JOSH | WISEMAN  Visual Story Teller 🎬 Team @PolarPro Youtuber 📺 Currently: 📍Austin, TX SAM AND JANA PROPOSAL ⬇️

Well the time has come for me to make a very necessary announcement to all of you beautiful people!
I’m going to be taking a social hiatus for an undisclosed amount of time to finish this vulnerability series as well as some other things I’m going to be revealing when I come back.
In order to be completely transparent and raw with the visuals that I’m going to be constructing, I have to mentally put myself back into a very dark place. A place of anger, sadness, doubt, and helplessness.
Am I afraid?
But it’s something that needs to be done.
Thank you everyone for the support and encouragement with this new creative endeavor.
I love you all.
Don’t be afraid to show some love in my absence ❤️
Get ready for something special when I come back.
Stay Creative.

Sometimes you just gotta send it 🤘🏼
I’m really excited to make some announcements in the very near future and I’m so thankful and grateful for all of you who are making these seemingly crazy and far fetched ideas of mine a reality.
Thank you doesn’t even begin to express the amount of love and gratitude I have for all of you!
What do you think the announcements will be? Let me know below! —————————————————-

I’m a sucker for a fairytale ending 😭
Crazy that all these are frame exports from 3 different cameras that were all rolling at the same time!
Thanks for letting me be a part of your special moment and letting me help create it!
@sonyalpha A7sii with the 18-105 G was great so I didn’t have to be right on top of them.
@djiglobal Mavic Pro because it’s always nice to get some eyes in the sky.
@gopro hero 6 was a clutch incognito cam with a unique angle.
All of which were rocking the @polarpro quartzline #CinemaSeries filters 🤘🏼

There’s always been something special about water to me.
Being an Aquarius I feel I have a natural connection, deep in my soul, to water.
I learned to swim almost before I could walk and run.
I found a fascination with a substance that can shapeshift into anything to fit every crevasse, every glass, every void surrounding it’s very existence.
The beauty in a wave hugging the shore, saying goodbye and then coming back for more because it missed it is something that puts people to sleep, makes them fall in love, makes them feel...vulnerable.
However, where there’s beauty, there’s destruction.
Being held under water by a wave, omnipresent, seemingly no way out as you feel every breath being stripped from your body is a fear of many, and reluctantly experienced as we challenge Mother Nature and quickly realize, were in the deep end of a community pool on the first day of summer.
Water is an entity that helps me feel whole, at peace, and inspired.
And the more I think about it and delve deeper and deeper into this series that I will be releasing to all of you, I’ve realized something.
I. Am. Water. —————————————————-

Let me tell you a story.
For those of you who don’t know, this is Joe Dragich. He happens to be one of my best friends and honestly, blood couldn’t make us any closer. For years I have experienced first hand Joe’s emotional, physical, and mental turbulence pertaining to chasing his dreams of becoming a successful musician. I’ve heard it all.
“I want to quit”
“I think it’s time for me to hang it up”
“I think I’m gonna move back home”
“I don’t know if I can do this anymore josh”
“I honestly don’t even feel like living, I’m so depressed”
Heavy right?
Joe has been so transparent and vulnerable with me over the years and every time we have one of our catch-ups, I do my best to make sure he knows how fucking talented he is and that no matter how hard things may seem right now, it WILL get better.
I’ve always told him, even after breaking down multiple times on tour, playing in front of only the venue staff, and reaching dead end after dead end after dead end...”trust me dude. Trust me and believe me when I say that you have to trust the process, you’re right there, and I believe in you, we’re gonna look back on this when you’re doing the damn thing and laugh about how you thought you were actually gonna give this up.”
Well, that day has come and neither of us are laughing, were crying actually. The reality has set in and I can confidently say that you’ve fucking made it dude.
Blood couldn’t make us any closer, and I couldn’t be more proud of your persistence, dedication, and resilience in the 5 years I’ve known you.
The last show of your first major tour and I was lucky enough to capture it.
This is a milestone for both of us and a testament to what it means to really chase your dreams.
Seeing the look in your eyes knowing you’re living your best fucking life really shakes me up..
You motivate me to chase mine even harder and I thank you for that.
Love you Franz. #bevulnerable

As most of you know, @rickenroute and myself spent some time in Alaska and let me tell you, it was unlike anything I’ve experienced up until that point. The vast and diverse landscapes left us both in awe at every turn and every path we took.
The breathtaking photos and videos we captured during our adventures wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of the fellas over at #UnpluggedAdventures! Without their help we wouldn’t have been able to access some of the areas. Special thanks to @taylorbrown4939 and @jkquartercircle for hooking it up with this monster @jeep for the week!
Couldn’t have done it without y’all! #ad

The things that I felt,
The love that I shared,
You left me standing here,
As if you never even cared.

Where the land meets the sky, that is where you will find me, but only when you are ready, not a second sooner.

Great things never came from comfort zones.
Being vulnerable is also a part of being uncomfortable!
I was fortunate enough to speak on @connerwanders podcast over at @therealnessmedia and we cover just that, as well as love, loss, death, what drives my creative process and how I express myself through my craft!
Let me know what y’all think! 📸: @rickenroute —————————————————-
