About Us

Nico Valentijn - Air Creek Photography LLC.
image Nico was born in Amsterdam and shortly after his third birthday his family moved to the Midwestern United States. His family always recorded memories with a camera... remember that Zeiss Ikon, Zip camera or the Kodak Brownie?

So, it was not a surprise when he graduated from college with a bachelor's degree and master's degree in Telecommunications, History, Information Science and Photography. A Ph.D is awaiting the completion of his dissertation.

Serving Indiana, Chicago's Loop, and the world he has worked in secondary education, collegiate level, and is the official photographer for a large metropolitan high school and provides the local newspapers with story related photos. Furthermore, he served on organizational steering committees ranging from the Indiana Convention Center trade shows in Indianapolis to the Elkhart Jazz Festival to being the President of our local Montessori school. Memorable moments ~ working with Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo), and the Marsalis brothers as their stage managers. He is currently a member of the National Press Photographers Association, Kelby One and the Professional Photographers of America.
