Editorial writing and photography

Editorial writing and photography by Nigel Hicks for books, magazines, newspapers, brochures and reports

Go to Nigel's blog

Nigel’s photography is strongly supported by the writing side of his business. This consists mainly of providing complete text-and-photo packages for books and magazines, though he also provides words for bespoke travel brochures, promoting venues and events.

This writing service enables Nigel to offer publishers complete packages in which the words and photos are tailored to match each other, saving editors the trouble of having to match them from sometimes disparate sources.

Writing and photography for magazines and newspapers

Nigel has been writing for a range of magazines for many years, specialising mainly in travel, the environment and photography. In recent times, this has been mostly for UK publications, but he does sometimes provide material to European and Southeast Asian publications.

Nigel has written numerous books on travel and nature in the Philippines and southwest England, as well as several photography books.

Through his own publishing company Aquaterra Publishing, he recently published Wild Southwest, a book about the landscapes and wildlife of southwest England, and now Beautiful Devon, a photographic book showcasing many of the loveliest places in this southwestern UK county. Follow-up titles are in progress.
