A Los Angeles native, Nicolas Bates attempts to feather the line between refined and genuine, creating work that is honest of his subjects—keeping their authentic nature and likeness—all the while producing clean, timeless imagery.

Nicolas is also an avid film shooter, shooting in both medium format and 35mm film stocks.

Nicolas is based in Los Angeles, but is travel-ready, and loves to work up and down the west coast.
