The essence of aerial photography – looking down from up high – is about offering new insights into landscapes and surroundings, even for the most familiar scenes. Nick Rains has been shooting striking aerial images throughout his career and this stunning collection of images turn industrial scenes, winding rivers and outback sand dunes into abstract art.
Nick Rains is a professional photographer specialising in travel and documentary work. His photographs have been featured in publications such as Australian Geographic, Australian Photography Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Australian Geographic, Reader’s Digest and more. He has photographed a range of subjects, including sport, news, celebrities, industry, travel, fashion and portraits, as well as worked for commercial clients such as Shell, BBC, Orion, Ponant and the Australian Government.
He is a Master Photographer of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, the Leica Akademie Principal Instructor and helps ‘committed enthusiasts’ take the photos they have been dreaming of in workshops held in far-flung locations around the world.
At a complimentary artist reception and talk at Leica Store Sydney guests enjoyed the opening night of the ‘Raised Awareness' on November 3 2017.
