Josh McDarris is an independent camera op, editor and motion graphics designer with production companies throughout the US.

Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Josh discovered his love for the graphic arts and storytelling at a very early age. He began seriously developing his graphic arts and production skills in high school while under the guidance of now Emmy® award winner Chris “Ace” Gates. Josh went on to study graphic design but quickly changed his career path to pursue film and video production. He began working with small production companies in the area and was employed as a multimedia specialist for nearly three years before he and his wife moved to Florida’s Treasure Coast. They are currently looking for a new place to settle down and have their eye on the western US.
