Vanessa Nelson

The View From Here Intern

During her time at Capitol Public Radio, Vanessa hopes to cultivate her photojournalism skills while working in a news room.

She brings a vast and varied amount of experience in photography.  As the Owner of JCN Photography, an events and portrait specialty, Vanessa has quite the knack for creating the moment and finding the right light, style, and composition for the instant in time being captured. 

She is pursuing a degree in photojournalism at Sacramento City College and will be graduating in the Fall of 2018. She serves as the Photo Editor for Sac City’s Mainline magazine, as well as The Express newspaper. These vocations along with her busy schedule of serving as a Teacher’s Assistant in many photojournalism and photography programs at Sac City have allowed her to hone the diverse skills necessary to land a great photojournalism job. 

In her down time you can see Vanessa chasing her kiddos around with her camera or taking them on road trips to the beach or a new hiking spot.
