Born and raised in West Texas, Josh Hedges found his passion for photography early in life. He combined his love for sports and photography in 1999 when he began working with the Ultimate Fighting Championship – a relationship that’s still going strong today, twelve years later. In 2010, Josh became a contributor for Getty Images, which has allowed him to expand his work to other sports and bring his work to a whole new audience.
Over the course of his career, Josh has traveled the world, working in nine countries on five different continents. He enjoys traveling to and working in new locations as often as possible.
Josh’s photos have been featured in countless publications around the world, including Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine, USA Today, Time Magazine, The New York Times, and The LA Times.
While not limited to any specific sport or discipline, Josh has become most known for his work within the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
In his downtime, Josh enjoys spending time with his wife Jody and their twins, Jameson and Jacoby, welcomed in April 2011.
