Nick is an award-winning wildlife photographer, author, photographic guide and conservationist. Raised in Kenya, he spent much of his life working in the City of London as a fund manager before running his own investment marketing business.
Returning to Africa in 2012, he refocused his life on something more worthwhile and emotionally rewarding – photography and conservation. He has spent the last eight years travelling across east and southern Africa, alone in his Landcruiser, visiting all the major national parks, engaging with conservationists and learning from communities that live with wildlife.
Nick has an enormous passion for painted wolves spending the last seven years following three packs on foot in Mana Pools, studying, photographing and documenting their lives with deep intimacy.
He is the co-author of the highly acclaimed coffee table book, Painted Wolves: A Wild Dogs Life, providing a powerful insight into the lives of the painted wolves. He is a founding Trustee of the Painted Wolf Foundation (www.paintedwolf.org) which he set up to help raise global awareness of this highly endangered species and support their conservation.
Nick leads specialist safaris across Africa to see these incredible creatures, offering his guests a unique insight and experience, usually working with conservation organisations who benefit directly from his trips.
Nick gives talks around the world on behalf of the painted wolf, appears on TV and radio, and has articles and photographs published in myriad publications globally including National Geographic.
Nick was an award winner in the Natural History Museum’s Wild Life Photographer of the Year Competition and is a Fellow of The Royal Geographical Society in London and a member of The Explorers Club in New York.
