Photographer • Filmmaker • Creative Director

Five years experience shooting Music, Social Event, Expedition Travel, Corporate Branding, Portraiture, Lifestyle, Advertising & Wedding Photography/Video.

With an ever growing interest for photography, film, expedition travel, motorbikes, and rockclimbing - Nick is a Sydney & Melbourne based Photographer and Filmmaker who's passions lie within the art of storytelling.  

Born in Aberdeen Scotland to a Scottish father and American mother, Nick travelled extensively as a child due his father's job in the Oil Field. At the age of four he moved to Houston Texas, where he lived for three years, before returning to Aberdeen. At the age of nine, Nick once again packed his bags and moved to Brunei, on the Island of Borneo. He lived in the jungle for a couple of years before moving to Sydney, Australia at the age of 12. During high school Nick spent a year training for the Australian Special Forces Commando TAG East regiment, before looking to pursue a career in the SAS-R. However, to his dismay he was rejected on medical terms due to an injury in his ankle. 

Instead of waiting for the six-month appeal process, Nick took a job in the Canadian Oilfield. He worked for several months as a Snubber (high pressure drilling) on Stand Alone units stationed throughout British Columbia, Alberta, and the Northern Territories. It was recorded as the coldest winter in 50 years with temperatures reaching as low as -51 Celcius plus Wind Chill. In search of a warmer climate, Nick took a job in Papua New Guinea, working as an Assistant Driller, running a seven man crew in the Central Highlands and Kutabu province. It was here that Nick was offered a 10yr contract in the oilfield. He turned it down, realising that he wanted to focus instead on developing his love for photography and begin along the path that he is pursuing today. 

Upon his return from PNG, Nick helped build photography company MY Media Sydney, whilst also studying a BA Media majoring in Film & Radio. He began professionally shooting a mixture of Music, Corporate Branding; and expanded his portfolio with trips to Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal. In 2016, Nick left MY Media Sydney to pursue Freelance work in the hope of expanding his experience in more eclectic fields. This has led to him adding to his repertoire by shooting a mixture of Weddings, Lifestyle, Music, Portraiture, and Expedition Travel photography + film. 

In 2017 Nick embarked on an expedition to Vietnam travelling 2500kms from Saigon to Hanoi via motorcycle, to creating a photo series and a short film about the experience [currently undergoing post production]. He is now working on a project based in Melbourne, living and touring in a Camper Van kitted for off grid - and shooting freelance work as he travels. 

And for the future? Well for that we'll just have to wait and see. 

Over the past few years, through both his work at MY Media Sydney and his own personal exploits,  Nick has had the pleasure of shooting for some great artists and been able to work for some brilliant clients and campaigns. Here are some of them.

“I found Nick to be consistent, reliable, punctual, and hardworking, he was an asset to me and the company… Nick is a bright, energetic, fast learner and always brings a positive attitude. Nick strives in a team environment and independently. He’s well-liked by clients and colleagues alike. He’s was very quick to take on new challenges and exceed expectation”

Rocky Rohatinsky, HAES. Snr Operator


Nick has assisted me on a variety of jobs and projects over the past 2-3 years, both as an onset assistant handling lighting and rigging and last year on a large national branding campaign for Raine and Horne as Operations Manager. He is outstanding - a true observer, highly intelligent and easy to work with, friendly and focussed. Nick solves problems before they are problems, which is a rare quality”
