This is who I am

Still Looking

I have always been a photographer, even before I knew it. (Well, maybe I was always an artist and the camera was the pair of glasses that helped me see the world the way I pictured it in my mind.) Whether I am taking photos, singing, writing poetry, or attempting to play the guitar, all of that is who I am as a person. I don’t try to be someone else, I only know how to be me and I will always find a way to express myself.

Over the past several months I have finally started to realize how important photography is to me in my life.  I love it so much that I want to share what I know with others so that they can create beautiful memories to show their friends, families, children, grand-children, etc. I love it so much that I am incredibly broke because I am trying to make it a full-time job (and I cringe when I realize that it is probably not a realistic endeavor at the moment).  I want to be inspired, creative, and hopeful all at the same time.

Will I be able to do all of this? I think so, but I know that I’m not at my best quite yet. Tell a little kid to draw a picture and they basically are opening up a door to their little world. Sometimes I feel like I’m that little kid, and my photos are telling a story about my life … and right now my life is like a Lensbaby at f/2.8.

But that won’t stop me … I won’t slow down now & I’m only picking up speed. Come along for the ride if you like, but hold on tight!  And don’t even think about getting in my way.

  1. I absolutely think you can do it Nicole. I meet lots of people who want to make it as a pro. 1 in 1000 impress me. You’re the 1! Heck, we all love you :)

  2. Nicole, with hard work and perseverance you can accomplish anything. There is no doubt in my mind that if you keep on doing all that you are and try some new things, you will be overwhelmed with success.

  3. Nicole,

    You are, with out a doubt, one of the most inspiring photographers I’ve ever come across. Aside from your great photos, your can-do attitude, and creativity (esp. w/ your time-lapse projects) never cease to impress me!!! Keep up the great work!!

  4. Hi Nicole – Just saw the video over at Weekly Photo Tips blog – good stuff – your putting out fantastic images – what type of releases are you using for the stock images? You have inspired me to get off my butt and get my work out there.

  5. Great result!
    I love the dynamic of the frame. The yellow coat adds to the feeling of being sucked into the photo.
    Splendid result!
