PODCAST EPISODE | WRITTEN INTERVIEWS
MIAMI, FL

Nicole Stephens is a Miami based freelance photographer and digital content creator with two years of touring experience as a marketer and content creator with a top brand.

Nicole Stephens got her start in 2010 slinging a point and shoot camera to local shows in South Florida to build up her portfolio in hopes of being able to photograph larger concerts for news blogs and music magazines. By the end of 2011, she had founded her own music publication, What's So Great About Florida? (now Speed of Sound Magazine), was granted her first photo pass to a large show, and photographed the Vans Warped Tour.

Stephens continued to photograph bigger and bigger concerts and events after re-branding her publication and moving to San Francisco, California to finish her BA in Media Studies at the University of San Francisco. From 2014 to 2015 she was the in house photography intern at local night club/music venue, Mezzanine, and a promotions assistant at the San Francisco Bay Area's top alternative radio station, Live 105, before kicking off her touring career in the summer of 2015 with the nation's largest teen smoking prevention campaign truth. (thetruth.com).

While touring with truth in 2015, Stephens was a part of Mayhem Festival, Odd Ball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, and Safe in Sound. She was responsible for face to face demographic outreach, shooting promotional photos of the activation on every date of the tour, interviewing festival goers, merchandise counts and displays, and set up and tear down of the activation. While on Mayhem Festival she frequently photographed the Pittsburg, PA hardcore outfit, Code Orange, and ultimately collaborated with them on a t-shirt design sold at This Is Hardcore 2015 and several of their subsequent tours.

In 2016, Stephens spent close to seven months of the year on the road with truth as a part of Vans Warped Tour and both legs of the High School Nation Tour. As part of her second year working with the brand, Stephens was given the additional duties of assisting her tour manager with scheduling and executing daily activities for each stop of the tour for her six other team members and brainstorming and creating content for the brand's social media profiles. The content Stephens produced for the brand ranged from video, gif, stop motion, and conceptual photos, all of which is viewable on her website under the "published content" tab.

After wrapping up her last tour cycle with truth at the end of 2016, Stephens has begun to reach out to various bands, labels, and brands offering her services. She is incredibly versatile in the style of and mediums in which she can create content and is open for travel in and out of state for the right project.
