Dakota Student

Nick Nelson
Throughout my life, the viewfinder of a camera has been how I viewed the world. I have been a photographer in the Grand Forks area since 2005, and shooting for the Dakota Student off and on since 2007. I graduated from the University of North Dakota in May of 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, though my passion has always gravitated towards photography and the capture of everyday life in an image. I count myself fortunate to have a career that allows me to connect with new people and document important moments in their lives, both in the UND community and elsewhere. In addition to still photography, I am also employed at Forum Communications as a photographer/videographer for Agweek and as a video production intern with the UND Athletics department. Should we meet, I am certain you will find me having the time of my life, camera in hand.
