Melvin Nicholson

I am an established full time, professional landscape photographer based in Preston, Lancashire.

I offer one day and multi-day workshops in various locations throughout the UK. I also offer international workshops in New Zealand, Iceland, the Dolomites and Lofoten.

I select some of the most photogenic and dramatic landscape locations for my UK workshops, including the Lake District, Northumberland and my Scottish favourites including Glencoe, Assynt and Inverpolly, the Isle of Skye and the ever popular Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

My work has been commended in several major competitions, and displayed in exhibitions nationwide. My acclaimed image ‘Fogbow’, has been published in a variety of magazines including National Geographic and featured on several news and media channels worldwide.

With many years experience as a professional photographer and running both group workshops and personalised 1-2-1 tuition, I am well qualified to help improve your photography skills, whatever your current level.

Workshop Testimonials

New Zealand Photo Tour – September 2018

“I joined Melvin on his New Zealand Recce Tour in September 2018. It’s a country that has been at the top of my list to photograph for many many years – well it is one of the most desirable countries on earth to photograph, and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

I joined Melvin in Sydney and then flew into Christchurch and from the outset it was clear he was very passionate about his approach to his work. This was a thirteen day trip with so many locations on the itinerary which had been meticulously researched prior to the trip. 

I really can’t praise Melvin enough for the meticulous work in preparing this trip – from locations, hotels, meals, transport and his infectious humour! The memories of this trip I will cherish for ever”.

Dolomites, Italy Workshop, October 2018

“If you want some fun, adventure, fantastic scenery and great photographic opportunities then I would strongly recommend that you go on a photographic workshop/tour with Melvin Nicholson to the Dolomites. This 6 day tour had everything and Melvin’s organisation, planning and research were second to none. However he was always happy to make changes in order that we got the best out of the light and the weather.

The accommodation and food was first rate and with a great bunch of fellow photographers, along with Melvin’s wit and bonhomie you can’t fail to have a great time and come back with some fabulous photographs.

I can’t recommend this tour too highly”.
