Like it or not, if you’re a personality, entrepreneur, speaker, author, podcast host, or all of the above, you have a personal brand. The media you put out there says everything about who you are and the level that you play at. Are you someone who wants to play in an elevated space? Someone who is aspirational yet relatable at the same time? It’s a style of photography that I call Elevated Realism. It takes you above the noise and helps your audience connect with you. All the visual assets of your brand subconsciously tell people whether you’re someone they aspire to follow or not.

“I love the “GQ” style images I get from Nick Onken. He’s one of the best in the world at capturing powerful moments and a lifestyle that is attractive to the masses, and adds a premium quality to my brand. It’s helped me get on some of the biggest main stream press there is, land high paying speaking gigs, and increases the overall quality of my brand, separating me from everyone else in my industry. I highly recommend you get in front of his camera if you can!”

Lewis Howes, New York Times bestselling author of The School of Greatness

"GQ-Style" Photography For You & Your Brand

It will build a stronger bond with your audience. One that impacts sales and prep you for TV appearances, book deals, etc. It will elevate your public image to an impact reserved for magazines and other press.

Being Different.

If you are an entrepreneur, life coach, personal trainer or influencer and you ARE your brand: there is a lot at stake.

Every day you battle with a sea of sameness in your industry.

So, why handle your visual culture so casually?
