Photography has taken Nigel Riches around the globe; the London native has shot on every continent, from the Arctic Circle to the Namib Desert, from Death Valley to the summit of Kilimanjaro. He is a master at shooting in the elements, capturing panoramic vistas and the rugged beauty of the outdoors, often employing his skills as a deep water diver or a licensed drone pilot in the process.
Whether he is shooting on location in the world’s farthest reaches or in studio, Nigel is as adept at working with natural light and minimal equipment as he is with large scale productions to capture intimate, seemingly unposed moments. Despite his uniquely relaxed, unobtrusive shooting style, Nigel -- in the words of the Bank of London’s creative director -- “always delivers the perfect shot.” It is perhaps for this reason that he counts among his advertising clients Peroni, Dove, Carlsberg, Runners Need, Go Outdoors, Dixons Carphone, Allianz, Winston, Arc’teryn, Supermalt, and Lipton. The filmic nature of Nigel’s stills naturally extends to motion in his work as a director, where his recent clients include Fat Face, Red Paddle, and Sunbird Beach Resort.
Nigel is based in London, and he travels the world with his camera.
