His work aims to ignite a passion for underappreciated wildlife—from birds to insects and vipers—by bringing a wide audience into the lives of these animals through ethical photography. Nick knows that powerful images can inspire admiration from those who once feared often misunderstood animals and give people a new respect for more familiar feathered inhabitants.
