Stills. Motion. Design.
The name's Nikki Ross. I'm the girl with the camera.
Born in Toronto, Ontario, I was raised in and around the UK and Saudi Arabia. This experience snowballed my ever-growing passion for travelling and exploring new opportunities.
For me, my career comes first - after family. I am an incredibly passionate individual, who is constantly looking to broaden my professional network.
With initial hopes of becoming an author and illustrator, that goal soon evolved as I developed an eye for photography and cinematography. From that point on, I have been determined to make visual content my future. Determination, dedication and obsessive organization are what differs me from the rest. When I put my mind to something, I give it my all and nothing less.
When I shoot, I want to capture an individual's presence in that exact moment. My heart lies with portrait, documentary photography, where I am able to capture non-fiction stories in a simple and honest way.
