Nicolai Amter

Creativity is a wild mind with a disciplined eye.

I love to take the creative lead and inspire others and believe that collaboration generate the best results. I’m as strong in the pitch room as on the shoot and if needed, I can use most cameras and software tools.

I’ve developed, designed and produced promos, graphics, image campaigns and channel launches for networks like MTV, Discovery Networks and Disney. Made videos for fashion labels, and documentaries in Africa for clients like National Geographic Channel and British Council.

Combining my passion for music and photography I’ve shot portraits and music videos for London indie bands and spent time shooting live and behind the scenes photography for The 405 music blog.

When I’m not checking out interesting new bands, you’ll often find me roaming the streets on the hunt for the perfect shot with one of my many old cameras.
