More About the Author
Obviously, this wasn't a moment of clarity for Nick that the camera was his tool for creation. It wasn't until 20 some years later that he actually put it to use.
After developing a passion for art, Nick became a graphic designer and spent five years graphically designing things. And it was cool. And it went well. But when he started taking photos for a couple of his clients he got noticed and decided to get serious. So he took the camera out of his mouth and started pushing the button. A lot.
Today, after shooting for clients like Nike, State Farm Insurance, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and Lamborghini, Nick is quickly spreading his philosophy of photography.
A big believer in living in the moment, his photos follow suit. With a designer's eye, he's constantly searching for that perfect moment to tell the whole story. And the pursuit of these moments has taken him around the world. His love of travel has recently collided with his career and he's published his first book, Photo Trekking. It's also moved him from Los Angeles to New York City this year, abandoning the beautiful weather and tropical views in favor of subway lunatics and urban skylarking. The latter of which obviously lead to more interesting moments. You'll never catch a palm tree doing back flips on a crowded train.

A good portfolio book if you like Nick Onkens photos, as I do. Other than that, there's not much new information in the book that isn't available online at his site.Published on June 27, 2013 by Tony
I agree, there are some helpful tips in the book. The pictures on the other side (most of them in my opinion)are more like snapshots. Read morePublished on June 23, 2010 by Dobay Ferenc
