Creative Director/Photographer Josh Thornton’s journey with photography began just a few years ago. After 10 years of freelance graphic design, he found the camera was the tool he needed to truly speak as an artist. Growing up he was heavily influenced by music, art, graphics and film. Today, he is the founder of A Photography Thing which is a brand that inspires creatives to curate their creative-voices. It’s a platform Josh uses to combine his early influences with his love for helping people.
“I’ve always loved artists who have a distinct style. Like when you see, or hear, or experience their work…you KNOW it has their signature on it. I love how an artist can experience life and filter that experience trough whatever muse they feel is right. Photography, film, music and design are my muses.”
Josh also spent 12 years as a personal trainer. He attributes his love for teaching and inspiring people to that experience. This was his first creative outlet that led him into his passion in life. Connecting with people and inspiring them to live fully and loudly is what drives Josh. A Photography Thing is the story of a creative; any creative who lives the artist-lifestyle and wouldn’t want to live it any other way. It’s for creatives at any point on their journeys of self-discovery through their work.
