Lost Boy Saint finds passion in photography

Twenty-three -year-old Joash Porte is the owner of Lost Boy Saint, his very own one-year-old photography company.

It is a big achievement for the young man, who confesses that he didn’t know much about the art of photography earlier on.

The former student of The Lester Vaughan Secondary School and the Barbados Community College (BCC), where he studied Mass Communications, realised he wanted to take his knowledge of media a bit further and decided to pursue a career in photography.

“It was at BCC that I got my first experience learning about a camera and how it worked. I knew photography was something I always had an interest in. I would look at photography over the years especially when I was a child. Recently it started to become a career interest for me.

“I still remember the day I got my first camera; I handled it with so much care, I could not wait to use it. It was a Nikon D7000 that I had purchased on Bajan Marketplace,” he said.

Porte, commonly referred to as ‘lostboysaint’ said he offers lifestyle and portrait photography and has taken images of cultural practitioners such as Brutal Crankstar and may be seen at many popular events with his Nikon Z5 camera in hand. He singled out his most memorable photoshoot as one he dubbed ‘Life in the Tropics’.

“I think if I had to define my photography, I would say that it is lifestyle portraits captured in living colour. I have taken a lot of photographs of local entertainers and establishments over the past year. If I had to single out a moment that I would cherish it would have to be my Life in the Tropics photoshoot. That experience was life changing being backstage meeting some of my favourite local artistes.  This experience showed me how much further I can go as a photographer and what it would take for me to reach the pinnacle of success,” he said.

Porte readily admits that in the beginning he did not know what he was doing. Now he is proud of his progress and embraces how far he has come with lots of practice and genuine dedication. 

What is one thing every photographer should have in their camera bag?

“An off-camera flash,” he says without hesitation.

“I think having an off-camera flash is a must have for any photographer regardless of what camera you are using. It comes in handy even when shooting with a good amount of natural lighting,” he said.
