Joshua Hardin is a Colorado native and resident whose lifelong interest in photography began while using a Kodak 110 film camera to document his childhood family hiking trips around Colorado and the national parks of the Western United States. Joshua studied black and white darkroom photography in high school and later worked as a manager at a chain of professional one hour photo lab stores in the Loveland/Fort Collins region. While attending Colorado State University he was on the staff of CSU’s student newspaper “The Rocky Mountain Collegian.” After earning a bachelor’s degree in journalism he worked for a year as a reporter and photographer for “The BVI Beacon,” a newspaper in the British Virgin Islands.
Upon returning to Colorado, Joshua worked as the staff photographer for Regis University in Denver from 2004 to 2009 while earning a master’s degree in business administration there. Joshua’s work has been published by The Denver Post, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, The Colorado Press Association and many other publications. He owns Viewfinder Media, a company devoted to nature and travel photography, publishing and workshops for photographers and business leaders. Today, Josh still spends an extensive amount of time exploring and photographing his home state of Colorado and other Western landscapes.
