Hi, I'm Nicola
I’ve been shooting performances for many years and love being part of telling the story by capturing that decisive moment. I’m skilled in fast moving environments, discrete and adaptable both in the great outdoors or in a studio and although I’m based in the UK – Midlands am more than happy to travel.
So far I’ve worked on a BFI short film, student films, an ACE funded film and a WW2 love story feature film. I’m keen to get on set to continue to build on the experience I’ve had. In a past life I worked as a director in theatre marketing so i know what makes a great still and does justice to the script, in one beautiful, enigmatic and memorable shot. I know stills are important so I hope you will trust me to work with you and create some fabulous images of your production.
Highlights from Nicola
I love shooting in low light conditions and fast action sets. In my younger days I was a passionate rock-climber and advanced diver, so I’m not afraid of heights or the wild outdoors.
I shoot with Nikon Z8s Nikon 27-70 f2.8 lens and 70 – 200mm f2.8 lens plus a range of primes.

How did she do that ?
Incredible. If you want discreet stills, Nicola is the photographer you need. She was almost invisible and caught people at their most natural as they were concentrating on their roles – as actor, extra or crew member. The resultant stills are totally natural and true to life.
How did she get all those shots without my noticing her taking a single one ?
She has an eye for composition and a sense of drama and captures the moment every time. Highly recommended – with thanks !
