Nick Caro is a freelance photographer and photojournalist and has been involved with photography since dismantling his mothers Kodak Instamatic with a screwdriver at the age of three. Since that first brief, but formative and emotional foray into the world of cameras and photography, he has (figuratively speaking) never looked back.
At the age of six, encouraged by his father (also a keen amateur photographer) to learn the traditional black and white processing and printing techniques, he spent many a late night, much against his mothers wishes in a jury-rigged darkroom that bore more than a passing resemblance to the family kitchen. There he developed not only his first film and prints but also his passion for photography. Whilst the results were often less than professional, the desire to take and make pictures for a living was permanently fixed.
At school he continued his photographic education by often monopolising it’s small but enthusiastic photography department and darkroom at lunchtimes, and occasionally when technically in the eyes of his teachers, he should have been involved in more physical activities elsewhere. Cross-country running was never high on his list of priorities.
He continued his higher education studying Art, History of Art and Media Studies and then went on to study Art Foundation at Norwich School of Art, specializing in graphic design and photography.
After a few years in the wilderness, travelling, working and taking photos, he returned to his education studying Editorial Photography at Brighton University where he continued to expand his skills in the studio environment and in the newly blooming digital photography darkroom. Here he became fascinated with the new technologies of digital imaging and digital manipulation,
Since university he has been lucky enough to travel the world shooting both professionally and personally in many countries, including South Korea, China, New Zealand, USA, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Spain, Austria and the Netherlands, and has been published in America, New Zealand and the UK.
He is one of the official photographers for the Secret Garden Party Arts & Music Festival and The Glade Electronic Music Festival.
His work has been featured in The Guardian newspaper, The Independent, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, the Daily Mail, The NME and numerous on-line blogs and creative reviews.
