Niles Harrison was born in 1973 and spent his formative years between Virginia Beach with his mother and rural Kentucky with his father. At the age of 17 he moved to Oklahoma to attend Spartan School of Aeronautics. When he was 20 he moved to Breckenridge, Colorado to pursue the life of a snowboarder. After sustaining serious injuries on the mountain he moved to Portland, Oregon and studied computer science. Niles has always been passionate about photography, art, and storytelling in many mediums. He has traveled to all 50 states, 23 countries, and 6 continents but he feels most at home in Venice, California where you might find him surfing, skateboarding, or strumming guitar – if he’s not on location lensing a film, commercial, or television series.
