Nigel Hicks: writing and photography for the book publishing world.

Nigel is hugely experienced at providing writing and photography for the book publishing world. Indeed, he has authored and/or provided the photography for over 30 books. Most of these cover travel and tourism, wildlife and conservation, and photography.

Quite apart from the books he has authored, he has been the principal photographer for a huge number of books. These include a string of Dorling Kindersley’s Eyewitness and Top 10 travel guides, and he has been contributing photographer to untold numbers of books.

Most of his book work has been with British publishers, though he has worked with a number overseas. He has also launched his own publishing company, Aquaterra Publishing, which now produces a number of his own books.
