About - Nik Coli

My name is Niccolò (Nik) Coli, I’m Italian and I live in the wonderful city of Firenze (Florence), Tuscany.


MY STORY

My interest in photography begins in the year 2000, when I grab my father’s ASAHI Pentax K1000 film camera and bring it with me on a motorbike tour of France’s Provence region.

I had an amazing time riding around the countryside, but unfortunately the photographic experience didn’t turn out to be as successful. Back home I developed the film, and all the shots were burned out due to some -not well identified- problems with the shutter.

I was so frustrated that I didn’t handle any cameras for the next few months.

I like to think that those lost pictures gave me a reason to keep practicing.

I am still trying to re-capture the lost frames! A couple of years later, discovering the digital world was a true excitement.

I have always been a fan of computer graphic and the idea of combining it my passion for photography sounded just perfect.

I have had the possibility to put my passion to work for Tuscany’s landmark reportages, real-estate and advertisement.

At my current job I have the opportunity to travel around the world and explore new and different places, which makes me able to expand the frontiers of my photographic passion.


MY VISION

To me photography is a way to express an emotion, to open the doors of perception; I don’t really mind how I get there.

I am not a technical purist, I like experimenting with my style and I have been trying different photographic and post-processing techniques. I would define myself as a photographic explorer.

When I shoot a sunset on the ocean, rather than a guy walking on the street, I want to inspire in the viewer the same sensations I feel when I am in that place, on that specific moment.

If you ask me if one of my shots is true, I will answer it’s true to my eyes, that is why I like to refer to my gallery as “Inspirational Photography”.
