About NCS

Hi, my name is Kial James, I’m the photographer behind Nevada City Scenics. NCS is essentially an online community that started on Facebook with me sharing local photos. But, it’s organically grown to so much more than that. It’s a place where I get to know folks from around the country (and world) by introducing them to my work; which is in essence, pretty pictures of our area we get to call home. I love sharing our little slice of God’s country to others. Whether it’s local folks, people that have moved away but still reminisce about the area or potential visitors to our area from in and out of state.

My goal is to do more than showcase this area. It’s about showing unique perspectives, hidden gems, great hiking trails, community events and so much more. I use FB and Insta as my platforms of choice, but the real tool of the trade is the beautiful surroundings and community we call home. Whether it’s downtown Nevada City and Commercial Street lit up at night or a view of Broad from the top, The Yuba, local trails that many volunteers put so much time and effort into building and maintaining, I want people to get outside and take a look around and see the area in a way perhaps they haven’t seen before.
