Michael Nichols

For Michael “Nick” Nichols, it’s all about passion – finding a powerful way to document or glorify something you care about. He is also driven – by the work ethic born of a tough upbringing, and by a need to express himself, but later by the injustices he saw in the way we treat nature. “I found the vehicle in photography, I found the cause in the environment, and I found the patron in National Geographic.” Nichols joined Anastasia Photo in 2013

A prodigious pianist, soulful songwriter and vocalist of astonishing range and power, Charles transformed the pop-culture landscape with his melding of gospel, blues and R&B music during the 1950s.
