My interest in photography began in the late seventies. Entering and winning juried competitions continues to spark my imagination.
about 20years. I started photographs at 23years old.it's later than others,I think.
Then I was university student I had learned history about Europe and I had been there.I forgot my study and saw many photographs and magazines.after this I started photographs by myself and worked at photo sudio in magazine publish company at TOKYO.
8 years. I started as a photographer assistant in Japan for 2 years.
In 1988, as a young man, barely 19 years old, with his trained, natural talent, and his tools in hand — cameras, lenses, paints, brushes, and his dreams and ambitions — Joshua Roy left his little hometown and then Quebec City for a bigger pond, Canada’s largest metropolis, Toronto. There, he polished his English, made himself a business card, and significantly stepped up what would become a happening, decade-long career in commercial photography. “I didn't begin seriously pursuing art photography until got to Toronto; it was 1999 when began to paint.”
I started taking photographs as a teenager in the 1950's. I was allowed to use the family camera which I shared with my uncle and with my grandfather. I also joined MADOME, the Hungarian photographers association. I attended their course and read books about photography.
Used to play around abit 5-6 years back but it is only recently i decide to try photography on a more serious note.
I have been in the commercial photography business for about 15 years. It was something I accidentally stumbled upon while pursuing another career and I switched gears and decided to be formally educated and the rest is history.
Over twenty years, I started in High School, photographing friends at sporting events.
I was trained on the job while working for the Eunice News in Eunice, LA in 1977.
I always was admired by photography since childhood, and began as soon as I could get necessary conditions. It happend only in 1998-2000. I have rented small flat with spacious room, bought some light, camera, and found models.
As a graphic designer, I bought a camera to develop my own image library rather than using the same stock photos as everyone else. One day when I was walking at Spanish Banks, in English Bay (Vancouver), during low tide a bald eagle flew right by me. I mean, less that five feet away. I was stunned, and vowed to always bring my camera when walking there.
The very first time out I got some really spectacular, close up shots at a sand bar that forms on the farthest reaches of Spanish Banks, when the tide is lowest. It turns out to be a favourite eagle (and heron, and seal) fishing ground.
I have been taking pictures as a hobby since I was in college; however I did not pursue photojournalism until I was living in Beijing. I received my very first photo assignment from an expat ‘zine, That’s Beijing (now The Beijinger), to capture a night in Beijing (“The Beijing Bender”). That landed me on the cover of their August 2005 issue, and opened up a lot of doors for me with other English-language publications around China.
I have been involved with photography most of my life but turned professional in 1993. The basic motivation in my turning professional was the shooting of a photo-documentarybook "Dreads" that was published by Artison/Workman in 1997.Dreads is now going into its 7th printing internationally
