“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
"“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
“Nick is an incredible photographer, alchemist, and human. I feel so honored to have worked with him on my new brand photos. He is *the* person you want to capture you when you’re ready to step into the higher version of yourself and have your brand reflect that. The photos he captured are stunning, eye catching, and feel like ME. Nick’s ability to connect with you personally and spiritually translates into his ability to bring out your highest most expressed self for your shoot. He is pure gold. Thank you for creating magic with me, Nick! I am forever grateful ”
-Danielle Leslie, 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.
Most importantly though, I felt *like myself* when I was working with Nick. All I could think when I saw the final shots was “that’s me!!!!” because for the first time really, ever, I felt like the photos that he took truly represented how I felt inside. I looked happier than I had in a long time, and that was largely because I felt so beautiful and glowing in front of his camera.
Jill Palmer – Founder of The Clear Code
“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
“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.”
