About Nick

Hello, I’m Nick and I live in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. I’m an outdoor enthusiast into Hillwalking, climbing, winter mountaineering and I’m extremely passionate about Britain’s natural heritage.

I’m also passionate about sharing and celebrating our wonderful landscapes through the medium of photography and I hope my love for them shines through in my work.

I try to reply to as many comments as I can but living a hectic life sometimes means I fall behind! I appreciate each and every one of them though 🙂

April 2012 – I came third over all and won two categories in the UKClimbing/UKHillwalking.com Mountain Photography Awards

March 2012-I have secured my first cover shot for Summit, the official magazine of the British Mountaineering Council

August 2012 Three images shortlisted in the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition

  1. Hi Nick,
    I’m a member of the Snowdonia Society, retired PE teacher in Plymouth, originally from the Rhondda Valleys.
    I’ve taken groups of pupils, family & friends to Snowdonia since the late ’70s and stood on Crib Goch many times but never managed a dawn photo like yours on the cover of the Spring issue of the Society magazine. Are your shots available for sale?
    I’m coming up to Snowdonia this weekend, unfortunately I’ve been diagnosed with something nasty in my hip so I’m not very mobile but intend to have a ‘good one’.
    Look forward to your reply.

    • Hi Howell,

      Thank you for your very kind words. I do hope you make the most of your visit despite you hip problems.

      My work is for sale in the Soul of Snowdonia gallery which is hosted by the Moel Siabod Cafe in Capel Curig. I’ll be working in the cafe all weekend so perhaps we might get to say hello if you come to have a look.

      The Crib Goch dawn shot is in fact a crop of a larger panoramic that I shot that morning, we usually have it stock but I’m not sure we’ll have one this weekend. However, there a plenty more to look at!

      All the best


  2. Hi Nick
    I don’t know what happened but I missed your reply, probably too busy packing gear to travel on May 26th other wise I would have made the effort to call in the Siabod Cafe to see you. My mate from the Rhondda was actually in there waiting for me on the Saturday & then we visited the lady who runs the bunkhouse just over Pont Cyfyng that we’ve used for many years for my school & family groups.

    We were enroute to my cousin’s house in Bangor where we were staying and we had a really good weekend in spite of my limitations.

    The National Park loaned me their ‘Tramper’ for the Sunday to go up the Miners Track to Llyn Llydaw with all the family, baby included. Monday we moved into the Pen y Gwryd, I’ve had many a pint & taken groups in there since the ’70’s but 1st time I’ve ever stayed there, great experience. Tuesday another 1st timer, on the Snowdon Mountain Railway, worth the experience in my condition, with a sympathetic booking clerk who allowed me to stay on the summit for an hour or so. If I’d have gone to the Siabod Cafe to meet my mate & seen you I’d have capped it all.

    So it looks like we’ll have to converse online about the Crib Goch panorama shot on-line.

    Is it possible for you to show me the whole shot & let me know what sizes & prices you offer.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks a lot.

    Howell Phillips
