While Josh is an industrial engineer by education, he has been an entrepreneur and photographer for most of his life.

Brian picked up a camera in 2016 to capture the journey of his growing family. He loved it so much, he started looking for any creative way to capture people, scenes, landscapes, candid moments, and life in general. As a member of the Sherpa Media team, Brian brings a creative and technical eye to real estate photography.

When he’s not shooting houses, you can find Brian kayaking, playing disc golf, and hanging out with his family.
