"Photography is my escape. It’s a place I go to when I want to craft a story, even if just for a moment. A paradigm to weave vignettes of dreams into tangible reality. I once read that a photograph is a secret about a secret; the more it tells you, the less you know." 

We got to know Nic a little better, read on and you can too;

Where are you right now?

Sydney, Australia.

How long have you been shooting and what lead you to it?

I've been shooting for 8 about 8 years now. I got into photography when my band broke up and I needed another creative outlet.

Have you changed your approach since you started?

Yes, more times than I'd like to admit. I guess it will always be changing. I guess at the core, I've always tried to tell stories.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I'm really into films and filmmakers. I think in another life, I would've been a cinematographer.

Have you ever had a shot that got away?

Way too many. Story of my life really. 

Where does your next photography mission take you?

I really hope to do some more work in South East Asia.

Any particularly memorable responses to your work?

My mum says she likes it. So there's that.

What jobs have you had other than being a photographer?

I actually spend most of my time in marketing roles.

If you couldn’t be a photographer, what would you do instead?

Play lots and lots and lots of guitar (although, I kinda do that already).

You have to choose one camera and one lens to take around the world. What would it be?

Something full frame with a 50mm 1.4 Zeiss prime attached to it.

If you could live someone else’s life for a day, who would it be and why?

Nah. My life is complicated enough. I can't imagine what someone else is going through and honestly, wouldn't want to.

Early riser or night owl?

I'm gonna say I'm both. It's messed up. I barely sleep.

What is something not many people know about you?

I was born in the US.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Photography begins before you pick up the camera. Train your eye before you train your skills.
