Joshua Stedman has been labeled “Stevie Wonder meets Seal with the voice of Sting.” I also know him as my Ex. We remained good friends and this is my favorite photograph of him. This image illustrates the magnetic burst of energy you feel when you are around Josh. We were at a friend’s apartment and we thought it would be fun to do a test shoot. Josh is a musician and promotional photographs are so important to helping an artiste connect with his audience. My goal as a portrait photographer is to capture the inner aura and character of a person, not just his outer shell – and this photograph emanates such positivity and captures the essence of Josh – generous, kind and just full of light.
