A week ago today, I was just packing my bag for a shoot in central London. I was going to spend a whole day in a basement, hopelessly outnumbered by engineers. Also, the coffee would be bad. Anyone who knows me even slightly would imagine that might be my idea of hell, (the venue, in ...
So, these are the rejects from the Taylor Wessing portrait prize. I don’t want to go overboard with the WTFs, but there needs to have been some pretty strong competition for these to be considered unworthy of even an exhibition place… My favourites are Sir Ian McKellen, Simon Pegg and the Afghan man and his ...
It’s that famous line from Crocodile Dundee – the best cheesy 80s movie ever – where Mick Dundee is threatened by a street punk with a switchblade, and confronts his would-be assailant with the machete he keeps up the back of his jacket… My friend, fellow photographer Scott Chouciño, recently published a blog post about ...
Nick’s photography is exceptional. He has delivered two brilliant events for Leicester City Council and the Ride Leicester partnership with good humour and technical brilliance. He is sociable, reliable and very easy to work with.Andy Salkeld, Ride Leicester partnership.
I have worked with Nick on several projects and have always found him to be highly professional in gaining the best possible quality images that reflect completely the event we are attending. I would work with Nick again, and ask him to work on my projects whenever I can, and would advise others to do so too; a truly excellent photographer!Keith Allott, Badshoes Films.
What Nick does not know about lighting is not worth knowing. Nick is a great bloke and an excellent photographer. Seriously… hire this man!Shamir Ghumra, Consultant, Responsible Solutions.
Nick has a good eye for composition and fantastic use of light. He is extremely personable and provides a high level of professionalism on shoots. He is trustworthy and will go the extra mile to obtain a distinctive photograph with a quick turn around. He is particularly adept at capturing live performance. I use him for all my publicity and event recording.Clive Lawrence Ward, Actor.
If I ever need a photographer I give nick a bell. Without a doubt my favourite portrait photographer, but his skills extend to all areas of picture taking. General ninja with a camera and all round nice guy!Edd Smith, Technical Director, White Room.
Nick’s photography is of the highest professional and creative standards. I recommend him.

I was very anxious about having my photograph taken, but Nick managed to make the whole experience very normal, even enjoyable! I never once felt uncomfortable, or felt that the camera was getting in the way.
He picked out detail in my work that I hadn’t noticed before and the resulting images are great. I very much look forward to work with Nick again.Jayne Childs, J.C. Middlebrook.
Nick continues to inspire me. We have worked on many collaborations from photography and music inspired by mountain trips, to portraits and curating exhibitions. He is committed and extremely perceptive to the context we work in and his love for photography transcends the commission. He maintains an original canvas while continually challenging himself to explore new ideas. I highly recommend working with Nick, you’ll never forget his work.Matilda Brown, Composer.
