Born in 1978 in Novi Ligure, Italy, his first contact with photography was strong, nice, but very short. He was eight years old when he brought the camera of his father with him, during a school trip. He took several pictures of fake dinosaurs in a Jurassic Park for children, but days after his dad told him that he could have bought nice postcards instead of wasting money in film and print. Being a sensitive child, he never touched again a camera.
In 2004 he took a degree in Aerospace Engineering and some friends gave him a compact digital camera as a present. He started taking pictures again.
In 2011 he had his first solo exhibition at the ABC Treehut Gallery in Den Haag, The Netherlands. Nico participated also in group exhibitions in Europe and USA.
His photos have been published in various magazines and several websites.
At the moment he lives in Amersfoort, The Netherlands.
