Joshua Hoffine is the father of modern Horror photography.

Hoffine began making Horror photographs in 2003. His work exploded on the internet in 2008 when he released a series of images exploring the nature of childhood fears. He soon developed a cult following for his meticulously staged photographic works and brazen subject matter. His widely published work inspired other photographers and photography students to stage their own Horror themed photo shoots, inciting a new subgenre in photography.

Hoffine stages his photo shoots like small movies, with sets, costumes, elaborate props, fog machines, and SPFX make-up. Everything is acted out live in front of the camera.

His photographs have been featured in the Horror publications Rue Morgue, Fangoria, Horror Hound, Scream UK, Virus, and Famous Monsters of Filmland, and the Art publications Lamono, Exit, and LoDown Magazine. His commercial clients include AMC Theaters, Sony, Universal Studios, and The National Opera of Paris.
