About Joshua Ives
I am a photographer and storyteller living in Clinton, New York. I was born and raised in Cooperstown and enlisted in the United States Navy in 1991 at the age of 20.
I served in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman (medic) and deployed throughout the world, stationed on warships, in hospitals and clinics, and with the United States Marine Corps. In 2012 I deployed to Afghanistan with Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) Farah where I served as both a medic and combat photographer.
I retired from the Navy in 2015 and now I'm a full-time student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University pursuing a bachelor's degree in photojournalism and minoring in anthropology.
My photographs can be found in a variety of online and print publications, including advertisements, military journals, government websites, and the online publications of Time and Mother Jones. I was selected as the Defense Video and Imagery Distribution System “Journalist of the Month” in 2013 for my photography in Afghanistan, and I'm a 2016 alumni of the Eddie Adams Workshop XXIX.
