Colton Nelson - Owner & Photographer

Hi, my name is Colton Nelson.  I am an aspiring photographer, who also works as a Lifeguard and Swimming Instructor at our local pool in the small town of Beaumont, Alberta.  I've always loved taking photos, and admiring the work of other photographers.  I got my first camera when I was 5 years old, a Kodak CX7300, as a gift from my parents.  I used the camera on and off for a few years, learning from my dad, who would occasionally let me use his camera, a Minolta film SLR.  It wasn't until I was 14 that I got my first DSLR, a Canon Rebel T3i.  At the time, it was one of the best low cost, introductory consumer cameras.  I mostly took pictures of landscapes, and other objects that didn't move.  It wasn't until I was 19, when I volunteered to run a photo booth at an event, that I decided I wanted to pursue a business in photography.



If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a photograph is worth a million.  My goal is to capture photographs that tell a story and show emotion, and that no mater how many times you look at it, the memories and feelings will never fade.


Prices are a tricky topic.  The needs, expectations, and corresponding steps that I need to go through vary depending on the shoot.  Because of this I cannot give an exact price until the desired outcome is discussed.  If you are interested in letting me work with you, please send me a message and we can discuss your ideas and together we can come up with an arrangement that works.
