Nicholas fled Detroit to study photography, graphic design and painting at the Rhode Island School of Design before moving to New York City. His love of well-designed objects and antiquities drew him into the world of commercial photography where he has worked with major ad agencies, corporations and boutique designers photographing Jewelry, luxury items, Architecture & interiors as well as fine art collections.
Nicholas' wide-ranging interests and creative skills have brought him to the attention of a diverse clientel. And his background allows him to incorporate a graphic designer’s sensitivity for concept and composition with the fine art photographer’s eye for lighting and drama.
His fine art photography and painting has been shown in galleries and museums in the U.S. and London and may be seen at www.nicholaspapadakis.com.
