Joshua Taylor (b. 1991) is a Richmond, Virginia based self-taught photographer. His work emerges at the intersection of conventional photography and the virtual world. Since 2011, Joshua's aim has been to illuminate the beauty of human imagination by bridging photography with the environments of video games.
Over the years, he has had the opportunity to work with companies such as McCann London, CRAFT London, PhotoWorld China, Polka, and Microsoft Xbox to achieve imagery suited for their endeavors. With this experience, he is effective at communicating with producers, artists, and public relations personnel to ensure all needs are met and brief is fulfilled with quick turn around times.
Joshua’s virtual photography (or in-game photography) is represented through Josh Taylor Creative and previous names such as //NOTRL and JTGP.
He is currently available for assignment or collaboration worldwide. Joshua works with people and brands to tell powerful stories and communicate effective messaging through virtual imagery. You can find a tearsheet here.
