"…we jokingly refer to Nikki as 'the ninja' – she’s everywhere at once and yet completely invisible."


“Nikki pushes far beyond the ‘stock’ shots, and somehow manages to cover every aspect of even two-day summits singlehandedly… we jokingly refer to Nikki as ‘the ninja’ – she’s everywhere at once and yet completely invisible. Nikki has an infectious personality and is an absolute delight to work with.”

01_nikki_ritcher_photography About

I have created a vast portfolio in my twenty years of photographic experiences ranging from: corporate conferences, portraiture, lifestyle, and corporate branding. 

I’m a New Mexico native with a Colorado upbringing, proudly landing in Northern California in 2007. There have been many changes in my life, from cities I’ve lived in, to my professional focus within photography. However the scene changes, there remains one constant – my desire to elevate a viewer’s experience through captivating visual imagery and true expression. 

During the pandemic I shifted my photographic efforts to passion driven documentary projects. Volunteering on direct action campaigns with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and documenting stories needed for organizations such as We Animals Media … photojournalism for the planet, its people, and our oceans is where my heart and photographic passions collide and thrive.   

I travel as frequently as I can, rolling solo, with my partner, or with my most handsome rescue lab Redford … whether rad worldly experiences or remote outdoor adventures – both of which give me the calm of being digitally (but not camera) free.
