Nathan Secker


Artist Biography:

The photographer Nathan Secker was born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand. His family ran an art gallery and, as a child in the 1960s, he was inspired particularly to take up a career in photography by Ansel Adams, the enormously successful photographer of epic American landscape scenes. Describing himself as "fortunate to be able to indulge a passion", Nathan Secker describes his artwork as a depiction of "the light, the landscape, shapes and colours found in nature”. He adds: “my part is to find a way to present the image as I have seen it. Everyone sees the world with their own filter and I am attempting to show that view through my own eyes". Nathan Secker emphasises that photography has always been a passion for him rather than a career. Having an associated business has given him the ability to embark on freelance trips only when these tours have a particular interest to him, rather than being forced to undertake the sort of photographic projects commissioned by others which many professional photographers find so stifling. Away from the camera, Nathan Secker’s interests include snowboarding, wakeboarding, windsurfing, hiking and climbing. His photographic work has also been used in stamp form and he has won several international stamp awards.
