My name is Nikolai Puc' and I am a concert, portrait, and humanitarian photographer in the greater Denver area. My passion is travel and I like to bring an interesting and refreshing aspect of life to my photography. Whether it's taking pictures in-studio or on the streets, my goal is to create beautiful works of art from my own unique perspective. My love of photography has allowed me to travel the world. My travels have taken me to 6 continents and over 30 countries. While on these photographic expeditions, I have had the opportunity to use my skills to provide images and promote awareness of several charitable endeavors for people in need of help. From working with orphaned babies in China to documenting Operation Smile's efforts in Madagascar, I love meeting new people and leaving a small footprint of good work wherever I go.
Besides photography, I spend my time in a variety of ways. I am currently pursuing a Non-Profit Media degree at Metropolitan State University of Denver. On top of my education, Soccer is another passion of mine; I follow international and European soccer wildly. I am also an avid vinyl record collector and I have over 4000 records. In my free time, I go thrift shopping for vinyl or soccer jerseys, which I also collect. I have a very eclectic taste in music, from obscure shoe-gaze music and 1950's doo-wop to indie rock and Hip Hop. I love music, specifically 80's New Wave, and while I feel like I know practically everything about that genre of music, I am always looking to learn more. I am a very laid back guy. I like to think I'm very mature for my age, but nobody knows if it's because I'm an old soul, or if it's because of the beard.
I would love to work with you on a project, vision, idea or just go shoot for fun. Who knows where the road will take us next...
