The First One Hundred
Day 22, March 29
Niko, ever the adventurer, arrived on an evening of drizzling rain. Determined to be an artist by any means, Niko has dabbled in many arenas, including acting, photography, filmmaking, and comedic writing. After being in front of the camera didn't go as he planned, he invested in a Canon 7D and took a position on the other side of the lens.
When he first began his life behind the camera, he was quickly indoctrinated to the harsh reality that not everyone appreciates the hard work of an artist. After producing and directing a music video and handing it off to a client, he was devastated to later learn that the client scrubbed his name off of the video and refused to give him credit. Due to this disappointing event, Niko put his camera down for an extended period of time. Thankfully, he worked past the negative experience and eventually picked up his 7D again. He began to take photographs and after hearing an encouraging word from his father, he decided to continue capturing images.
Niko recently returned from a grand trip to Iceland. Tony loved the big coat Niko wore during this portion of his session. His voluminous hair, noteworthy beard, cool shades, and furry hood do Niko's style real justice. He uses his fashion to make a statement, and often it is a statement that everyone is paying attention to.
The celebrated apologist, GK Chesterton wrote, "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." Here, Chesterton and the seasoned, wiser Niko may agree: all travels and experiences, no matter how trying they may seem at the time have the potential to be great adventures, thrilling journeys to look back on from future points of interests.
