Established in October 2006, Nick Carver Photography has become a leading source for online photography courses, group photography classes in Orange County, and Orange County private photography lessons. Nick Carver’s photos have been published in a multitude of notable periodicals including Outdoor Photographer magazine, Travel + Leisure magazine, Runner’s World magazine, OC Weekly, and Sunset magazine with his images appearing on the cover of Outdoor Photographer magazine, Coast magazine, OrangeCounty.com magazine, and the book Best Easy Day Hikes Orange County.

Nick Carver’s photography is heavily influenced by the natural world with the majority of his work centered around grand landscape photography and nature scenics. His mediums of choice include black and white film photography, color film photography, and digital photography with film formats and cameras ranging from 4x5 large format photography to 6x17 panoramic photography to medium format cameras and 35mm/DSLR cameras. Whether he chooses to make his images with traditional analog film or new-age digital technology, Nick believes strongly in getting the image right in-camera and on-location. As such, Nick never applies any heavy digital manipulation to his photos through the use of Photoshop or any similar program.
In 2008, Nick began his teaching career through private photography lessons in Orange County. His success as a private photography instructor eventually grew to include popular group photography classes, photography workshops, and online photography courses. Although Nick still does for-hire and commissioned photography work, he spends the majority of his working hours teaching photography to budding and experienced photographers alike. Nick finds great joy in the rewards of helping students become better photographers.
