As with many passionate photographers, this is my form of expression. Inspired by renowned National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry, I blend photojournalism with my love for the outdoors, people and exploring the world in which we live.
It all started for me when I was 10 years old. Sneaking out of the house one night with my grandmother’s 1973 Minolta SRT-303 to capture an approaching lightning storm off our front porch. It was well past my bedtime and I knew I’d get in trouble but I was too intrigued by what nature was carrying towards me to care.
Luckily things haven’t changed much since then, except I’ve since traded my dad’s Minolta SRT for a Canon DSLR and I’ve been exploring well beyond our front porch.nickdiamondphotography.ca/
