The Big Sales Pitch – I have been photojournalist, photographer, digital imaging consultant, web designer, fly fishing guide and an all-round jack of all trades, but a sales person I am not. Just look at my pitch, “Hire me – I will make you look great and your clients happy!”
I guess I will have to rely on my work displayed on these pages to reel you in as a client so please feel free to flip through all the pages of my website.
Photography – Editorial and Commercial
Capturing the Right Moment – Specializing in digital photography built on a base of years as a “Traditional Film Photographer” I can take your concepts, designs, notes or thoughts and commit them to pixels both in still or motion, all the while keeping in mind the final output of your product. I specialize in making your deadline, on budget with a minimum amount of fuss!
Some clients have contracted me with only basic parameters of what they are looking for in still imaging. It is here that as a self-motivated photographer I can really shine, work hard and dig up the images to fit your needs. Below are some of the examples of recent work done for various clients.

Born with a love of the outdoors life coupled with a passion for photography, a camera is never far from my hand.

Digital Imaging Consulting
It’s a fast paced and changing world making it hard to keep current on many of the different forms of imaging, software and communications. Being on the leading edge (some would call it the bleeding edge) of digital photography since 1994 has given me a unique skill set which I am able to pass along to clients.
Whether your company is large or small I can assist you through a maze of information and dis-information that abounds out there in the field of Digital Imaging. I offer both straight consulting services and on-site teaching services which can be contracted together or separately. In group sessions of two, to two hundred and fifty over the last year I have conducted courses, seminars and lectures on Colour Management, Digital Photography Workflow, Digital Camera Operation, Basic and Advanced Adobe Photoshop training and Digital SLR Videography.

Working with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, WordPress, iWeb or another web development tool I can build simple websites to full featured sites with multi-media with scripting services included. Once your site is up I can help you get and maintain a presence and position on the internet. If you already have a site and need additional content I can help there too!

It was really nice meeting. I enjoyed the lecture you gave entitled “Introduction to Digital SLR Photography, Color, Light and Technology” on October 15 & 16, 2010. You were witty and very informative. Your presentation drew me and the audience in and held our attention for the two day classes. There was never a dull moment. I will begin to implement all of your suggestions and I am confident I will improve and be a better photographer. Thank you for your helpful comments and suggestions.Marilyn C.
Great class as usual Nick. Thank you. You’re an inspiration to all of us Nikonians… my work has definitely improved because of you. Thank you again.David W.
Hi Nick, Thanks for the great input. I can’t wait to take your advice, my camera with its 18-55mm lens and those Cokin filters and go shoot more landscapes! It was super of you to take the time to get me started in the right direction. I really appreciate the time you took from your busy schedule to help me. Nikon is lucky to have you as an Ambassador/Instructor and I was lucky to end up in your class! Thanks again, Lynn R.Lynn R.
Nick, I am so hugely grateful for you. One of best things I ever did was take the course with you. ShellyBShelly B
Thanks very much for today. Really enjoyed the preparation you brought to the day. I spend a lot of time at conferences, and presentations, spending a lot more than we did to see you today – and I REALLY thought you “brought it” today. Looking forward to catching up with you again in the future.Paul D.
You were one of the instructors this past weekend at The Nikon School in Cleveland. This was the fifth Nikon School that I have attended. (two film classes, two digital classes) This was the first time you instructed one of the classes that I attended. I want you to know you are a great instructor! I really enjoyed your style of instruction. I also appreciate how you have follow up info on your web site for Nikon School students. Thanks again for a great class.Eric I.

I have been trying to email you to thank you for your time that you spent in Miami at Nikon school and really appreciate your time, that’s why I said that your short clip brought tears to my eyes because I have three kids of my own and I was a traveling man just like and could identify with it all!Eddie B.
Just a brief note to say how much the NHS members enjoyed your totally superb presentation! I’ll go out on a limb to state that your presentation was the highlight of the Convention! What a masterful job you did, and I thank you on behalf of the Nikon Historical Society. Totally professional!Mike Symons
Nick I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your classes last weekend. I attended both. I was the one who know Ron Edmonds. I should have taken a class when I first started using digital photography. Like I told you, I shot alot in the film era which is why I knew Ron and Andy DeLucia and Gary Fong. I stopped shooting for a long time. Digital is a whole new world. Thanks for a hint of what is available. I know the only way to learn more is to practice.Larry M.
