Nick Hoyle | Freelance Photographer | Manchester
Nick Hoyle was born in the Black Country in February 1976. He qualified as an operating department practitioner (ODP) at University Hospitals Birmingham. In 2003 he married and moved to Manchester where he lives with his wife and their two children. He continues to work as an ODP.
It was in Manchester that his passion for photography developed, as a way to capture his new family and as a release valve for the pressures of the operating room. Through volunteering at a local paper as a photographer and writer he grew as a photographer. Before long he was contributing and licensing his images through companies such as iStock and Corbis (2007-11). Most importantly, he observed and worked with other photographers, not least Tim Wallace and Bernard O’Sullivan. In 2012-13 Nick was part of a programme with the Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust exploring health and culture through the Arts. This culminated in a group photographic exhibition.
For the last few years the cameras and lenses have sat on shelves gathering dust as the demands of life necessitate. Nick is currently a second-year psychology student. This break from photography has been beneficial. Coupled with his growing knowledge of psychology, his vision and voice has become clearer than it was before.
See you in 2018!
