My name is Josie Nelson and I am a 20-year-old self taught photographer based out of the Midwest. 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. Though there was & still is a lot of growing & learning to be done, I realized that I had an eye for this photography thing. The early stages of my career consisted of going on small adventures around Indiana & bringing my friends along to model for me.

More recently, I've been focusing on broadening my career as a music photographer. The ultimate goal is to go on tour with an artists I love & to take the best photos of my life. Over the past 3 years, I've shot for artists such as Lauv, Chase Atlantic, Logic, & Billie Eilish. Since the start of my career as a 'professional concert go-er', my photos have earned recognition from notable celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Goody Grace, Bella Thorne, and Natasha Bedingfield. I hope to continue growing this list of names as my career carries on.
