Born and raised in England, he now lives in the southern Californian mountains.

I thoroughly enjoyed A Shadow Falls and would recommend the book for yourself, or as a gift to a family member or friend. It will be appreciated forever.
A Shadow Falls is a masterpiece of photography, and brings those who look at these images closer to the soul of the animals than any Nat Geo show ever could. Each image feels like an intimate encounter, like it's just you, and the animal, alone in the wild. You can almost sense that they know you are looking at them. They are allowing you to be so close. It's personal.
Nick does not use zoom lenses, or telephotos, so all the images bring you right up where he was. The startling detail of the king of the beasts, the lion, or the majestic herds of elephants making their treks in search of water, portrayed in a manner that tells a story. They're not just photos, they're so much more.
As a musician (and part time photographer), I always ask people what 5 albums would they want to have on their iPod if they were stranded on a desert island. By the same token, I know what book I would want by my side should I ever find myself in that predicament.
A Shadow Falls.
This is a book for people who LOVE art, photography or even just plain beautiful pictures !!! the best book I have bought after one of Avedon's or Salgado's books.
you will love it
