Who Is Niki Pike
ALL ABOUT ME
I am a Web and Graphic Designer by trade, and a photography by passion.
Ever since I can remember I have loved telling stories. When I was a child I used to spend countless hours creating and writing new stories and then give them to my family. As I grew older I stopped writing them down, stopped drawing the images, but I still retained the love of storytelling.
I never really thought that I would fall as hard and fast for photography as I did. I have always loved taking pictures and have always owned a camera, but it was mostly ordinary stuff. Vacations, family, friends, know the stuff that gets printed and then stuffed in an album and rarely sees the light of day?
It wasn’t until I received my first DSLR as a gift from my parents that I realized it would change my life forever. That same year I purchased an iPhone and downloaded a little app called Instagram. I became enthralled with the images I saw. I wanted to take pictures like that. I wanted to learn how to let my images do the story telling for me. I saw places, and birds, and animals and… the world. I wanted to learn everything.
Photography has opened up a whole new world I never knew existed and has brought some top notch friends into my life. It has made me get out of the house and see the world through new eyes. And because of this, and I am a happier person.
I tend to spend my days exploring the word around me now, instead of laying in front of the tv. It’s my way to reconnect with nature and disconnect from society for awhile.
