About Me

Joshua Gillum Senior Portrait Photographer

Joshua in San Diego, shooting a Friend’s Wedding in October of 2011

Thank you for stopping by J Gillum Photography.

I have had a camera in my hands, off and on now, for over 32 years. What was once just a hobby turned into my profession 10 years ago and I have never looked back.

I have a passion for capturing photos that are both timeless and unique. I am constantly studying and looking for something new to try. Through this, I am able to achieve my vision and bring forth photographs that are fresh, bold and timeless. I don’t adhere to the “cookie cutter standards” of many of my peers. I like to get to know my clients and really put their life and their attitude into their portraits. You can go anywhere to get a picture of yourself. I strive to capture a photograph that is you.

On the rare occasion that you don’t find my face behind the viewfinder, you might see me on my bicycle or going for a drive. I love the outdoors, just point me towards the campground or the water and I will be happy. I am also an avid Volkswagen enthusiast, spending much of my “free time” tinkering with my other love, my 1984 Rabbit GTI.

So that about sums it up for me. Take a look around, drop me a note or give me a call. We can sit down and chat for a bit. And when we are done with that, we can go make something for you to hang on your wall and treasure for the rest of your life.

Thanks again,
-Josh
