Born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia, lifestyle, portrait and fashion photographer Nick Garcia has been surrounded by photography, cameras, lenses and a sensitivity to art his whole life. He began his training with his father, renowned Colombian photographer Enrique Garcia. Garcia, based in Miami with his BlindLight Studio, has become a favorite among editors and creatives for his ability to understand the intricacies of powerful images. His passion for both architecture and fashion give him a signature edge for image composition.
Miami-based photographer Nick Garcia is a master of capturing the intuitive, the sensitive and the provocative. Recently, he got to show off those photography skills for two stories he shot over a seven-day period for Citi’s new campaign #ProgressMakers that appeared on the Huffington Post. The concept behind the Citi #ProgressMakers campaign was to show national prominent figures with diverse backgrounds and occupations in New York City and San Francisco and how their first jobs helped to develop them into the success stories they are today. The #ProgressMakers concept was easy for Garcia to relate to and to create visually, as he remembered his own early where he started as an apprentice in his father’s photo lab in Barranquilla, Columbia, where he had to cut thousands of photos, learn reproduction and attention to detail.
