Hey folks, thanks for visiting my site. I’m currently in the process of putting it together and learning about Wordpress, WPBakery and all the other little plugins that makes these sites beautiful. So please have patience with me as this is taking much longer than I expected! In the meantime, have a look at my social media portfolios. Nick stanley photos

These are my areas of specialty.
WHY I DO IT
I call myself light hugger because I yearn to capture light’s natural embrace upon the world.
In the beginning I would take pictures of friends and family to work on my skills. However, that wasn’t enough for me so I started volunteering with the Community Edition. At TCE, I get to meet new and interesting people every month.
This started as a way for me to practice my macro photography indoors when the weather was bad outside. With my light table, I released that I can produce magazine quality photos of just about any small item.
There are times when I photograph things only for the mundane beauty of it. This could be a landscape or an urban setting, sometimes it’s just detail of a particular object. Usually it is the way natural light reflects or is in shadow, or the way something is highlighted in a beam of light that catches my eye. These are the uncategorized photos that I consider fine art.
Like most people my age, my first exposure to photography was with a simple point & shoot 35mm camera. However, by the early 2000’s I was able to purchase my own digital camera, a 3 megapixel Kodak. It was great, I could see what I had just taken, I could store hundreds of photos on a single card. I was like magic. But the more I got into digital photography and post processing the more I missed the magic of not knowing if my shot worked out or not. So, I started buying all types of 35mm and instant cameras to get some of that magic back. It is a great way to stay in practice with manual exposure and focus, it is a way to hone my practice that does not reward my need for instant gratification.
