About Nikki Fox

Award-winning photojournalist Nikki Fox has always sought adventure in the outdoors and within people. Upon graduating high school she moved to Brazil and attended an Art College at São José do Rio Preto, São Paulo. Next, she enrolled at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and earned her Bachelor of Journalism in 2000.

A Nebraska native, Nikki has traveled solo across the country, mainly using photojournalism jobs at newspapers as the means. She has lived in Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Wyoming, California, North Carolina, Kentucky and Virginia as an adult.

Her first web page was created in 1998, when the Internet was in its infancy. It was written in straight html on a Simple Text document, and it featured her photojournalism portfolio. It has evolved over the years and has been redesigned multiple times. Nikki enjoys design, learning new ways to make and develop websites, creating graphics and laying out magazines.

Nikki has been living in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley for over 13 years and had worked at a medium-sized newspaper as its Director of Photography until April 1. While living in Appalachia, she has fallen in love with the exploration of caves and now maps new caves in the Virginias. Combining caving, with vertical techniques and years of photography, she has self-published her first caving book in 2008 titled, "Going Down . . . Underground."

She is currently contemplating her next step in her career.
