Rebecca Nieminen

A photographer, artist, author and award-winning journalist, Rebecca S. Nieminen owns Storyteller Photography: Images by Rebecca, based in Kinsman, Ohio. In addition to her portraiture, Nieminen’s landscape photographs have gained recognition and praise. These feature views of local rural life, including farmyard cows and tractors, country churches, weathered barns, windswept lakeshores and vibrant sunrises and sunsets. People say her work inspires them to recognize the beauty around them that they may otherwise take for granted.

Rebecca has been a featured artist at The Trumbull Art Gallery in Warren, Ohio, and at The Conneaut Arts Center in Conneaut, Ohio. She has also been included in shows at The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown. Many of her photographs look like paintings and have a soft, dream-like quality with gorgeous golden light and dramatic, colorful skies. Rebecca has long been passionate about conveying stories through both the written word and through imagery. She is currently working on a book of photographs and poetry.

In 2022 she published her first novel--a work of historical fiction inspired by true events. Prior to becoming a professional photographer she taught introductory writing at Youngstown State University and worked as a reporter for The Vindicator for several years. She earned her Bachelor's in professional writing and editing in 1998 (with a minor in Photography) and her Master's in English in 2010, both from Youngstown State University. She is a lifelong resident of rural Northeastern Ohio. She enjoys spending time in nature, traveling to new destinations (camera in hand), genealogy, shopping for antiques, and spending time with her loved ones and her two Welsh corgis.
