HELLO & WELCOME !

If you’re reading this it’s because you want to know a little bit about this photographer.

My name is Nick Skinner. I became interested in photography as a hobby whilst completing my chef apprenticeship. It was never anything serious. I started with a cheap point-and-shoot Sony digital camera and I would experiment with basic editing software in my spare time for fun.

When I finished my apprenticeship and became a qualified chef, I devoted a little more time and energy to my budding interest. The result was a Canon 5D MK II to replace my battered and bruised Sony. I still have it (and I’m still a chef!).

The results were immediate. I was hooked. The clarity, color and depth of field were things I had never been able to manipulate before. The varied images and shots I could capture were without number and I rapidly started learning what I could do with my new-found toy. I was like a kid in a candy shop! I was spurred on even further as friends, family and co-workers started to take notice of what I was producing. I was happy with my work but seeing the way it affected those around me was as shocking as it was flattering. I was really able to evoke emotion with a single image! The realization was a powerful one, so, with a fresh wave of encouragement behind me, I devoted more and more time to studying my craft and exploring Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula (where I live) for possible shoots. With a few new lenses and filters I continued to hone my skills and experiment with prolonged exposures. Slowly, a unique style started to manifest itself from my work……and it hasn’t stopped. I am still learning as you read this and I hope it never stops.

Vincent Versace once said, “You can capture motion with stillness and, in that moment, hold time still, yet experience the feeling of its passing.” I try to embody the spirit of his words with every shot I take. I believe his philosophy loans itself well to landscapes and seascapes and that’s what I primarily shoot. However, thanks to social networking, enthusiastic file sharing, and a lot of hard work (thanks guys), I’ve been gifted the opportunity to experiment in a range of other genres over the last 6 months and the results are exciting!

Weddings, social functions, bands, portraits, families, babies, pets, cars – I shoot them all. Due diligence is given to all the finer points of every shoot – no matter what the genre. So please, have a look and see for yourself and if you like it, give me a call.

Thanks for reading my bio. Happy trails to you and your own.


I chose Nick Skinner Photography for our wedding as he has great intention to detail and being able to tell a story with his photos. His professionalism and the quality of the final product was outstanding. He was so easy to work with and made myself and Mick feel very confident with what he was doing.
