A bespoke one-to-one photography workshop
A really good session with Nigel – he was attentive and informative.
South Devon coast workshop
I thoroughly enjoyed the Bantham workshop in April. So good to benefit from Nigel’s local knowledge and tips on the day to help make our images tell more of a story. The pre-workshop briefing sheets were a helpful foundation, a great group of fellow photographers, and some gentle critique of our efforts from Nigel afterwards made the workshop well worthwhile. So, the real test, has it made me a better photographer? Well I can genuinely say I’m thinking more about what I’m seeing through the lens, and getting more pleasure from the results.
Architectural photography workshop
I spent an excellent full day in Bath with Nigel starting promptly at 10am and finishing at 5pm with a break for lunch. In the days leading up to our course he was constantly in touch as the weather looked like it might cause some issues but in the end the right decision was made and we went ahead. Nigel was very happy to answer all questions no matter how basic and was keen to give help and advice on photographing buildings which is an area I have not really investigated before. I came away feeling a lot more confident on how to deal with this genre both in camera and post processing.
Architectural photography course, Bath
The course with Nigel was informative, technical when you wanted it to be but was always at your level. I picked up many tips and came away confirming that I had to change my camera gear to suit the type of photography I want to do in future!
I was also pleased to reinforce a lot of my knowledge through Nigel’s anecdotal comments. If you want some photography training that is easy going yet full of content, I would recommend Nigel every time.
Photography Gift Voucher
I recently purchased a gift voucher for a friend – Nigel was extremely helpful and friendly. He responded quickly to my queries and delivery of the voucher was quick and efficient.
Unmatched knowledge of nature and landscapes in The Philippines
My publishing company has commissioned Nigel to write and photograph numerous books about the Philippines, all of which he has produced with verve, skill and artistic creativity of the highest order.
Photography of properties
Thank you very much for the great photos you took for us at Gingerbread Homes. The houses look fantastic, and make such a difference from what we had before. We’ll need you back after every development we do to work the same magic! Thank you.
Photos inside and outside for house sale
Nigel was so professional from the start. He is extremely good and the pictures taken by him were nothing short of amazing. I recommend Nigel 100%.
Nigel has written several highly successful travel books for John Beaufoy Publishing. He is the ideal author: his text is well written, interesting and informative; his photographs are, of course, perfect illustrations of the text, as well as being a vibrant documentation of the life of the country being described whether it is the people, the urban scene, the landscapes or the wildlife. His eye for composition guides the book design and he is meticulous about accuracy.
Monthly virtual talk
I thought the talk was excellent and very informative. The photos used were also a good way of explaining the points.
Response from Nigel Hicks Photography
Hi Steph. Thanks so much for such a positive review. I’m so glad you enjoyed the talk on the critical role of good focus in photography.
This book is full of stunning images from around Cornwall. There’s far more to it than just landscapes images with plenty on the people and traditions. There’s not a huge amount of text, which is good as it’s book of images but just enough to set the scene for each chapter. The captions provide plenty of context to their host images.
It’s well worth the small outlay!
A great book full of tantalising images with thoroughly readable and informative text. Good value, and good presentation. A pleasure to own.
This book is not just about Somerset but one that takes in the adjacent areas to give you a wonderful ‘flavour’ of this beautiful County. As usual the Light & Composition of each photograph are stunning just on their own and will take you on a journey, you’ll want to explore yourself sometime. Nigel’s knowledge is conveyed in each chapter making this a great book to own and to add to the others in this collection.
A thoroughly enjoyable book to own and read, stunning imagery throughout to take you on a journey through the Southwest Peninsula. The easy style of writing, informative notes and those wonderful images throughout the book make it a difficult one to put down!
The third in Nigel’s series of County Portrait books follows the style of the previous volumes with an introduction to the region, followed by a more detailed look at five major areas. Although present day Somerset is smaller than formerly, the book includes Bristol and Bath, as well as south Somerset. You will find stunning images and informative text are the basis of the book. It is excellent value and a worthy addition to the Portrait Series.
