Interview: Nick Summers
What sparked your interest in photography? Did you start by taking it in high school like a lot of people?
Name: Nicholas Summers
Location: Kansas City, Kansas
Medium: Photography, film and digital
When working with color or light, which intrigues you the most?
Light, its what makes a photograph. The way light can shape the mood of picture never ceases to amaze me.
I took my first photo class as a senior in high school. That got me started, and I began to shoot outside of class and doing my own thing. Thankfully I had an amazing photo teacher who urged me to pursue photo.
What are more interesting subjects, people or inanimate objects?
They're both amazing subjects, but people are fascinating, all of my people pictures are candid. I love getting a picture of someone when they don't realize, I believe its the only way to get true emotion.
Do you enjoy working more with color photographs or black and white?
It's hard to make a decision. I'm really torn between the two. I honestly cannot pick between the two.
