Born in Spokane, Washington, Josh developed an early interest in filmmaking. He made his first film when he was still in middle school. Clinging tightly to his dreams of being a filmmaker, Josh studied Arts in Feature Films at Brooks Institute of Photography. Since then he has gained experience in his field by working on: feature films, short films, commercials and more. He has won multiple awards for his work as an editor and cinematographer.
Josh currently holds both a Sport Pilot license (real airplanes) and the new Remote Pilot Certificate (Part 107 rules) that both allow him to legally operator drones within the national airspace.
Throughout his 14 years in the film/photography industry, Josh found a particular niche that he especially excelled at; having always loved robotics and remote controlled (R/C) cars and planes, Josh found a way to blend his two passions and through hard work and determination Birds Eye Productions was born. Josh’s enthusiasm for film, photography and flying combined with his creative energy, enthusiasm and passion has enabled him to bring stunningly designed aerial shots and creative ideas to each and every one of BEP’s projects.
The film and aerial photography business is constantly changing and always on the cutting edge; Josh is at the forefront of this movement. He has manipulated or invented many pieces of flight and film equipment to make his shots smoother and more dynamic and is constantly training and gathering new equipment.
