Austin, Texas : Freelance Photo, Video & Art Producer


Nicole Lloyd graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a BFA in Photography; not long after graduation (and a slew of different industry jobs) Nicole made her way to Los Angeles to begin her career in advertising as an Art Producer. While in LA she worked for various ad agencies including Deutsch and DDB on some of the world’s top brands including Volkswagen, PlayStation and Dr Pepper.

Nicole eventually left Los Angeles and made her way to Atlanta, Georgia where she launched Hello Pictures and immediately started producing advertising shoots for a variety of brands including Delta, Corona and Universal Pictures.

Nicole and Hello Pictures relocated to Austin, Texas in 2011 where she continues to provide both local and US services in freelance production. Nicole has experience working on several types of photo shoots, from still life, to large lifestyle productions, to automotive locations shoots with budgets ranging from $50K to over $500K as well as non-union video productions.

In 2016, after years producing content all over the US, Nicole along with Taro Naruse launched Make Create, a platform for sourcing and hiring vetted photography crew and production resources nationwide. With over 1200 listings in over 35 cities, Make Create continues to grow and connect people daily.
