Nikki got her start as a hobbyist photographer before she’d even left college, regularly documenting the then-burgeoning dance punk uprising of the mid noughties at small local venues photographing bands like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Be Your Own Pet. After a small hiatus, she returned to the world of live concert photography in 2017. Now enjoying the company of larger and more diverse acts, Nikki enjoys taking pictures of a huge range of artists, from international touring acts in UK arenas to independent brass bands in food festival car parks.
When she’s not buzzing around on the other side of the pit barrier, Nikki enjoys taking baby portraits for friends and colleagues, as well as recently being appointed as the official photographer for the fundraising events at both Birmingham Women’s and Children’s hospital charities. She can be found on Instagram at @nikkirodge where you can find snapshots from all of her regular gig photography and other exploits from her busy life.
