During our transition from pixAbilities, LLC to our new roles at Forever, we said goodbye to a few of our beloved p2P teammates. While we cannot replace them and all they brought to pixels2Pages, we realize that we need to continue offering the things that bring you here. One of these would be our Photography Tips, which Justine faithfully shared with you for the past six years. Hopefully you are still following Justine’s blog and seeing her awesome photos on Facebook – if so, be sure and say hey to her now and again.
One of the great things about joining the Forever family is that Forever has a large reach and a big circle of influence. They also have a business relationship with our friend and award-winning photographer extraordinaire, Nick Kelsh. It didn’t take me long to check in with Nick to see if he’d be willing to help us out, and he graciously agreed.
You may know Nick from his website, How to Photograph Your Life, or you may have met him through his relationship with another scrapbooking company. Or maybe you saw him on Oprah, or you own one of the nine books he’s written or co-authored. You may have joined one of his “Click with Nick” photo adventures or you’ve gotten your fifteen minutes of one-on-one time with him at a Forever Retreat. You might have seen him at Forever LIVE (or maybe you will this year!), where you would have learned how to take incredible photos on your phone. If you’ve never heard of Nick before, you’re in for a treat!
I first met Nick maybe 10 (or more) years ago, and somehow our paths just keep crossing. He came to an event I co-hosted in the Raleigh Durham area of North Carolina and we have find ourselves sharing stages or spaces at large events several times a year since. He always brings a smile to my face and I always learn something new, even though I am one of his almost-hopeless cases when it comes to mastering my camera. Someday….
The things I love most about Nick are his easy-going nature and his patience as he imparts his wisdom about all things photography and shares his passion for life through a viewfinder – and outside it. He’s got a wicked good sense of humor and when you have his attention, you have his full attention. And he takes fantastic photos, and is happy to help you take great pictures, too.
So, without further ado (sorry, we didn’t get a parade coordinated!), here’s Nick!
