Nicklaus has been obsessed with photography since he was 16 years old. At the time, his main interest was capturing photos of his friends skateboarding in his hometown. 

In early 2014, Nicklaus joined Stocksy United as both a  Senior Client Services Representative and contributing photographer. To this day, he’s still excited that he gets to be involved with an organization that puts photographers first.

Nicklaus's work has been licensed by some of the world's biggest brands including Apple, Conde Nast, Facebook, Amazon, Spotify, American Express, AT&T, Cosmopolitan, Walmart, Allergan,, Invesco, Healthline, John Hancock,, and Bauer Media.
