With a uniquely creative outlook and a passionate drive toward success, Taylor Nicholson has revealed herself to be yet another star burning brightly under the radar in Philadelphia and poised to burst onto the scene in the film industry. Combining beauty, drive, and intelligence is sure to create a winning combination for this young & talented woman.
Raised in the bustling small town of Dillsburg, PA (which features a New Year’s Eve Pickle Drop!), Taylor was initially interested in studying Film and Production, but quickly found that it was design where she excelled the most. Currently a student at Philadelphia’s Drexel University where she is majoring in Graphic Design, she devotes her spare time to modeling and acting. In addition to being an actor and model, she is available as a Philadelphia Graphic Designer for hire »
She was a competitive figure skater at a young age but let competitive skating take a back seat after suffering a back fracture in high school; these days she skates just for the love of it. Charitably, Taylor has also been an active participant in The American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” as well as a Recreation Counselor for a United Cerebral Palsy summer camp serving children with special needs. With close ties to her family and a desire to “set a good example” for her younger sister, Taylor isn’t content with being just another pretty face, but has squarely set her sights on being a beautiful person too.
Take a moment and check out Taylor’s website, twitter feed, portfolio on ModelMayhem, as well as her listing on IMDB.
Taylor and I got together to shoot some portraits for general use. From headshots to lifestyle candid shots with my own take on them, we had a blast walking around Philadelphia’s University City and capturing these images!
These images were captured with one Ranger Quadra on a pole with a 17” Beauty Dish. Strategically placing Taylor to use the sun as our second light and taking advantage of overcast moments we were able to get some great lighting patterns! Check out some of the best shots of the day!
