Planning, experimenting and striving for beauty in imperfection, we talk to creative photographer Nik Hartley.
'Nik self portrait'
David Hockney and an example of his work.Here are a few of Nik's pics from his inspiration journal.
Nik lives in SE1 and likes to spend much of his time walking in to central London for meetings; "Its only a 30-40 minuet walk". This is where he captures many of his idea pics. (like the ones above) "London's full of hidden gems and this time is peaceful and exciting enabling me to explore what i want to achieve."
Other shoots we talked about are his collaborations with Matches and shooting for British Vogue. (definitely a direction I believe he is perfect for)
"I favour simple images, not images that appear staged integrity is important to me in my images."
I was very pleased with Nik's selection all have a personality although simple and clean there is something magic in all the selects.
