“I love the “GQ” style images I get from Onken. He’s one of the best in the world at capturing powerful moments and a lifestyle that is attractive to the masses, and adds a premium quality to my brand. It’s helped me get on some of the biggest main stream press there is, land high paying speaking gigs, and increases the overall quality of my brand, separating my from everyone else in my industry. I highly recommend you get in front of his camera if you can!”
Lewis Howes, New York Times bestselling author of The School of Greatness
Hi, I’m Nick Onken. I am a Creative Alchemist. I help entrepreneurs, speakers, authors, coaches, etc up level their personal brand image through photography.
The media you put out there says everything about who you are and the level that you play at. Are you ready to play in an elevated space? Show up as who is aspirational yet relatable at the same time? My method of photography I call Elevated Realism takes you above the noise and helps your audience connect with you.
What I do very specifically is to capture the greatness in you–to find that light of charisma and authenticity and show it to the world. I’ve been doing it for some time now–for new entrepreneurs and today’s biggest celebrities alike.
Let’s up level your brand aesthetic together.
“I’m not one to like doing photoshoots, but needed to do one for my Limitless book launch. I love Nick’s high level approach and creative mind. He makes you feel comfortable being in front of the camera. The whole day was fun and easy. And the results were unforgettable.”
-Jim Kwik, NYT bestselling author
“Working with Nick was like working with a friend I’ve known for a lifetime. I’m not the biggest fan of getting my picture taken, but Nick really created a vibe and made me comfortable instantly. He played music, we had some match, we went into deep conversation and he knew just what to do and say to capture me in the most authentic way. It takes someone with great skill and awareness to capture someone’s essence, and that’s what Nick Onken does.”– Rosie Acosta Author, Speaker, Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher
“I worked as a fashion model for 10 years and never felt as comfortable in front of the camera as I did with Nick. Plus, never had pictures turn out as wonderful that reflected my true personality. They were so good, that my publisher wants to use them for my book cover!”
-Sarah Anne Stewart, Holistic Life Coach
“It would be easy to write a testimonial about Nick’s abilities. His mastery of cameras and knowledge of light. Sure, he’s brilliant at all the tech stuff. But that would disregard his real talent. Who he is as a human being. His heart. His playfulness. His kindness. His passion. His incredible style. It’s that combination of qualities that creates the space to allow his subjects to feel seen, held, and loved, so their true personality is the free to come out to play and be captured. Working with Nick is more than anything, pure fun. I can categorically say THE best photos I have of myself were taken by this man.”
Peter Crone – Celebrity Mind Coach
“Shooting with Nick turned out to be exponentially more than just a photography session. As an entrepreneur himself, Nick knows what we were looking to accomplish by refreshing our brand through imagery and acted more as a trusted advisor and invested collaborator that just happens to take incredible photos. Because of his work and visionary approach, my brand got the editorial polish it needed to present out work more professionally while raising out personal brand profiles.”
Jen Batchelor – Founder of Kin Social Tonic
“There is no way I could have predicted what happened after I switched my photos over to the ones I shot with Nick. My friends started saying things like “You’re a celebrity now!” and my Instagram follower count started going nuts. In the past I would one or two requests to be on podcasts each month and now I’m getting hit up every single day! Best of all I feel more confident sending the people I meet to my pages as I know they are going to be blown away by the branding. It’s the best money I’ve spent on my personal brand, probably ever.”
Craig Clemens – Writer Entrepreneur
Working with Nick was one of the best photoshoot experiences I’ve ever had. I felt so confident and beautiful during our time together. He was super open, professional, supportive, and also gently directed me towards poses, expressions, and movements that really allowed me to relax and trust that we were getting the best shots.
By moving forward and co-creating with me with any of the packages, you will be providing education for a child in the developing world for one year.
I’m a big believer in giving back to make the world a better place. I believe that education is the biggest game changer, as I’m sure you’ve experienced in your own entrepreneur journey.
Many children don’t have access to education, and I’ve been a huge supporter of my favorite charity, Pencils of Promise. Building physical school structures is highly important, but developing the quality of the education is just as important. Our goal this year is to support 100 kids in quality education which includes contributing to the school build fund, the sanitation program, teacher support and also bring digital table learning to the rural villages of Laos, Guatemala, and Ghana.
