Wick is a fine artist and editorial portrait photographer based in NYC specializing in shooting great pictures of cool people.
His portraits strip the masks of self consciousness, bare the elemental truth of the subject, are frequently shockingly intimate and offer the viewer entrance into the trilogue between the subject, the viewer and the photographer. Takes some life experience outside being a technician with a good camera to embrace all that.
Wick sailed around the world, worked for Outward Bound school, has surfed many of the world's best breaks and has partnered with some really great people climbing mainly in the Southwest, has had a sheep farm in Maine and has traveled extensively.
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.
Real people, with all their imperfections and eccentricities, fascinate him and his portraits aim to tell their stories with empathy, honor and dignity.
