BIO:

Nicki Frates is a landscape photographer who blends a deep reverence for nature and an appetite for adventure with an intuitive eye to create images that offer a distinctive and passionate perspective of the physical world. Nicki’s immediate following in the landscape photography world was accelerated by the release of an image she shot in Yosemite entitled “Fire Falls.” The photo sold to many publications and was chosen from among 45,000 other registered images from around the world and was displayed at the exhibition in Siena as well as published in the official Collective Photo Book entitled Beyond the Lens.

Nicki has also been featured on Pixels “Art My Way” docu-series, an inspiring video series which tells the stories of modern American visual artists and how they established themselves creatively. She has sold her work to numerous media publications, and has been a finalist in a variety of other national contests, such as Outdoor Photographer’s "The American Landscape 2016.”

Nicki is no stranger to art. She comes from a background in fashion design where she honed her skills of bringing visions to life, as well as exercised a keen awareness about the market. Her vision has been enhanced by her spiritual connection to the natural world, and her intention is to share a bit of that magic through each photo.

Nicki calls Los Angeles home and regularly travels globally to explore new destinations and capture the next shot.
