Today we’d like to introduce you to Reiichi Nickleberry.
Reiichi, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I bought my first DSLR in 2013 while living in Honolulu Hawaii. I just wanted to capture my son’s sporting events as best I could. As I read the owners manuals and watched endless tutorials on Youtube I fell in love with the art of photography in itself so I got into landscape and street photography. I started posting my photos on Facebook and Instagram and got great feedback from family, friends, and even a few strangers from time to time. The landscape and street photos gained interest of coworkers and friends wanting portrait work done. I gave it a try and got some great results so here we are.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road has been pretty smooth so far I can’t really complain. I’m just having fun creating.
How would you describe the type of kid you were growing up?
I was a normal kid. I liked cartoons and video games but I always preferred the being outside with my friends. I’m an only child so my close friends became my brothers and sisters. I had a wide variety of interests from music to skating to acting in high school. I’ve always been pretty social and I loved having fun.
Is there a specific memory from when you were younger that you really miss?
I’d have to say going to Gospel Night at World On Wheels in midtown. It was the meeting spot on Friday nights and was just a lot of fun.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Right now I just want to shoot as much as I can and perfect my craft. I’m looking forward to launching my website later this fall. There is no end game for me I want to do a little bit of everything. I want to get into fashion and editorial photography if the opportunity presents itself. Hopefully one get one of my photos on a magazine cover or two, that would be nice.
