Profile: Nikole Nelson

Set stylist and friend, Nikole is the ultimate hands on creative.

// June 4, 2011

HOB_NikoleNelson_1I credit our creative success to those friends who challenge us and encourage us to continually explore. Nikole has been a friend of ours for many years. We met in New York as SCAD alumni and have been fast friends ever since.

Nikole worked at Coach designing interior retail spaces, then decided she was ready for the next challenge in her career. Being involved in the photo industry I asked her, why not be a set stylist. Nikole has the amazing capability to take any space and completely transform it with texture and color. I would see some sets in publications, but none as well done as Nikole’s work. I am proud and pleased to say a year later she has found incredible success in that industry. She has worked with the A list of photographers in NYC and has clients that continually book her for jobs.

In addition to being incredibly talented, Nikole is by far one of the hardest working people I know (when I feel lazy, I think, what would Nikole say). She is a woman who really likes to get her hands dirty, which I really admire. Nikole builds all of her sets from scratch, so they always have a custom look. This lady knows her way around some power tools.

NYC is not an easy place to find success and seeing people who are motivated and hard working influences me greatly. Check out Nikole’s website and blog to see her amazing work.
