Springfield-based Josh Mitchell's career started in advertising. During more than 25 years of working in commercial photography, with clients like Coors Light and the United States Postal Service, he continually worked on artistic side projects.
"I had always practiced my own interpretation of whatever I was assigned in corporate shooting and advertising," Mitchell says. "Through that working career doing many assignments for ad agencies, I began to collect and hold in the background a lot of my personal work which I felt was striking—at least worth the exploration of ‘could I do it?’"
Mitchell's work is collected and exhibited nationwide. You can view his work in exhibits around Springfield and at The Josh Mitchell Fine Art Gallery (1427 East Cherry).
