Hello, I’m J.K.Winders!

J.K. stands for Joshua Kelly. I am a portrait, adventure, and documentary photographer. I have been taking photographs and growing in this craft since 2012. The blending of traditional lifestyle photography with the wonderment and joy of adventure, accompanied by rich tones and moody vibes, are what make up the unique aesthetic of my work. In all things, my aim is to explore and create to inspire. 

I was born and raised in the great state of Georgia; a red head in a family of brunettes. Since then, I have coexisted in the bustling city of Los Angeles, California, the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and several places in between. As my horizons have expanded over the past several years, so have my portfolio and skill sets. I travel a great deal and consider myself a collector of experiences.

In addition to photography, I am also an avid writer, musician, and overall artisan. I am enamored by the creative process and the business of creating something artistic for the purpose of saying something that has never been said before. I enjoy doing work that challenges me and my abilities, and takes me to places I’ve never been and allows me to see things I've never seen. I constantly draw inspiration from old, vintage styles and techniques to discover new places to take my art and creativity. At my very core, I'm just a young buck on a journey, unceasingly refining and establishing myself as an artist, an adventurer, and a young man. I am always eager and excited to connect, create, and explore.

Joshua & Barnabas

For the longest time, It was hard to really say what my home base was. Now I can say that My current home base is a 2015 Thor Majestic RV. His name is Barnabas after the apostle under Paul from the New Testament. We bounce from place to place chasing and capturing stories all along the way. if you want to connect at one of our DESTINATIONS, or somewhere between where we are and where we’re going, feel free to reach out on my contact page for my travel schedule.
