Nick Dempsey Photography

Nick Dempsey is a 3 times Olympic medal winning windsurfer, and one of the UK’s leading water sports photographers.

Alongside epic action shots, Nick adds warmth to a subject that can often feel a bit too cold and technical. People. Detail. The human elements that add character to a subject. Nick’s style naturally lends itself to lifestyle projects and commissions.

Nick has worked with some of the biggest companies in the industry, and will be shooting at the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

"Having worked with Nick as an Athlete ambassador for 12 years we were a little apprehensive of hiring him as a newly professional photographer. We had only known him as an Olympic Windsuffer! He massively surprised us all and far exceeded our expectations. Professional, fast and very well researched. You can tell he doen't just turn up for the job unprepared. He's a super talented photographer who works brilliantly with the sailors and works magic with the cars."

"The good thing about Nick is he can do it all, fast and professional. He knows what works and didn't waste any time. The sailors are busy and training hard and his ability to get the right shot in the limited time was amazing. What surprised us most were his fashion images, they were just spot on."
