Nic Tucker has worked in photography since he left school in 1965, first as an assistant to a variety of photographers, working in advertising, design company work and film. He then worked as a freelance photographer for magazines and mostly commercial work. More recently he has been doing his “own thing”, which is far more satisfying than trying to recreate a nebulous idea of another person.
