NICK NAKAHARA | LOS ANGELES

An LA Native, Nick was born with a passion for all things motorized. His love for photography began at age 14 in his favorite middle school class. Three years later, he bought his first dirt-bike ... and so established a life-long merger of two infatuations. His intrinsic eye for aesthetics lead to a career in production design, providing opportunities to shoot productions and behind-the-scenes photography. It wasn’t until 2009 when he got hired to photograph Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats, that his infatuations truly intermixed. Through his photographs, his production knowledge and eye for emotional value are apparent, along with his instinct to know when and where to be. But he will always acknowledge the angel on his shoulder, good ol' Lady Luck.
