Why just 80%?

100% Josh would be over the legal limit. This is the maximum amount allowed by law.

My Story

My name is Josh. I grew up in San Diego and have roamed around a bit in my adult life- Chicago, Raleigh, Seattle, Chicago (again), Portland OR, and now I’m back in San Diego. My wife Melissa and I run a photography business specializing in weddings and portraiture, but for me photography doesn’t stop there. It’s been a huge part of my life for the past 7 years.  I was raised by a single mom, have no siblings, and never had a big family growing up.  My dad had been estranged from me for many years, and in 2012 I found out he had passed away in 2009.  So his side of the family is totally unknown to me.  I grew up loving Star Wars, G.I. Joe, and Miami Vice.  I’m pretty much into any lame 80s action movie that took itself too seriously, and dabbled a bit in comic books.  It’s been weird that everything I got made fun of for liking as a kid is now in vogue.  I’m not very political but generally identify as a democrat and I’m pretty openminded.  I don’t discount anyone’s religious beliefs but I generally think humanity is far too dumb to comprehend the teachings of omnipotent beings.

The Photos and Graphics on 80%

Any photo that is non-attributed on this blog or that has the 80% stamp on it was taken by me. I’m not a big fan of watermarks, and started this blog off at first using them, and then decided against it.  I own the copyright to the images on this blog and you need my permission to use them.  Anything else posted here I will attempt to credit whenever possible.
