Stuart Nicholls

Stuart Nicholls was born in 1976 in the maritime city of Portsmouth, the same time the world heard Zeppelin’s ‘Achilles Last Stand’. Pursuing his interest in photography, he studied the art at the colleges of South Downs and Stoke on Trent respectively.

In 2000 Stuart moved to London to assist noted music photographer Jill Furmanovsky. He became the specialist printer for her company ‘Rockarchive', where he practiced the traditional silver halide wet and digital processes. This experience secured him a place as one of the most highly regarded printers in the business. On top of this Stuart established himself as a proficient music photographer in his own right.

Stuart came to prominence as a result of his position as resident photographer at the Marquee and Islington Academy in 2004.

Stuart's unique style fast became recognised throughout the music industry. Record companies such as Warner Music and Rough Trade capitalised on his work. In addition to this Stuart has also worked on several jobs for Carling. More recently Stuart has embarked on a personal project. In this insincere digital age he wants to strip the art of photography back to its origins.
