Hello! I am Joshua McDonald, the founder & Photographer of ROGUE Film Co. Recently I was asked by, Story On  to write an excerpt about, What I love about what I do, and here was my response!

What I love about about my passion, job, career choice and business?
The people… Sure, I’m definitely an artist, and yes when I snap a photo at the right moment, it’s heaven. But, a photo isn’t a memory without the people in it. And without the story attached to that moment, it’s nothing. Imagine, with one picture, no words, you can tell an entire story. For someone as long winded as I can be, it’s a relief to be able to share this part of me. People are what drive me, knowing what makes them excited, happy, joyful, and even sad. These are all pieces of my job. That’s the only way I know how to get the story on the photograph. By getting to know people.

I am an adventurer, a traveler, an artist, a personality, and a photographer of awesomeness. Everything I do in this life can be characterized by one word, "Fun". I LOVE having fun, I love fun people, activities, ideas, stories etc... Nothing beats it. That's why I chose to be a photographer, I can take someones memories, freeze it for eternity, and let them relive those moments that are so dear to them. 

When I'm not photographing I can often be found out and about, decorating the house (yes, I love decorating), working outside, making the perfect Cuban Sandwich, or spending time with loved ones. I mainly grew up in Fort Collins (FoCo), Colorado and if you haven't been there, it's a must. Bouldering & Guitar were my first loves, there wasn't anything that felt better than facing a giant rock wall and climbing to the top. In fact, that's been the metaphor of my life. My goal has always been to get to the top of anything I do. 

As far as how I am with clients. I'm easy going, I do my best to create a stress free environment, and to create fun! A natural smile is the only kind of smile I ever want in a photograph... There is plenty more I could tell you about myself; however, if you like what you see, let's get together for a consultation!
