Distinguished photo-journalist and intrepid traveller Nick Danziger has photographed an extraordinary range of subjects; from the Queen to Ethiopia’s Coptic Christians.
In 2004 he won the World Press Award for his ‘mirror’ image portrait of Tony Blair and George W. Bush.
He has published several books, including the bestselling Danziger’s Travels – the story of his incredible journey along the ancient silk route and, more recently, Missing Lives – a haunting account of the families left bereft by the Balkan Wars.
Nick is also an experienced presenter and broadcaster whose many credits include documentaries such as AIDS: The Global Killer (Channel 4), War, Lies and Videotape (BBC) – which won the Prix Italia for the best documentary of the year – A Digital Picture of Britain (BBC), and a fascinating study of the photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue (Channel 4).
Whether recording the lives of people on the margins, or offering a new perspective on the world’s most powerful monarchs and leaders, Nick always documents his subjects’ experiences with humanity and compassion.
Versatile and inspiring, Nick is a brilliant speaker who has captivated audiences in many different contexts; from conferences for IBM, Barclays Wealth Management or Deutsche Bank, to cultural events at prestigious museums and universities.
Nick’s experiences of travelling and working in adverse conditions, including conflict zones in Afghanistan and the former Yugoslavia, make him an empowering motivational speaker for corporate audiences, while his close encounters with incredible people and places provide the perfect anecdotes for engaging and witty after-dinner speeches.
He adapts his speech to the particular demands of each client and presents his powerful photographs throughout; films can also be shown by prior arrangement and he is happy to take questions.

How a box of chalk might have changed the prospects of a classroom of 125 children. How affordable babies’ milk powder would have saved the lives of twin babies.
