Nicky Hellemans is a Belgian-based music photographer. She studied fine art photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp (KASKA). She released her first photography book "A Lasting Moment" in conjunction with a solo expo at Incubate Festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands in 2014. Since then she has kept busy with work for labels such as ConSouling Records and Daft Records, and as set photographer for independent short films. In the summer of 2016 she worked on location for a number of Swedish artists, a project that will continue during the summer of 2017.
Hellemans on her trade: "Besides photography, music is my everything. That's why I mainly focus on portraits of artists, band shoots, music artwork and concert photography. I'm a no-nonsense kind of girl and I try to capture my subject as it is. I like to use natural/available light and I don't do heavy post production, because how I see it, it takes away the soul of the image. I aim for the perfect imperfection."
