Wick is an independent documentary and editorial portrait photographer based in NYC.
He can be contacted for assignments anywhere at wick at wickbeavers.com or 212 774-9425.
Wick has a degree from Berkeley/Santa Cruz in Marine Bio. He has traveled the world extensively and is comfortable almost anywhere with anybody (Taliban/Isis is doubtful, Trump more so). Circumnavigated the globe with his wife and kid, surfed many of the world's best breaks, worked for Outward Bound School for several years on and off and climbed some first ascents on American big walls with pals Jeff Lowe and Mike Weiss.
His pictures have been published in many magazines such as NEWSWEEK, FORBES, the DAILY BEAST, LA PHOTOGRAPHER, ARCHITECTURE, ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST, MIAMI HERALD, NY MAGAZINE, PENTHOUSE, 32 DEGREES, BUILDER, BOCA RATON MAGAZINE, 944, TINSLEY ADVERTISING, LEXUS of GREENWICH, the WHALERS', STONINGTON and the STEAMBOAT INNS, the IOWA REVIEW, NM TOURISM, KEEPER SPRINGS WATER, ACAMS, SiTv, NSU, UNIVERSITY of MIAMI HEALTH, MENS JOURNAL, the AMERICAN ALPINE CLUB amongst many others and have festooned billboards, ad campaigns and the walls of many happy clients, as well. He has won various awards, like the Fuji Award, and he gives talks/slideshows to serious amateurs and working pro photographers.
Real people, with all their imperfections and eccentricities, fascinate him and his portraits aim to tell their stories with empathy, honor and dignity.
He now lives on the Upper West Side with his best girl Tess, a mighty fine photographer herself, (www.tesssteinkolk.com for a look) and their fine bred Pug (I'd say, save for her countenance, she is indeed a hot blooded Russian wolfhound at heart) Emmy Lou Harris.
