Michael Stone

STUDIO ASSISTANT & PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I’m Nick Ford, a freelance photographer & owner of Nick Ford Photography. Thank you for visiting our site!

Brighton born and bred, I love the City. It’s willingness to embrace diversity and creativity has had a huge influence on my upbringing and working life and I feel very lucky to be able to do a job that I love.

I studied photography and have worked in this field for more than a dozen years. I’ve worked as Senior Photographer, Gallery Manager and Photo Manager on board P&O Cruise’s ships. I was able to travel the world, visiting a vast amount of fantastic destinations including Australia, Hong Kong and Dubai. I viewed working at sea as an apprenticeship to build up my business acumen while working in a team environment and meeting some amazing life-long friends.

You may see me from time to time nipping around the City in my easy to park silver smart car, making any job possible where size really does matter!

I recognised the importance of having a physical high street presence and opened the studio on Oxford St in 2014. It was the best decision I made and I feel an established part of the Brighton photographic scene. 

 

Having Michael join me has really made a positive impact. He’s a great asset as the business continues to grow.

Biographies are really difficult to write, so I’ll leave that there. I look forward to working with you.

 

 

Hi, I’m Michael Stone, Studio Assistant at Nick Ford Photography.

I’ve know Nick since I was very young as my grandparents are neighbours to the studio. We first met when I approached him for advice on my photography when studying at GCSE level. I’ve worked with Nick on and off on an adhoc basis, helping out at events and general studio assisting, for around 4 years. This changed in January 2020 where I came to the studio to catch up with Nick and was offered a more permanent role here at the studio as Nick was getting too busy for one person to keep up with.

Like Nick, I have been lucky enough to explore many countries around the world which has allowed me to take some beautiful images.  My most recent destination being New Zealand. I sell these images on my website so feel free to check my stuff out.

I specialise in a candid and ‘documentary’ style whereas Nick’s charismatic and bubbly demeanour lends itself perfectly for the more set up and posed shots. Because of this, we cover a wide range of styles and us-cases so whatever the job is, we can fulfil your personal needs.

Photography

Be it a passport photo, corporate event or the biggest day of your life we are here to help. Professional photography is what we do. With a combined 20 years' experience in the photographic industry, we’ve been round long enough to prove we must be doing something right!

Studio

The studio has been home to many exhibitions and we've hosted some fantastic shoots with great people. It's a clean white space with the option of different coloured backdrops and a range of lighting options, customised to meet your needs.

Editing

With two studio workstations we have the ability to turnaround projects in a timely manner whilst keeping our high standards. We love to whistle while we work, and the editing process is usually accompanied by some belting ballads and disney classics.

"Nick definitely has the "eye" for a great photograph, I have had professional headshots taken and also shots for my new office. His talent is obvious and I couldn't be any happier with the results he has given me. Highly recommend him for all types of photographs."
