“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.”
― Lao Tzu

One of my favorite quotes from Lao Tzu sums up how I feel about Josh Isaacs photography; his view of the world is conjured in his soul and sent out to the universe.

– Ophelia Chong,

“Josh’s photography takes us back to our roots–pure, elemental, and of the earth. He allows us to see timeless visions through a modern lens. And he’s not afraid to get personal. This is why I chose to collaborate with him on our book Falling Fire–because we share a love of California and respect our environment above all else.”

Keith Reams, Writer – Los Angeles, CA

“Working with Josh for a feature story in Robb Report magazine on the America’s Cup sailing races was an absolute pleasure. Josh accompanied me on a press boat on the San Francisco Bay to take photos of the race boats in action. He handled himself professionally and was sociable with the other press members and America’s Cup personnel. He took countless incredible photos, with which the art director at Robb Report was very pleased. Josh was easy to work with and always responded quickly during every step of the magazine production process. This, in addition to his talent as a photographer, resulted in a number of his photos being published with the feature. I very much look forward to working with Josh on future projects.”

Bailey S. Barnard, Associate Editor – Robb Report

“Josh thank you so much for taking our family photos! You were professional and organized and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you for scouting out different locations so our pictures could be perfect. We loved your vision for each photo and they turned out great. You were a joy to work with and we can’t wait to work with you again!”

Maggie & Kevin Rinow – Walnut Creek, CA

“We hired Josh for a candid engagement photo shoot, and he truly impressed us! Just as his online portfolio demonstrates, his final pictures are stunning and truly capture the moment. What really makes Josh’s work exemplary, however, is his calm manner and ability to put people at ease. Josh helped us select the perfect locations and had us laughing and having fun in no time, making the entire experience an event that we’ll remember fondly.”
