Nick Bradshaw, who is a KTXS photographer, has worked at the station since 2011.
Nick was raised in the Big Country and graduated from Eula High School, where he took pictures for the school newspaper.
Growing up, Nick had a love for news. After watching the Oklahoma City bombing news coverage, he knew exactly what he wanted to do. Nick spent time working in radio while attending high school. After the Sept. 11 attacks, he knew it was time. He started working at another local TV station as production assistant.
In March 2011, Nick came to KTXS as a dayside photographer. Since then, he has won several Associated Press awards, including best photojournalism in 2013 and 2014. Nick also won a 2014 Best Photojournalism EMMA award from the Lone-star chapter of The National Academy of Television.
Nick has numerous stories since 2011, including a string of devastating wildfires, the West explosion and a shooting in the Holiday Hills neighborhood.
In the Holiday Hills shooting, which involved a 12-year-old boy, Nick was the first news photographer on the scene. It was then that he took an interest in that neighborhood and the people who were trying to change things. Nick was able to meet the boy who was shot and says it was among his greatest moments.
When Nick isn’t working, he loves to travel, watch movies, music, and is a member of his church. He has served at Mission Abilene for several years as a youth pastor.
