Today, we have our first ever Frames coming in from Tasmania, courtesy of 20-year-old talent Nick Green. Having been diagnosed with severe depression in his early teens, Nick picked up a camera and began documenting the world around him, calling photography his saving grace. “I’ve used photography as a creative outlet to experience the world and the adventures and beauty it has to offer, often forcing myself to get out of the house and to go on an adventure, shoot the surf or get up early to watch the sunrise, hoping to capture something beautiful.”
Now, he’s compiled a considerable portfolio of striking images from around the world, showing intimate moments alongside Mother Nature. Still, he says that “I certainly have photography a lot to thank for, but no way is that the sole reason that my happiness is where its at today. I got where I am now because I didn’t give up on myself and you shouldn’t either.”

This was on the morning of our college exams, we thought getting up for sunrise and jumping off some rocks would help us prepare. It didn’t
