Nic Walker first picked up a camera aged 23, after deciding that a career in marketing was not for him. He studied commercial photography in Canberra, then moved to Sydney, where he landed a job doing picture research at The Australian Financial Review (AFR). He worked as a staff photographer, working his way up to taking cover story portraits for The AFR Magazine and The Good Weekend. Nic now operates as a freelance photographer in Sydney. His work regularly features in Sunday Life magazine, Spectrum, and across the news and feature pages of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, AFR, The Australian, and The Australian Magazine. He has won numerous awards including two Walkleys. His photographic subjects have included prime ministers Bob Hawke, Paul Keating, Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Tony Abbott, and Malcolm Turnbull; Australia’s richest businesspeople: Bob Pratt, Frank Lowy, and Harry Triguboff; and cultural figures including Marina Abramovic, Cate Blanchett, Melissa McCarthy, and Willem Dafoe.
