Nick Rasmussen is a 23 year old professional photographer living in the Indianapolis area. His passion for photography came from traveling at a young age, and believes that capturing a moment is one of the most powerful and rewarding careers a person can have. Through personal studies, travels, art residencies, and studying photography during his college years, Nick has acquired a broad spectrum of experience in many types of photography. His passion is to highlight each person and space that he photographs in hopes of sparking emotion in those who hire him and view his work.
My job allows me to express myself in ways I find inexpressible otherwise. The ability to capture a moment in time is incomparable to anything I have experienced in my life. The fact that I get to do this both for myself AND for others is what keeps me pursuing this career in photography. After all, it's one thing to see something, to experience it firsthand; it's another thing to be able to see and capture these memories at the same time.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many shoots, some that allow for more creativity than others. For example, when I shoot real estate, my ability to add any sort of creative aspect is limited within walls and to what best showcases each property. However, when I shoot portraits for music artists or weddings or even landscapes, I mostly have full creative control and I try to incorporate as much of my personal style because of that. Most of this comes in the post-processing and the editing, but I am slowly finding ways to incorporate my style while I am shooting. I make photos that showcase each moment to its fullest potential, and that's what I believe makes each shoot special, no matter what type of shoot it is.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I would rather show my portfolio than list awards, but that doesn't mean I haven't received any.
My work has been featured in several independent art magazines and has been featured in galleries both in the Midwest US as well as in Iceland in Germany.
A fun fact about this photographer
I am more of an introvert than an extrovert, but when I've got a camera in my hand, I would like to think I'm more extroverted than normal.
