom, and allowed me to express myself in a way that I never have before and I can’t imagine being or doing anything else! When I was a kid all I wanted to do was be outside with the bugs and animals exploring, not studying to be an engineer, or a doctor, or astronaut, but as I grew older I fell into the rat race of building a career, working 50 hours a week and eventually became an engineer. working and going to school, and ended up severely and dangerously overweight. Reconnecting with nature and picking up a camera saved my life and helped me get into shape enough to do things I never could've done before.

I’m healthier now and over the course of the last 6 years have managed to break away from traditional career path and have enjoyed helping cultivate creativity and foster imagination in so many students.

If you have worked with me in the past you'll know that these workshops are immensely fun, exhausting and full of invaluable information, but you also know that I am a perfectionist and as such am always striving to improve the value of the experience. In the last two years I think that I have curated a great workshop experience, and I hope you'll enjoy your time with us on this one! In 2019 nearly half of my students were returning alumni from previous group and private workshops. Building a bond and relationship with students is a side effect I never knew would be so important to me!

 

"There are so many critics in this world that will tell you how, why, where, and when to create, and I say that we should all create as we see fit, and create images that tell stories not just about nature but about ourselves. I use my imagery to convey my feelings when words just aren't enough" 

"My favorite thing about landscape photography might not be what you think, because Its not the photography part. My time in nature is everything, my oasis, my quiet place, and the place where I get to be myself most. The second half of this is the post processing, where I also get to express myself in a different way, a way to let my imagination sprawl and grow. I want to view my images later in life, or the viewer to view the images and be transported to the experience, the leaves rustling, wind howling, and the misty air touching your face. It's freedom."
