Nicholas Muecke

Nicholas is a director and photographer based in Adelaide, South Australia.

Conceptual and craft-forward, his fascination with the ways in which we connect to, and resolve, the world around us has brought about an eclectic mixture of projects. His work is often human-forward and ambitious, utilising composition and colour to draw an audience into the world of his characters.

Nicholas began his career as a Director’s Assistant at production company, FINCH, where he cultivated his craft learning from world-class directors and producers, including Michael Gracy, Jared Clayton, Tom Kuntz and Paola Morabito.

Since, Nicholas has directed work for Brand SA, Department of Premier and Cabinet (SA), Tourism Australia, ADF Navy, Rin Models, St John’s Ambulance, and collaborated with Facebook and RM Williams through education start-up Creatable.

His music video work for Tkay Maidza’s 24K was nominated for Best Music Video at the ARIA’s, and Divebar Youth’s In The Hive was long listed for the highly acclaimed 1.4 Awards (In The Making). His first short film, Rock Paper Scissors, was nominated for Young Australian Filmmaker of the Year at Byron Bay International Film Festival.

Nicholas is available for work across Australia.
