My name is Nick Livesey
Nick has been taking a camera with him into the mountains for almost two decades, but it was in 2010 when he really caught the landscape photography bug and he bought a decent compact camera, the Canon G12. His photography quickly became popular at the UKClimbing.com galleries and in 2012 he came third overall and won the Winter Walking and Scrambling categories in the UKC/UKH Mountain Photography Awards. That year also saw Nick commended in Landscape Photographer of the Year (LPOTY) with shot taken on a £60 compact camera.
Up until his move to Wales in 2013 he regularly visited all the main upland areas of the UK on walking, climbing and photography trips but since then, he has concentrated on his home patch and has developed extensive knowledge and experience of all the Snowdonian mountain ranges, culminating in his first book, Photographing The Snowdonia Mountains (fotoVUE 2018).
In 2014, Nick, with John Rowell and Marion Waine, opened the Soul of Snowdonia Gallery hosted by the Moel Siabod Cafe in Capel Curig selling framed prints, calendars and greeting cards.
A colourful personality with a compelling back story have made Nick a sought after speaker and the subject of many interviews on various websites and magazines such as The Great Outdoors, ON Landscape, Outdoor Photography, UKHillwalking.com and Summit as well as being a regular contributor to the routes section of TRAIL magazine. In 2017 he was featured in the award winning and critically acclaimed film short ‘My Mountain Healing’ by Film up High.
As a qualified mountain leader and outdoor first aider Nick offers mountain photography workshops and photo guiding throughout Snowdonia National Park.
