About Josh Stansfield

Colonial Beach, VA

I started my photography journey in 2017 when a friend lent me an old camera one night around a bonfire in my backyard. I was fascinated with long exposures…how you could open up the shutter of the camera for several seconds and capture the movement of light in a way the human eye cannot perceive. The sparks crackled off the embers and were transformed into bright orange light trails against the backdrop of the midnight sky. I fell in love with photography that night and began to immerse myself deeply into this new world.

My goal is to capture the beauty in front of me and bring to the image my experience in that moment. Sometimes I have a specific vision for a photograph, but often it is the result of a spontaneous event – being in the right place at the right time. These fleeting moments are exhilarating and a source of inspiration to go outside, explore new places, and hopefully create something unique and interesting.
