Your Bio

Welcome! I'm Nick. I recently arrived here in Colorado after spending 6 years in North Carolina earning my PhD in Cancer Biology. When I'm not in the lab, chances are I have a camera in my hand. I specialize in photographing transportation and travel subjects as well as concerts, and I spend a lot of time trying to capture the amazingly diverse landscapes of the places I live. My photos have won numerous awards throughout the southeast, and I've authored quite a few articles for various regional and national railroading magazines.

Many of my images are available as prints or for commercial use for your advertising or editorial needs. I am also available for hire for select editorial and commercial projects. Please contact me for prices and availability and I'll do my best to get back to you right away!
