Commercial photography

Stills photography: one picture speaks a thousand words!

We all know how true that is, and clearly good quality photography promotes a product or service.

So invest in a great photographer and then reap the returns in greater sales!

Nigel Hicks is just such a photographer, with the following credentials to reassure you that he can produce the best results:

Working together

Nigel always works with his clients in a collaborative way, listening carefully to their needs, and if requested then discussing and agreeing any particular photographic style needs that the client may have.

Specialist areas

Nigel has frequently been commended for his broad range of photographic skills, though of course he does have particular specialist areas.

For commercially oriented photography these revolve around the tourism, architectural and interiors photography fields, which see him frequently involved in tourism location photography, hotel photography (along with photography of restaurants, bars etc) and property photography, as well as more general architecturally and interiors-oriented photography projects.

Other areas of vital importance to Nigel are landscape and nature photography, generally by themselves of less commercial importance, but frequently essential components of travel photography projects.
