about me

My name is Nico,
I’m a Photographer.

Shanghai based photographer, originally from France, I spend most of my time shooting between the Middle Kingdom and the rest of Asia.

I specialize in reportage, advertizing, portraiture and architecture & design photography. I also enjoy shooting BTS and events, and often experiment with personal photo or video projects. (blog)

From international corporations and advertising agencies, to local startups and individuals, my clients are very diverse. I strive for flexibility and delivering high quality images that create emotions and surpass expectations. My work is published in several countries.

Having lived in Europe, South America, North America, Africa, and Asia has helped me develop a unique aesthetic sense and perception skills that I use to tell stories with flair and elegance. My versatility, passion and understanding of clients needs have earned me the trust and respect of the people I work with.

I am comfortable working in French, English, Spanish and Mandarin, and available for booking worldwide!

    Words from clients

    Niko did a wonderful job working on my professional photographs. They look beautiful. I felt immediately at ease with him. Whenever I had a question or second thought during the process, I was amazed by his immediate responses, always on point, and very generous. He understood my request right away and I could feel his great empathy and desire to meet me where I stood. Working with him was so smooth and pleasant, and I will certainly use his services again.

    Niko is my trusted interior photographer. I refurbish spaces with complex angles and lighting, but Niko always captures the details and essence with a thoughtful approach to unity between the spaces. His affability and creativity mean that I can rely on him to constructively bounce ideas back and forth about how to enhance each shot. Niko is not only a delight to work with, but is also an excellent photographer who truly goes the extra mile.

    From Shanghai to Paris, I had the opportunity to work with Niko twice. Not only rigorous and professional, he is also very energizing and always brings joy and happiness in the atmosphere of the group. He knows how to listen to his clients’ needs and is easy to communicate with. In addition to photography, he is also talented in video making ! I really recommend Niko both in Shanghai and Paris.

    I hired Niko to get some portraits and product images for my watch making business. I didn't exactly know what I wanted from this shoot, but he helped me refine my needs, and propose amazing new ideas! It was a first for me, but his humor made me feel very comfortable, and he was really able to understand my craft. As a result, Niko produced high quality images that capture the essence of my work! I am still using them today, and often get compliments from my clients and peers. I highly recommend him.

    I have worked with Niko several times already and I have always been extremely satisfied with both the process and the result: He understood our objectives very quickly and proposed extremely creatives solutions. We, today, exclusively use the pictures he took for us! Highly recommend if you're looking for a Shanghai based photographer.

    Niko is a photographer with high efficiency, rigorous thinking and clear organization, which may have something to do with his engineering background. The day after the shoot, I received the photos. This kind of efficient behavior is rarely found in the photographers I worked with before. He is very good at using light to make photos full of delicate emotions. He is very patient in the process of taking photos and strives for perfection!

    I asked Nico’s help for communication material for a French umbrella brand entering China. We needed classy and high end results within a short period of time. Nico was able to deliver efficiently, and professionally. The results didn’t only reach our expectations, he was also amazing to work with during shootings, coming up with innovative ideas and making staff and models feel comfortable with a delicate sense of humor.

    I came to Niko because I needed a stock of professional fitness style photos for my website and social media. Niko provided me with photos that brought what was in my head to life. As a result, I’ve been able to use these photos on several platforms to market my business. Niko is easy to work with and produces excellent work quickly. I have photos that I will be able to use over and over. I would recommend Niko to anyone who needs photos for any marketing campaign.

    When I got in touch with Niko he was very professional. He asked thorough questions and got to know what we wanted from our session. In person, he took the time to get to know my toddler, who absolutely loved the attention and posed for beautiful pictures. Niko captured beautiful shots, some of which we decided to frame at home. I cannot recommend Niko enough. We will be hiring him again and again for more stunning family pictures.

    Niko is one of kind well-traveled photographer - travel opens up one’s mind and in this case his eyes as well as the heart. His unique qualities stand out when it comes to approaching any subject in his work and is crucial for the subjects to have complete trust and ease while being photographed. Genuine, gregarious and driven, only time will tell what images he will share with us in the future. I, for one, is excited! So don’t hesitate, be part of this legacy, book an appointment with him now.

    Niko’s personality put our family at ease and made our experience very enjoyable. My husband was hesitant to do a family shoot but by the end he was the most active and wanted to take more photos. Niko also got our photos to us promptly for review. They were amazing, so amazing in fact, it was challenging to choose which ones to order. We have highly recommended Niko to families looking for a Shanghai based photographer!

I am still very impressed with his work ethic and it is no wonder that he gained everybody’s trust with his good job! Great Shanghai based photographer.
