Rik Nagel

I spent 2 decades scouting locations for commercials, films, TV and photography. Exploring in the heart of cities and the edges of nature to find the perfect spot to tell the story. Every project was a new and challenging adventure. A self taught photographer, I honed my skills working with brilliant photographers and directors. One important lesson for a great photograph is being in the right place with eyes open. During the pandemic of 2020, I traveled through all 48 states, witnessing history as it was happening.
