About Nature Photography Classes - Nic Stover

Nature Photography Classes was founded in 2021 by Nic Stover. Nic grew up in Carbondale, Colorado and now lives in San Luis Obispo, CA with his wife Jen where he teaches photography classes, leads in person workshops, brings together amazing educators, and interacts with people at local art fairs who want to put their work in their home or business.

Nic is a lifelong entrepreneur who turned “Professional” photographer in 2020.  This allows him to spend 90 or so days a year in the field and has taken him to all 7 continents.  While he enjoys travel and exploration it is often the places he gets to return like the Canadian Rockies, High Sierra of CA, or Desert Southwest of the US that hold the most value for him on his own creative journey. 

Nic’s primary way of interacting with others is through Nature Photography Classes where he hosts a regular speaker series bringing in the very best nature photography teachers and educators.  Through this work he also gives back through the Inspired Creator Grant where he has distributed over $20,000 to individuals who foster deeper connection to their natural environment.

Nic works daily on a mission to “help nature photographers, who are interested in deeper connections, create more impactful images, so they can confidently and consistently express themselves.”  It his belief that we choose the craft of or the appreciation of photography to deepen our connection to ourselves, others, or the natural environment.  Through this journey Nic’s hope is to engage people into their natural environment and deepen their appreciation of the beauty and the opportunities that exist to protect this amazing place we call earth.  

Together we will look to understand more about your photography, the creative process, and the emotional meanings behind the images we create. This online group will include a combination of free presentations, affordable classes to focus on specific key topics, and destination-focused explorations.

All skill levels are welcome! We focus primarily on landscape and nature photography. Some topics and events include deeper dives into composition, understanding how lines and shapes drive us emotionally, the science and emotion of color, Black & White Photography, Evaluating and Working with Light, and many other classes/presentations.  For those of you looking to go even deeper in their understanding of what drives them, patterns we have formed, and how we can improve our relationships Nic encourages you to check out the inspirational and practical content his wife produces through the Human Infusion Project.
