My name is Josie Nelson, it's nice to meet you! I am a 20-year-old self-taught photographer based out of Indianapolis and Chicago. For the longest time, I was indecisive on what I wanted my career path to be. After spending a semester at university studying nursing, I quickly realized that I was in need of something more creative, fast-paced, and personally inspiring. Though I'd taken a film photography class in high school, it never really struck me as a career possibility until I was given my first digital camera. There was & still is a lot of growing & learning to be done, but I realized quickly that I had an eye for this photography thing. I fell in love with music photography after shooting a live show for Mod Sun a few years back. This lead me to be interested in multiple other areas in the music industry such as merchandise and management.

More recently, I've been working as a merchandise vendor at festivals such as Rolling Loud New York and Astroworld Houston. It fascinating to experience live shows from a different point of view, whether it be in the crowd, in the photo pit, or in the merch tent. My ultimate goal is to go on tour with an artist I love & to take the best photos of my life; photo will always be my number one passion. Over the past 3 years, I've had the pleasure to shoot for some of my favorite artists such as Lauv, Chase Atlantic, Logic, & Billie Eilish, these shows are what have always fueled my fire the most. I plan to continue working hard on many areas of interest & hope to inspire others to do so as well.
