as an award-winning art director, and later on, creative director, nick frank was responsible for the visual presentation of advertising campaigns for 15 years. he switched sides in 2010, focusing on expressing his ideas in his own pictures. this change marked a strong start in a new direction for nick.

his photography is based on reduction. when he approaches an object with the camera in front of his eyes, all of a sudden a world opens up. nick removes unwanted distractions from this world and distills the essence of what he wants the viewer to see into a more simple, graphic image.

understanding creative requirements and the need behind the is one thing; to feel and breathe life into it is the other. nick offers his clients a symbiosis of creativity and analytical thinking that meets both criteria . he is unique as a team player who excels in interacting with clients and creatives, as well as proposing creative solutions himself when necessary. these abilities have led to many fruitful collaborations - for instance, for wired, architectural digest, and spiegel, among others.
