My name is Hunter Nichols. I’m a freelance photographer, videographer, video editor, and director based in Birmingham, Alabama. I offer a wide range of creative services including video commercials, documentaries, aerial photography, wedding photography, headshot photography, family portraits, architecture photography, fashion and product photography, real estate photography, studio voice recordings, even website building and design. You name it and I’m happy to help you with it. 

I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors and nature photography. This led me to study photography and art at the University of Montevallo and that quickly progressed into a love of filmmaking so I transferred to Auburn University and received a B.A. there in Radio, TV, and Film. I started freelancing in 2005 and soon founded Hunter Nichols Productions. When I’m not editing videos or photos can find me canoeing down a river or hiking up a trail. 



Cat Porter began collaborating on projects with Hunter Nichols Productions in 2010. She serves as an associate producer, produces music for films, operates cameras, and helps Hunter use correct spelling and grammar. Cat recently retired from ballet to focus on music, writing, and college. She is a creative busy bee and just released her first album, THE LONG HAUL. She also plans to release her first fiction book, Paper Plane, currently under review by a publisher. Cat is a student at UAB studying biomedical engineering. She has hopes to clone herself and produce even more creative work. You can listen to Cat’s music and purchase her new album by clicking here.
