My Gear and how I use it for creative vision | Nikki Olivier

I've always loved seeing what other people shoot with and use as gear. It's even more interesting the different results everyone can create from using the exact same products. Here's a quick list of everything I have in my camera bag. Camera, lenses, accessories and why I love using these specific items.

Finding your way | Nikki Olivier photography

This I have been struggling with for the past 2 years.  My journey as a photographer began because of my children - like many other photographers. I studied how to use my gear, learned how to find the light, practiced posing, composition, connection, styling and grew as a capable photographer.  People began asking me to shoot their families and children, and suddenly I was a photographer charging money.  however, somewhere along this road I got lost - I lost my passion and determination - I was no longer photographing my children - but other peoples children.
