Nick was born in Sweden to European parents and spent his earliest childhood in Sweden & Germany. The family moved to the UK when Nick was just four years old and he was educated in England, which is where his passion for photography began whilst studying graphic design at college. During this time Nick spent many months in a traditional darkroom learning film exposure and photographic printing, which he incorporated into his graphic studies as much as possible.
After a spell gaining a graphic art honours degree at De Montfort Uni, Nick put down his Pentax K1000 film camera in order to run a small graphic design company with his business partner at the time. After a decade of being involved in graphics and marketing his passion for landscape photography crept back and Nick began to spend more time out exploring nature following his photographic calling. This is around the time he was lucky to meet his wife to be April via instagram (aprildautlich.com). Their shared love of nature, landscape and being outdoors lead to an international romance and after three long years of commuting between the US and UK Nick finally upped sticks and they were married in one of their favourite coastal locations, Pacific City, Oregon.
Living in such an inspring place such as the Pacific Northwest has fuelled Nicks fire for continuously improving his landscape work and he is now more involved in education over at Capture Landscapes. He and April still spend as much time as possible exploring Oregon, Washington, California and the States in search of unique, personal landscapes to photograph.
