Nick Bio

For me, image making isn't capturing a moment in time, it’s several moments combined. Blending, shaping and sculpting with light, is at the heart of my vision that creates images that stand out in a world of clutter. I’m a super control freak. Not just on set, later in a dim room, I build an image from the ground up.

Growing up in CA my parents worked in the retail industry. They told me I could do any job I want, but not in the retail industry. In high school I signed up for a photography class. That’s all it took, a dream come true.

One of my favorite quotes is from famed photographer, Jay Maisel "I'm not interested in showing you how clever I am, I want to show you how cool it can look"
