22nd January 2018 – Nigel Hicks – I Photograph therefore I am (Landscapes).

Dr. Nigel Hicks (FBIPP) is a highly experienced professional photographer, specialising in commercial photography, travel photography, landscape photography, nature photography, and architectural and interiors photography.
The evening opened with Nigel telling us that he “Sees the world in pictures” and that as a child he captured the world around him in drawings before moving onto photography following the gift of a Brownie box camera. How pleased we are that little box camera enabled Nigel to move onto greater things.

Nigel gave us a fascinating overview of his huge range photographic interests before moving onto his wonderful portfolio of stunning landscapes, subjects and locations. We learnt that Nigel’s advice that concentrating on simple composition is a critical key to grabbing attention and to drawing a viewer’s eye to the main subject in the image is the key to producing interesting and thought provoking images.
