February 10, 2016 - Former Port Jervis Raider Josh Conklin has taken his love of sports to a new and exciting level. Conklin, PJHS Class of 2015, is a freelance photographer, concentrating on area scholastic sports.
His photo taking skill has received notice from area newspapers, including the Times Herald Record. Conklin has had some of his best shots land in the paper, including some on the back cover, a highlight for any sports picture taker.
