My Story

NIC BISSEKER - AWARD-WINNING East grinstead PHOTOGRAPHER West sussex photography


I’m Nic Bisseker, an award winning photographer based in Dormans Park (near East Grinstead) working across Sussex, Surrey and Kent.

I feel so honoured to be running my business .   Never for one minute is it easy, but I love it! I strive to create photographs of the highest quality in friendly, fun and relaxed environments and my clients love that my service is second to none.

In 2020 I qualified as a Master Photographer with the Master Photography Association.  My Licentiate Panel in Pet Portraits can be seen below and I am thrilled that it also won Best Licentiate Panel with the MPA for 2020 at their National Awards!

I have won many awards with the Guild of Photographers, and the Master Photography Association (“MPA”)  and most recently a whopping 11 of my images went onto receive Merits in the final of the 2020 MPA Print Competition.

Photography just drives me; knowing I have got the shot, that second of emotion or action captured behind my lens, then sharing your excitement and happiness with you when you see the finished images and later the finished products. That’s when clients feel so thrilled they could burst!


 I started work as a solicitor in the city after graduating with a Law degree. After a few years I realised it wasn’t for me.

I wanted to work with children and do something more practical and creative so I re-qualified as a primary school teacher and thoroughly enjoyed this new career until having two little ones of my own.

I had always enjoyed taking photographs and knew I had an eye for it (I won’t tell you how many packs of film I shot during my gap year travels in Australia and New Zealand!) but I was frustrated that I didn’t have the skills to create the images I had in my mind.

We can not recommend Nic highly enough. We booked a Christmas mini shoot for our two girls and the youngest was less than co-operative! Nic was so patient and understanding and didn’t give up until she had taken some beautiful pictures of both of our girls. The results are stunning and will be treasured forever. Thank you.”


Nic’s professionalism and calmness and endless patience have given me some stunning photos…I will definitely be recommending to all my family and friends!!”


Nic was very professional on the day of the shoot and worked really hard to get some great shots. My Dad was so pleased how easy it all was and how comfortable he felt.  The photos are absolutely stunning and I highly recommend Nic.”

ppI started photographing landscapes, but soon found people and animals were the subjects I most enjoyed and so my journey to become a professional photographer began travelling the length and breadth of the country to follow the best teachers in their field.

Nic Bisseker Photography was launched at the end of 2015 and since then it has grown from dog photography to families and children.

I continue to strive for excellence and regularly enter national photographic competitions throughout the year.  Below you can see just a few of my award winning images and a video slideshow of my 2020 winning qualification panel with the MPA.

When I’m not photographing little people, families and their dogs I spend a lot of time on dog walks with Mabel and Jasper. Mabel is a Ridgeback and Jasper a Golden Retriever.  I have two teens so of course life is never quiet!  Exercise has become very important to me in my 40’s and I can often be found on my outside decking with my weights and yoga mat.  I also like to keep things real so you can often find me chilling with a glass of wine at the end of a long day.

I cover a variety of photography so please sit back, grab a cup of tea and take a look around my site, or get in touch if you would like to talk about your ideas.
