Joshua Mayes is a New York City based director and director of photography with 20 years of experience in film and television.

Josh’s love of imagery and storytelling began when he was a kid fascinated by reruns of The Twilight Zone.  After studying film and television at Boston University, he started working as a camera operator on The Real World.

Josh was trained to shoot in a single camera vérité fashion and he was hooked.  Throughout his career, Josh has collaborated on every level of production from conception to execution.  He’s worked with some of the highest profile names in television, film and politics, and in diverse environments from large multi-national production companies to small non-profits.   

Josh is highly sought after for his intuitive ability to understand and connect with story, his artistry and vision, the passion he brings to every project and his experience leading creative teams.
