Mark Nicol


Having been heavily involved in music as a means of expression since my teens, I was first drawn to photography in my mid-thirties. Due to my visual impairment, music was a somewhat predictable path whereas taking pictures was not even on the radar. As a boy, I had tried my father’s film camera but couldn’t see well enough through the viewfinder to use it. At 34, I purchased a point and shoot digital camera because I could see fairly well through the LCD screen. Although I bought it with the intention of snapping casual photos, I was hooked on photography from the day I brought that camera home and have since worked steadily to improve my skills.

I am a generalist photographer and love bringing out the best in a variety of subjects. The thrill of traveling to capturing images in a place foreign to me and of hiking to the middle of nowhere to photograph the landscape at sunrise fuel my passion for photography.

When not squinting through my camera, I enjoy hiking, traveling, canoeing (each often with the intention of doing more squinting through my camera), chess and playing guitar. I live with my wife in Victoria BC along with our two cats and a dog.
