Line of Contrast is a new series of works that explore both outward and inward looking themes.
The idea came about whilst reading The Limits to Growth, a 1972 book about the computer simulation of exponential economic and population growth with finite resource supplies.

Feeling a little restless at the moment. Wanting to push my style in new directions and make a progression…. to learn something new….
Wasn’t there a quote that said ‘ If you want to create something new, then all you have to do is look to the past’ ? I’m not sure, but playing with Black and White certainly feels refreshing to me at the moment.

What a lazy blogger !
Last summer we were commissioned by BBH to shoot this lovely ad for Robinson’s.
As long as I can remember Robinson’s has been synonymous with the British summertime and in particular Wimbledon….. oh come back summer !!January 27th, 2015 by Nick Meek
Last month the folks over at DLKW Lowe London asked me to shoot a poster for The Electoral Commission.
We headed off to Loch Chon in Scotland with a wonderful neon sign and a generator in the hope we would find that magic Scottish light.September 12th, 2014 by Nick Meek
A couple of days ago I took a vertical mile hike up to La Jonction, a huge granite ridge that leads to an area where two of Mont Blanc’s glaciers divide. My idea was to work on an ongoing project photographing these rivers of ice under the light of a full moon.
Unfortunately the weather forecast was a little out and I was caught in the middle of an electrical storm.
In the resulting series ‘Between Strikes’ I’m trying to convey that brooding summer heat and the atmosphere thick with static that one feels when thunder storms are overhead. Electromagnetic pulses lighting up these heavy skies

It was great to be called on by the folks over at G1 Paris to shoot these new ads for the Nissan X-Trail.
We shot the car with a mixture of flash and daylight on the roof of a beautiful new studio in Paris. We then took the car out to the French Alps to shoot it by a mountain lake. It required a little mathematics to figure the correct angle of reflection and some pretty ingenious location finding to match up the angle of the sun…. it was a really fun project…
There is something about Los Angeles in the summertime….. The heat and the haze does amazing things to the lens.May 20th, 2014 by Nick Meek
There’s something of a cultural shock when one passes through the tunnel that links France and Italy.
In days gone by you would have to travel 100′s of kilometres to negotiate this mountain in order to experience the differences of these two mountain villages.
Chamonix France and Courmayeur Italy lie on oposite slopes of this great mountain and have wonderfully different personalities.May 14th, 2014 by Nick Meek
