Hi I'm Nicola Dove

I've been working on feature films for 20 years. I've worked on comedy, drama, and action films, including the most recent 007 film, No Time To Die.

A member of the SMPSP – the Society of Motion Picture Stills Photographers, I lived in the UK for sixteen years and am currently based in New Zealand, where I'm originally from.

Learn firsthand how I went from shooting brides to blockbusters!

“I am excited to share some of that hard-won knowledge with photographers keen to break into the film industry”.
