Every person has a story to tell of how they capture the magic they see before them with their photography. We are celebrating this with our Instagram PixStorytellers. Each week, a new photographer will join us on Instagram sharing their ideas, tips, and tricks for getting the best shot. This week we introduce you to Joshua Snow also known as j.snow_photo on Instagram who specializes in fine art landscapes and advanced night photography.
 

How did you start in photography?

I got into photography while on a huge weight loss journey, I was over 400lbs and needed a change. Since I lived in the finger lakes of New York there was no end to the waterfalls we could hike. My girlfriend was taking a photography class during her last semester of college and I thought that if I learned too it would be a great way to bond!

How did you find your photography groove?

Fast forward to a little over a year ago and I was just starting to feel like I was hitting my groove, finding my own style and seeing things more clearly. It required a lot of reflection to stop being influenced and desensitized by what I was seeing all day, every day on social media.

What’s in your camera bag – j.snow_photo?

Nowadays I’m shooting with a Nikon D850, with a D810 backup, the Nikon 14-24, 24-70, and 70-300 Vr. I’m a Nisi filter ambassador so I carry an array of Nisi glass filters, really right stuff gear and Fstop bags.

Advice for others starting out?

Be creative and be unique. There’s a trend out there now where people just seem to be following each other around, standing in the same places, taking the same photos and using the same processing. Breakaway! Be different!
