Based in the heart of Snowdonia, Nick Livesey is a respected mountain photographer. His love for photography began as a hill walker and climber, using a compact camera to record his adventures. He soon found recognition for his images at the galleries and in 2012 he won the Winter Walking and Scrambling categories, and came third overall, in the UKC/UKH Mountain Photography Awards.

In the same year he had three images shortlisted
in the Landscape Photographer of the Year (LPOTY) competition, one of which was commended and was included in the book, Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 6.
