The Nikon Kidd Interviews

May 25, 2018

Between 2014 and 2016 I travelled some 20,000 miles by train, thumb, and van, documenting the vagabonds, travelers, trainhoppers, and tramps of the United States. I have collected 50+ interviews, which have been collected here. When I started this project, I had no idea where it would lead me. I had no idea the impact […]

Welcome to the new Nikon Kidd website! This is my third redesign in as many years, but I am super happy with how this is all coming together. I’ve moved from Wix, to Squarespace, to Showit, and this is my favorite platform so far. Showit seems to combine everything I like about the customization in […]

Why I haven’t been making any more blog posts

May 24, 2018

If you like to regularly check up on my blog, you might have been disappointed this year. I haven’t posted since January! Wow! The reason why is this: I’ve been designing a brand new, even prettier website. It’s far from finished, but you can check out the progress here: http://the-nikon-kidd-2.showit.site/ I’ve been planning this switch for […]

When I started photographing as The Nikon Kidd back in 2014, I never thought I would have an opportunity like this one. I was invited to Costa Rica to shoot one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. As far as destination weddings go, you can’t get much better than this! I arrived a few […]

My Nine Best Photos of 2017

January 1, 2018

This year was such a big one for me. It was my first year in which my photography and writing were my only form of income, which is always a huge leap to make while starting your own business. It was a jump headfirst into the deep end, but guess what? I did well for myself! […]

  The Tanyard Creek Nature Trails are a favorite of mine. I’ve been coming here with my friends since I was in Jr. High in Gravette. We’d play capture the flag, go swimming, explore the cave, and have a great time. It’s no coincidence that the trails have become on of my favorite local locations […]

Erin + Shawn – Natural Falls, Oklahoma Engagement

November 18, 2017

  Erin and Shawn are two lovely high school sweethearts from the town of Gentry, Arkansas. Few couples I shoot are so natural and at one with each other. They made my job so easy! We settled on a new (to me) location for our shoot. Natural Falls State Park in Oklahoma, home of the […]

Wow! What a day! Cassie and Danny picked the perfect location for their shoot – The Flatside Wilderness near Ola, Arkansas. We hiked up a little trail to a point called Flatside Vista. It was so beautiful, and the lighting was perfect for my style of photography. The clouds brought out all that great fall […]

Jade + Ariel – Twin Falls Couple’s Shoot

October 24, 2017

Happy. Happy is the best way to describe Jade and Ariel. They drove down from Springfield, Missouri to celebrate three years as a couple and run around the Ozarks. For our shoot we settled on Twin (or Triple) Falls in the Ponca area near the Buffalo River in Arkansas. It’s a beautiful location all year […]

  I’m not usually a maternity photographer, but I couldn’t turn down the opportunity when my good friend Devon became pregnant with her first child. We held the shoot on her father’s land near Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was such a special time and I am glad I was able to be part of it. Update: […]
