Biography

Growing up in the North of England, the short summers and slate-grey winter skies inspired Nick Meek to create imagery exploring the possibilities of light and colour.

Nick loves simplicity within photography, his optimistic colour palette and spacious compositions giving the work an immediately identifiable look that have attracted commercial clients and galleries alike.
Editorial commissions include New York Times, New Yorker, Wired, Wallpaper, GQ, Esquire and has also been awarded the prestigious Carte Blanche in Le Monde.
Advertising campaigns including those for Mercedes, American Airlines, Carlsberg, British Airways, Absolute, BMW, Landrover, VW, Infiniti, IBM, Heineken, Smirnoff and Audi, have earned him awards from D&AD, Cannes Lions, Clios/Clios Health Care, The One Club, Communication Arts.
Nick’s personal photography projects have earned him awards both nationally and internationally.
His recently released monograph, Unreliable Memories is selected as one of the best photo books of 2022 by Photo Espãna.
