I'm a New York City based photographer specializing in interior, architecture, and food photography. I love to travel and happily take projects far beyond the city.
After years of photographing food and restaurants, I knew I wanted to focus on beautiful spaces. Restaurants aren't just a plate of food, they're a place you love to be and experience. A kitchen isn't just a place where food is cooked, it's the heart of a home, and it's a space we're all drawn toward. How these places are designed affects us on a deep level and has a massive impact on our lives, and I strive to highlight that and encourage people to seek out the best.
I like to make each project a fun and interactive experience. I get to know my clients and understand what they're striving toward, what their goals and aspirations are, what drew them to create the subject as it is and why. We all put a little bit of ourselves into our work, and I like to find what that is by getting to know the people I work with and having fun with them while we're on location. The objective of my images is to help them move onward and upward, to get where they're going with their work.
Each photo I take involves seeking out the very best composition and selecting the perfect combination of natural and practical light to create evocative, artistic images that draw the viewer in and allow them to feel transported to the place they're seeing.
When I'm not photographing interiors and architecture I'm out exploring new places to go and new things to eat. I've shot over 30,000 images for Nooklyn's Neighborhood Guides and continue to contribute both the guides and growing their Instagram account.
"I hired Nicholas after seeing some shots he did of a kitchen we made for a customer that hired him directly. The imagery struck a chord with me and we spent a day shooting a second kitchen that we had recently completed. That set of photos and work has already resulted in closing sales for my company. Fully capable, flexible and professional is what I can say about the work, truly a pleasure as a human and an individual to work with. Not that common in NYC so totally refreshing and inspiring." - Sergei Hasagawa, Purekitchen
"Nicholas has shot 3 of our restaurants for both food and interiors as well as our home which is used by location scouts for film and tv... all of the work we have gotten has been first rate and has helped us to better market our spaces and convey the beauty of what we created well. We highly recommend him for photo work and look forward to working with him again on our next project." - Richard Rossmassler, Restrauteur
"I hired Nicholas and his team to photograph a few of my residential renovation projects. I can't recommend them more highly. Nicholas knows which questions to ask upfront and ahead of time to ensure he arrives fully prepared for the shoot and ready to go. He is a careful listener, and tailors the equipment he brings to fit the needs of each space, from lighting to lenses to attitude. He is very transparent during each shoot, which allows me to preview images and be part of the process in real-time. Being a designer, I welcome the collaborative attitude, which ensures all parties are satisfied and aware of the value of services.
I also appreciate Nicholas's all around intention of helping businesses grow through his crafty, sensitive photography. He is well researched and does all he can to make each image an optimal capture of the quality of the space. No distortions, no over-exaggerated contrast, just beautiful, clean, bright architectural shots. " - Jessica Birnbaum, Emergent Form Design Architects
