Joshua Tann is a fine art photographer residing in California. He loves creating images from his surroundings, particularly when he travels. He believes that photography is the best medium for his artistic work because it gives him the most creative freedom. Most of his photographic images are influenced by his love of art and architecture, something that was nurtured throughout his youth and adulthood, despite his profession as a psychotherapist. 

​His creative process starts with an inspiration and involves many factors in addition to the aesthetics, such as the relationships between lighting and structures or angles and environment. From here he would find the essence, or "soul" of the photograph, usually after many shots of the same image, with different factors applied. A final photograph would emerge from this process as the expression of his creative interpretation of that image with the hope of inspiring the viewing public. 

He received a certificate in Professional Photography from the New York Institute of Photography and is a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America). He also received a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University as his formal education.

Mr. Tann participated in numerous curated local and international group and solo exhibitions. He was also selected in several international photography competitions. He is especially excited about exhibiting his artwork at the group exhibits in Budapest and the International Art Fair, Carrousel du Louvre, Paris, sponsored by PAKS Gallery. His work has been acquired by art collectors in United States, Mexico, United Kingdom and Canada.
