Nick Higgins; Director of Photography
Nick has spent the best part of the last three decades living everywhere except his Scottish birthplace. Highlights have been a half dozen years in Arabia, almost as many in Hong Kong, a couple in Rio De Janeiro and a decade flitting between a 5 acre desert homestead near the Joshua Tree National Park and Los Angeles.
Nick has had the pleasure of collaborating on several projects with Two time Academy Award Nominee Lucy Walker including THE CRASH REEL (Sundance 2013), COUNTDOWN TO ZERO (Sundance 2010) and 3 short documentaries about Olympic athletes, the highlight being THE SECRETS OF THE MONGOLIAN ARCHERS.
Other notable collaborations include Bess Kargman's ballet documentary FIRST POSITION (TIFF 2011; IFC/Sundance Selects) and THE COACH (TriBeCa 2013). Nick has also shot on numerous projects with Academy Award Nominee Morgan Spurlock including COMICON (TIFF 2011) and A DAY IN THE LIFE. In addition to Independent feature documentaries Nick is a frequent DP on NAT GEO science shows, documentary style commercials and he's a founding member of THE DEPARTMENT OF EXPANSION.
