We first met Nick LaVecchia about two years ago, around his hometown in Maine to better understand his places for inspiration when he uses a camera in lieu of a paintbrush and a strip of film as a canvas. Nick is a self-taught visual artist and storyteller and we are lucky to work with him. He is dedicated and possesses a growing passion for light, color, and composition.
"My idea of paradise....hmmm. The tropics are nice, but I tend to lean towards the chance for sub freezing temps, a foot of snow, ice, and minimal humans. I really love the change of seasons. It's like hitting reset mentally and creatively, every few months. But when winter comes, whether at home in Maine or somewhere in the Arctic, I get really excited to make new work."
