Jeff Nelson is an award winning photographer located in Jacksonville, Florida. He specializes in commercial photography including product images, marketing collateral, architecture, corporate events and headshots. He also enjoys photographing families for portraits and the occasional wedding.
After graduating from the University of Virginia, the small town native moved to Northeast Florida after a three year stint in Atlanta, GA. He enjoyed a successful career in commercial real estate until 2010 when he gave that up to pursue his love of photography full time.
Like many photographers, Jeff's interest started at an early age. His parents owned a 35mm camera and he would sneak into their room and pretend to take images with it. He was drawn to the bright white pop of the flash and the high pitched whistle it made as it recharged. He was hooked. He remembers long hours developing film for his school yearbooks and documenting college life as his fraternity's historian. However, it wasn't until a trip to Venice, Italy, that he took his photography to the next level.
Jeff was standing on the famous Rialto bridge and asked a tourist to take a picture of him with beautiful Venice as the background. When he developed the pictures from his trip, he was sorely disappointed that he was out of focus and nothing of Venice was recognizable. Jeff vowed never to let that happen again and from that moment on he has carefully composed each shot, even the ones that he is in. It is this attention to detail that Jeff and his team bring to every shoot.
