Joseph Rossbach Photography



Hello, I am a full time photographer based out of Southern California although my Assignments and workshop take me all over the country and internationally. I have been leading photo tours/workshops and publishing my photography for over 15 years. My particular interest at the time is the deserts of the southwestern United states and the Eastern Sierra Mountains of California. When not leading tours or working on assignments, you can find me exploring some well known and many Lesser known areas of the Colorado Plateau and the Mojave Desert regions of the Southwest.



Singh Ray Filters — The best filters on the market! I have used Singh Ray filters on many of my best selling images over the years.

Tokina Lenses — Great glass for landscape photography. I currently use the Tokina 70-200mm for many of my intimate landscape images.

Nikon — I have been using Nikon cameras and lenses since I started out 20+ years ago. In my opinion, Nikon makes the best cameras and lenses in the industry. I have used the system for every image in my portfolio and published works.



I launched my photography career at the ripe age of 19, over 21 years ago now, working at first as a freelance sports and events photographer in the Mid Atlantic while mastering my passion for the craft of landscape and nature photography with every free moment of time I had. Just before my son was born, I decided to take a leap of faith, and become a full time pro landscape photographer. Over the first three years I managed to co-write two books on Landscape Photography, get published in some of the worlds leading magazines, books and calendars. In 2006, I launched Adventures in Light Photography Workshop and have been educating and inspiring thousands of photographers since. I now live and do much of my photography in the Southwest. I am always looking to expand my appreciation of the natural world and find new and exciting locations in the West and beyond. Thank you for visiting and being a part of my journey as a photographer, artist and explorer. Best of light…
