About Nicole (Chan) Loeb
I’m a Boston photographer and director – a first generation Chinese-American, an eldest daughter, and a big sister to my brother with Autism.
My signature “slice of life” portrait and lifestyle work tells colorful, joyful, and emotion-evoking stories for commercial brands. I have a passion for showcasing companies and individuals that are moving the needle, breaking ceilings, and accomplishing the unthinkable.
I began my photography career as a hobby in high school. Back then, I photographed everything that moved. (I still do!) After graduating with a degree in finance and computer science, I took a job that gave me a cubicle life and business suits. After several years of misery in the corporate world, I took the biggest risk of my life and went for full time into photography. It’s been eleven years, and I cannot imagine doing anything that would make me happier.
My comedy of previous careers include management consulting, Playboy staff photographer, and escape room designer.
I get a lot of inspiration from offbeat adventures. Recent favorites include hunting with the Hadzabe tribe in Tanzania and trekking the world’s largest cave – being 112th person to do so.
I’ve been told that that my quirky and neurotic organization makes being being on set fun and productive.
