About Nick Aldridge

I help businesses create portraits and visual stories that beautifully explain who they are, and what they offer.

As a creative problem-solver, with a background in photojournalism, a very broad education in media and an obsessive interest in psychology, I bring a huge range of experience and insight to visual communications, far beyond that of simply photography. 

This expresses, with depth, integrity and beautiful imagery, what my clients do and who they are.

I work with some of the largest brands, corporations and NGO's in Southern Africa, as well as creative artisanal businesses, making gorgeous photography and engaging videos.
