Black Fae Day 2023 Photographers: NyteVisions Photography
We have several photographers coming to our 2023 Black Fae Day meetup next month so have your costumes ready! First up: Nyte of NyteVisions Media.
Nyte has been taking great photographs since 2007. Based in Cincinnati, he’s taken photos in most genres, but specializes in portraiture. He enjoys making fun and creative images, which, combined with his love of pop culture and media, has led to cosplay photography. Over the years, he has taken photos of numerous people at various conventions, and has participated for the last two years in the Black Fae Day events held locally. As 2023’s Black Fae Day event approaches, he hopes that he can help give more visibility to this growing community with the photos he’ll help create.
