Nick has always had a fascination with the ocean, what goes on beneath those waves....
“ I can remember as a young boy, on holiday with my family in Majorca, my father walking me down to watch the divers on the quayside gearing up before setting off in their RIB, they were like astronauts to me...deep sea adventures! “ – I knew then that my life would always have to work around the sea, not the other way round.
Photographer, scuba diver, surfer, underwater explorer, wanderer.
Nick has spent his life pursuing many different interests and looking for the next adventure.
After 7 years in the Royal Navy he pursued a career in dive instruction which led him to work on super-yacht. Then after a short stint in the west country UK; running a family pub next to one of Devon's best south coast surf spots, he moved to Australia to pursue a career in underwater videography and commercial diving. This eventually led to a job as safety diver for James Cameron's 'Deep Sea Challenger' exploration to the Mariana trench.
It's been during these adventures, travelling, that he discovered a passion for photography, recording people and places around the globe. Now, based back in the south west of the UK he particularly enjoy documentary photography, and building stories and reasons around the shots he take’s.
"I have loved sharks all my life, the way they look, the way they move. The balance that keeps our beautiful ocean eco-system relies on these fish! I have dived with a number of different shark from the largest Whale Shark in Thailand to the smallest dogfish in Plymouth Sound! I'm still captivated every time"
Nicks top surf spots are Norway, NSW (to many to mention along the central coast ) Australia, and North Cornwall.
