Who is J Nelson Images?

-Its me, Jeff Nelson. I am a portrait and nature photographer from Aurora, Colorado. I love shooting outdoors and incorporating the beautiful backdrops that Colorado provides. I have always had a passion for being outdoors and exploring new areas, which fit in great when I first started on my path of photography.

I grew up in Aurora, and currently teach 5th grade in the Cherry Creek School District. Teaching is one of the most exciting and challenging adventures I have ever been on, and I look forward to every day with my class. Photography has given me a great way to spend my holidays and breaks, often heading into the mountains in search of another scenic vista.


Getting out into the backcountry gives me a new location to shoot.

It's a beautiful thing. . .
