A message from the President of Nicholas Price Enterprises If you are looking for a unique approach to your next campaign or want to establish, re-think or extend on your brand image, or have captured on film, your story or legacy, you have come to the right place. For twenty years I have had the privilege of working with and exclusively representing, master fine art photographer Nicholas A. Price. From the days when we were both involved with the international business and government scene – my client a former venture-capitalist and I, a consultant that gave up my group of clients and successful business to step into the exciting and challenging world of the visual arts when I chose to represent a single client, Nicholas A. Price who chose to depart a success from the corporate world and become an independent fine art photographer and artist. From day one I have always believed that my client’s work and creative process to be very unique. Finding the world of art galleries and the usual dealer/artist relationship personally unchallenging, I maintained a totally business-like approach outside of the world of traditional artists, galleries and dealers, ensuring that my client’s work extended beyond just the photograph in a more rewarding and global environment. His messages and style of photography appeared to be able to reach out and touch everyone at every level in every country. Nicholas Price’s photographs tell a story. An important story told in a candid and traditional style through the use of a film medium and without any digital manipulation or false additions. It is exciting to be able to have a client with a universal language and unique application without the need for words or excessive text!

and a corporate book that highlight s the undertaking the client’s legacy of the brand and/or story. These works are a valuable and evergreen asset and ROI to the client’s investment. This is also the part our client’s love best because the collection and book(s) can be used for live interaction at special events, exhibitions, conferences, education outreach, lobbying, corporate gifts, customer/client relations, appreciation events etc. 4. Deadlines are not an issue. Although Nicholas works in film we can quickly turn around the photographs into digital outputs and other formats enabling quick decisions and on time delivery. Clients notice the output maintains an even higher quality than a photograph originally taken by a digital photographer because film scanned will always have the highest number of pixels, best quality and delivery at the largest sizes that current technologies cannot match. 5. You are investing in the skill and perspective of the artist and the assignment in hand – not for the diva expenses or for the entourage. The client is the focus here. Nicholas may have a single and unobtrusive assistant around for carrying his equipment or re-ensuring documentation and releases are approved prior to the actual shoot. Nicholas works in a candid style, meaning his presence must not be felt or be distracting to the subject if he is to get the best shot (really important in high security, sensitive or performance situations( see; Cleared Hot!, Dance In Focus, Partnerships With Nature) 6. Nicholas can either work as an individual or as a team player, fully co-operating with your art director, creative team and agency. A businessman himself, Nicholas understands the importance of keeping on time, on budget and most importantly, having the flexibility to adapt to mostly last minute and unexpected situations. To read more about why Nicholas Price should be your choice for your corporate story, please look at our commission’s page on our web site.

Our commissioning clients were able to utilize Nicholas’ talent in more ways than one and in the following ways;

I hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to seeing you all again soon!

1. When a client commissions Nicholas Price for his photography, it is more than just another ad or marketing campaign. It is a unique and original perspective of the clients brand and/or message.

Warmest Regards,

2. As a client, Nicholas Price is creating YOUR Story and YOUR Legacy at the same time. 3. As a “fine art photographer” each commission includes a collection of museum quality fine art prints of the photographs 4

I T I S A N H O N O R and my greatest pleasure to take up the gauntlet as editor of IN Focus magazine from Ms. Price. These are very big shoes to fill and I wish to continue the work Grace initiated over 5 years ago. A generous and elegant lady with a unique business mind, Grace Price has led our team and has taught us the importance of integrity, quality and patience in helping us get IN Focus magazine to where we are today, her last regonition bestowed by Digital Magazine’s recognition of Nicholas Price as Photographer of The Year for IN Focus Magazine. Grace has not entirely left us. She maintains her role in an advisory capacity to oversee the IN Focus magazine and editorial team as we build further on our successful publication and continue maintaining the highest respect and careful management of the Nicholas Price brand. We are extremely fortunate to have access to the Nicholas Price Archives, where I personally can attest that the extensive collections are so beautiful to view, the photography original and cutting edge, that in my 25 years of being involved with the visual arts leaves me breathless everytime I journey into the environment where this precious legacy is kept. I also am fortunate to have seen and touched the many other artistic endeavors of Nicholas Price’s paintings and sculptures – a truly modern renaisance man. I would feel it to be an injustice to our readers and to the artist himself if I was not able to showcase some of his sculpture and paintings that have graced the inside and outside of several important buildings, have been acquired or commissioned for collections of many- a-fine institution’s, corporations and collector’s, private and public spaces. I hope that you will enjoy our journey exploring the contemporary works and fine art photography of Nicholas A. Price into the next decade, and trust that we will all be able to learn and grow from such a wonderful and intimate education that will enrich our cultural experience for generations to come.

Half Full Or Half Empty? Compiled by Simone Harris, curated by Nicholas Price

Due to the popular demand from our readers to see more of Nicholas Price’s macrophotography skills that graced the cover of our November Anniversary 2010 issue, we are thrilled to bring you another of Nicholas Price’s untamed models, who couldn’t resist a quick dive in the glass of water that was placed on a desk inside his studio. Rather than restrain the antics of the creature’s natural drive to play in a familiar environment, Price couldn’t resist the opportunity to capture the toad’s antics on film in his usual candid manner with his usual stunning results.
