Fine-Art Photographer Vienna / London
Dr Colin Vickers is an English fine-art photographer living in Vienna, Austria and is widely recognised as one of the world's leading fine-art nude photographers today. The emotions his pieces convey are rarely found in this genre especially considering he rarely shows faces in his pieces. His pieces are often minimalistic yet complicated and often toned with old-fashioned hues.
'I see myself as a minimalist and a perfectionist and I think this shows a lot in my work. I am heavily influenced by modern fine-art nude photographers and also by the Renaissance masters, and I inspire to bring these two genres together in order to create unique and timeless masterpieces that will look incredible on anyone's living-room wall.'
Colin was born in Lincoln, England in 1975 and moved to London at the age of 18 where he obtained his undergraduate and doctorate degree at Imperial College. In 2003, he moved to Vienna with his wife and fell in love with the city. The tragic death of their 4-year old son had a dramatic impact on his marriage and they separated in 2010. Later, he would go on to meet Ida and eventually married her in 2016. Ida is a portrait photographer and they now share a studio together in Vienna's 7th district.
'Most of my subjects are normal people and not professional models, and I will bring their personalities into my pieces. I feel this gives my photos a very personal and emotional connection.'
Colin's art started to gain attention in 2010 with his first exhibition in 2011 and since then, he has won many international awards, and his work has been featured in many magazines and can be found on display at many locations in Vienna. He is available for sittings and commissioned work and often gives workshops for local photographers/artists. He also works as a portrait, boudoir, and wedding photographer and can be booked through his photography website www.DrFoto.at
