Hello! My name is Joshua Miller and I am a photojournalism student at San Francisco State University and a former Haybaler at San Benito High School. While attending SBHS, I held the position of chief photographer, as well as the photo editor of the 2014 yearbook staff. After graduation, I transferred to Long Beach City College to continue my journalism education. While attending LBCC, I held numerous positions on the college newspaper staff such as editor-in-chief, design editor, photo editor and photographer. When I am not taking pictures, you can usually find me digging through crates of vinyl records in Santa Cruz or collecting antique cameras to restore and use. I have worked for over 8 years professionally as a freelance photojournalist with various media outlets around the state. I am very proud to be able to work with BenitoLink's news team to provide eye-catching photos to the people of San Benito County.
