LET'S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

photography takes an instant out of time altering life by holding it still

Ciao I’m Nicole and I’m so happy that you’d like to know more about me. I am a South African portrait, lifestyle and wedding photographer based in Italy.

I decided very early on in my career, that my twenties would be dedicated to exploring our beautiful planet. So within a few months, I had left my career in architecture, waved goodbye to Cape Town and headed for the sunny skies of Dubai. I lived in the sandpit for over six years. Being based there enabled me to travel to countries that I had only dreamed of visiting before. It was easily the best decision that I had ever made.

"I have interacted and worked with people from diverse backgrounds and places."

So far I have ticked off fifty-six countries from of my travel list. Mexico, Japan and the Maldives are but a few of the countries that I have had the pleasure to discover and fall in love with. While exploring the world, I captured and collected my memories through photographs. This is where my sheer joy of taking photographs was born!

It was also on this "wander-full" journey that I met my husband, Mauro. We now live just outside of Milan with Alfred - our naughty cat!

I feel that I have inherited a piece of each of the cities and countries that I have lived in: the laid-back character of Cape Town, the ambition of Dubai and the love of "la bella vita" in Italy. Owing to my somewhat adventurous life as a 'digital nomad', I have had the rare and rewarding experience of interacting and working with people from diverse backgrounds and places - something that I hope is reflected in my photographs.

When I am not travelling I am continually drawn to the creative life. I bought my first DSLR camera in 2011 and what started out as a hobby has evolved into a passion and now a career. To put it simply, that's how I became a photographer.

My thoughts about photography are simple. I believe that a moment is immortalised through a photograph and I would like to be there to capture raw and unguarded moments of emotion throughout our time together. Whether it is a wedding, portrait or lifestyle photography that you would like me to photograph, it will be both my privilege and pleasure to be welcomed by you. I look forward to capturing your story through these time-frames that we call photographs.

If you have connected with my images and my storytelling, I would love to hear from you.
