Nics photo

Nic is passionate about making images. His love of cinema helps evoke emotion and a sense of narrative in his work that either encompasses or documents his subject matter. With both Portraits and Landscapes Nic often manipulates light and colour to bring a beautiful cinematic and heightened quality to his work while still maintaining a truth and realism. He is known for photographing people in their natural environment where he captures genuine feelings and emotion. Enjoying both self directed assignments and large scale campaigns, Nic excels when collaborating on a brief as part of a team. Inspired by the execution of interesting briefs and strong concepts, his unique vision and creative energy help bring an idea life and often take it beyond the orignal intention. Always looking for something extra, he has been know to say "Just one more shot" more than a few times. Often working within set limitations and tough locations, Nic thrives in challenging conditions where his natural problem solving and creative thinking can really shine. His work has featured in campaigns for international and local brands including Vodafone, Red Bull, Air New Zealand, Nestle, Izuzu, Meridian Energy, Fonterra, Fisher & Paykel and Telecom. When not photographing interesting people or places or trying to convince someone to let him take one more shot, Nic can be found indulging his obsession with space travel. His work often takes him to interesting places around the globe. His dream assignment would be to photograph onboard the International Space Staion. On one recent trip to the USA he had hoped NASA might have contacted him for one such mission - They Didn't.
