Meet Highland Park Photographer: Joshua Caine

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joshua Caine.

Joshua, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Long story short, I sorta fell into photography. Growing up I thought I wanted to be a musician. I played drums and toured in a number of bands. Realizing I didn’t have a natural talent for music I continued to tour with bands managing them and shooting photos all across the states as well as over a dozen countries in Europe. I found my place behind the lens and it’s opened a ton of incredible opportunities. Fast forward to starting a business and once again stumbling into something new I ended up doing set stills for network tv shows, I continued to travel for over half a decade doing that. Which leads me to the present. Setting down and calling Los Angeles home I continue to shoot and await the next adventure life will bring me.

Has it been a smooth road?
My journey so far has been unbelievably smooth. Don’t get me wrong there will always be challenges and struggles, but that’s what makes you grow and mature in your work as well as life. I dare to say that all of the opportunities I’ve been presented with and blessed to be apart of have really just landed in my lap. I try to be open to new experiences and look at every opportunity to learn and expand some part of my life, whether it be creatively shooting or just making new friends. Basically, I say yes to everything.

Do you feel luck has played a role in your life?
Well… if there is such thing as luck, then I think you make your own. Cliche’ I know. But being positive, saying yes to trying new things and staying open to new ideas is really the keys to being successful in not only your career but also in life.

Is there a quality or characteristic that has played an outsized role in your success?
Every form of art is a copy in a way. That’s a hard pill to swallow, however, it’s your influences that make you unique… whether that be music, other photographers, fashion, architecture, etc. You’re stealing from what you like, but knowing what you like about them makes you… well you. BTW success is a state of mind.

Tell us about your favorite and least favorites things about our city.
I’ve recently fallen in love with a girl who lives downtown. That being said I’ve been spending a ton. No, wait all my time downtown. And I have to say I love it. I love the sounds, the food options, the people watching, the juxtaposition of suites and well the skid row inhabitants. Los Angeles is very diverse and it depends on what color glasses you put on for that day. It’s not always rose or yellow tinted, but I try my best to wear those.

    Love his photography style. Reminds me of a past time in history. His work is brilliantly simple. I have worked with him before and not only is he talented but is humble and just a awesome guy. He just has good taste! He always had a band or song to introduce to me that were undiscovered and a year or two later this band or song would be huge.
