About Nigel HicksA black and white photo of Nigel Hicks, a commercial and editorial photographer in Devon, south west England.

Nigel has been a professional photographer for over 20 years, specialising mainly in travel, landscape, nature and architectural photography.

Although he originally trained as a biologist (obtaining a PhD in the process), photography was a passion from childhood, eventually leading him to decide that he’d rather work to capture the beauty of our natural world through a camera lens than study it through a microscope!

For the first few years of his photographic career he lived in Hong Kong, but for most of the time he has been based in his home area of Devon, southwest England.

Nigel shoots for National Geographic Creative, and is a Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP), the highest qualification in what is one of the UK’s leading professional photography bodies.


Travelling the world

Although based in Britain, his work has taken him all over the world, commissioned shoots leading him to photograph for tourism, ecotourism and conservation projects in places ranging from the rainforests of Malaysia and the Philippines to the volcanic landscapes of Iceland, from the savannah of Kenya to the steppe and glaciers of Patagonia.


Photography workshops

Closer to home, Nigel runs his own photography workshops, consisting of a series of one-day workshops in southwest England, plus overseas photo tours, and regular online photography courses, in association with My Photo School.


Publishing

He also has his own publishing company, Aquaterra Publishing, which produces books, greetings cards and prints utilising his photography.



Current projects

Nigel has recently published his latest book, Wild Southwest, about the wildlife and landscapes of southwest England. He will also soon be publishing another book on the Philippines. One of Nigel’s main clients at present is National Geographic Creative, the National Geographic Society’s photography and publishing division. He is also working on a couple of new books, one about the Philippines, the other on photography.
