My name is Nic Coury and I am a professional photographer based in Monterey, California.
I have always enjoyed photography as a way to tell stories.
In my career, I have photographed professional sports, breaking news, commercial products and lots of people, and have shot and produced video multimedia projects as a way to enhance the visual story.
Around Monterey County, I have covered a variety of events, from the U.S. Moto Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In California, I have covered the NFL's Oakland Raiders and the California Rodeo Salinas.
I have also shot commercial and advertising photos for local businesses from wineries and bakeries, to architecture firms and car companies, like Bugatti and Ferrari.
I am currently working as the staff photographer for the Monterey County Weekly newspaper where I shoot news, sports and feature assignments, as well as produce multimedia pieces and help to manage our online presence.
