I am a fine art photographer specializing in landscape, nature and night photography. While my early photographic inspiration was the wide-open vistas of the American West, I now find my inspiration in Maine's stunning mountain and coastal landscapes as well as in the night sky. I live in midcoast Maine with my amazing wife and daughter.
Besides pursuing fine art photography, I also presently work as a professional printer (Nickelson Editions), providing custom fine art printing, scanning, and consulting for numerous artists across Maine and beyond.
Before committing myself full-time to photography and printing, I pursued careers in engineering and law, first acquiring a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Texas and working as a flight controller for the Shuttle program at NASA's Johnson Space Center, and later acquiring a J.D. from Harvard Law School and working as an intellectual property attorney.
