Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Gerry Nicholls, I am a self-taught, passionate, freelance photographer based on the Gold Coast, Australia. I specialise in live-action photography - specifically in music and surfing with a very keen interest in other genres such as portraits, landscapes and nature.
My professional aim is to ensure that I produce high standards of work that comes with honesty and integrity; delivering my own unique style. Although I'm quietly spoken, I always let the images do the talking.
I developed a love for photography as a young adolescent with a keen eye for concert photography. I always wanted to be first in line at concerts so that I could be as close to the action as possible. I often dreamed about one day being on the other side of the barrier using a professional camera. To date, I've photographed many local and international musicans.
After leaving city life behind some 8 years ago and moving to the coast surfing quickly captured my attention. I was fascinated with what a surfer could do on a wave, spending hours watching their movements. It's through these countless hours that I began to anticipate the 'moment' to take the shot.
I love taking portraits! I enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of each personality, no matter what their age, through the lens. Whilst making my subjects feel natural and relaxed within their own skin. I have also photographed several weddings.
I am available for all types of work, both locally and interstate. Feel free to drop me a line to discuss your needs and requirements.
Thanks so much for visiting, I really hope you enjoy my work.
