Nick picked up his first camera while serving in the US Navy in San Diego, California. Inspired by the vistas of Grand Canyon National Park, Nick dedicated the rest of his life to bringing the beauty of life to those too busy to enjoy it for themselves. Having a natural competency for mechanics and technology, Nick quickly taught himself manual photography and began selling his work early on. He eventually discovered a new way to achieve his mission, by teaching others to see and share life’s beauty. Through 2012 and 2013, Nick taught photography classes as well as destination landscape photography workshops, around the Southwest. Wanting to continue expanding his own skills, he returned to school to earn two degrees in photography. Shortly after moving to Decorah in early 2014, to be with his (now) wife, Nick began a new branch of his business focused on weddings and portraiture.
