Feature #48 Nick Thompson “dipping in and out”

Nick Thompson first got into photography when he was 11 and his school had a dark room. Nick has been dipping in and out of it ever since and only took it a bit more seriously in the past 4 years. Nick got into street photography by accident as he was more interested in cityscape’s. He started noticing people more and more in his shots and became obsessed with just taking photos of people. “I’m always wondering where they are going, where they’ve been and what they’ve done and try to capture something of them or create an atmosphere using both black and white and colour” Said Nick. He uses a Nikon d300 with either a 35mm f/1.8 or a 50mm f/1.4. This enables Nick to get close. Nick’s next project will be London by night shot in black and white, very much in the steps of Brassai and Doisneau.
