About me - Nick Jackson

If you like people photography then I hope you'll enjoy browsing through my galleries.

I first got into photography when I was at school, when my Dad handed me down his East German Praktica 35mm film camera. Despite it being pretty basic, needing to check my light meter before taking every shot, and having to focus manually, I really enjoyed it, and even tried my hand at processing film in the darkroom at school every now and again.

After leaving school I found other distractions, especially football and the scooter scene, but in 2006, with the advent of digital photography and a feeling of nostalgia, I bought an entry level camera, joined a camera club and got out and about taking photos again.

Since then I've enjoyed success at competition level, winning the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union individual competition in 2009, and being part of the UK team that won the FIAP World Black & White Sports Print competition in 2016. I've also achieved a credit from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (CPAGB) and a BPE1* from the British Photographic Exhibition.

As I've progressed my photographic career I've realised that it's people photography I enjoy most, especially where I can combine this with other passions.     

I love music and gigs, and spend a lot of time working with up and coming Warrington band Sweet Release, and I did the photography and cover design for their Darkest Hour EP.

I also work with Phoenix Fire Amateur Boxing Club in Warrington, covering the occasional amateur boxing show. Images from various past events are available to purchase on this website and a proportion of all my sales goes back to the club funds.

You can see a wide range of my work in my Gallery including event, equestrian and wedding photography. I also have a Facebook page, so please visit and 'like' the page to see some of my latest work, and and if you'd like to get in touch visit my contact page.


Thanks
