Just another photographer being awesome in NYC.

I'm a guy who loves travel, adventure, and coffee.
I love to use medium format film because it's oh so delicious.
I also enjoy using polaroid, but who can afford that shit?
Don't worry, I do digital too.

I aim to take photos that more resemble memories than enhance them. Maybe they're imperfect, out of focus, fuzzy around the edges; maybe they're grainy or shot with a plastic lens, but the end result is something I can look at and recall so much more than is in the photo because the photo evokes something that is already within me and maybe in you too.

    Each of his photographs are unique and have thought put into them -doesn't get any better than that!
    He is definitely the reason why I started my 365 Project. He always made the project look so fun and exciting!

    "nick is a genius.
    his stream is addicting- it's so incredible.
    he posseses an unbelievable amount of talent and has a very artistic eye. his 365 was purely wonderful. it had such originality and personality!
    his mind is an innonative, intricately wound machine. flickr is a collection of his well-thought concepts portrayed in frames of magical goodness.

    "for me, nick today is more like "nick everyday" because every single day i look at his photo stream. and everyday one of two things happens: 1] i am dumbfounded by how brilliantly creative he is, or, 2] i am sorely distressed because there isnt a new photo up. either way, nick is an amazing guy, and like everyone else in the entire world has already said as well, he has inspired me so so so much. today he finished his 365 project, and i couldnt have more mixed feelings. good luck in norway nick :]"

    first of all im really filled with admiration for his 365 days Project. (maybe its because i did start it but couldnt continued just like most of people) its really diffucult to show different emotions in different photos everyday. but he does it with a super way. keep going and make our day bright:)"

    "What can I say about Nick Today? Nick Counts is an incredible man (wow, no longer an adolescent) who is hnest and creative with his photography. He has this desired power of adding magic to the simplest aspects of life (and one day I will steal his magical formula and be as popular as he is on flickr-haha, yeah right). He takes pride in his pictures as he should. His 365 project is simply beautiful and has me coming back for more :)"

    "To the 2008-2009 Northwestern University Board of Admissions,
    I whole-heartedly recommend Nicholas Counts as a candidate for enrollment without the slightest hesitation. Nick has many diverse talents, to describe all of which would be impossible in the allotted space and time, so I have chosen those that I feel most highlight how he would contribute to your esteemed institution. To begin with, Nick has a brilliantly innovative mind. He is always ready to tackle a challenging situation, and he is perpetually devising creative and thought-provoking ideas of his own. Secondly, his exploration and execution of these ideas are always "outside-the-box," original, and flawlessly effective in communicating to others. The point I want to emphasize most, however, is that in addition to his astounding intellect and refreshing originality, Mr. Counts possesses an inspiring optimism and passion for life and the people he meets along the way which infects everyone who is lucky enough to cross his path. His commitment to generosity and living compassionately would be assets to any establishment of higher education. I therefore enthusiastically recommend Nick to the Board, and I sincerely hope you find him as rare and valuable a gem as I have.
    Sincerely,
    Alexandra Puchalla"

    "Nick never seems to run out of ideas, he always trying something new, a new technique or a new style. I come to his site when I need some inspiration. In addition, he always leaves really nice comments. I usually wait a few weeks, and then come back to his site to see what new things he has come up with, and I'm always amazed by the diversity of each picture. This was the first testimonial I have ever written for anybody, because i never felt the urge to write one until now. Nick, keep up the incredible work! :D"

    "Nick is absolutely fantastic in a billion different ways. He's so creative and innovative -- the kind of amazing that makes you want to pick up a camera yourself and push your own artistic boundaries. His talent seems to have realms of it's own that grow at such a rapid speed, it's so amazing to watch him impress and awe his audience time and time again. I utterly adore him. Nick is an orchestra of talent that never fails to completely inspire."

If he didn't live miles & miles away I would probablly bug him constantly to go on photo extravaganza adventures with me and unhesitantly accept his proposal for marriage. oh also he's got a stellllllar taste in music & completes me musically. basically he's the perfect human being with the perfect hamster end of story."

    You're also finding the perfect balance-contrast on your photos. I have to say that you're really attentive.

I think it's a treat to see his photos in my contacts recently added photos. He's very good about replying to questions asked on his pictures, or even just comments made, it's really nice to have such personalized gratitude shown. He is very good at photoshopping, some people don't use it to their advantage, when Nick uses it, he uses it right =D. Nick has a beautiful photostream!"
