Biographies

Nick Steidl took up photography as a young boy and was trained in his grandfather’s darkroom. He became Richard Branson’s photographic editor on Student magazine and was one of the top exhibits in the Queen Magazine/J & B fashion competition in 1968. After pursuing a different career he has now returned to photography and has had various commissions and exhibitions in London.



Louise Steidl trained as a graphic designer at St Martins School of Art. After qualifying she initially worked for a small design studio, and then went on to work at the BBC. In recent years she has been able to return to painting. She attended a botanical painting course at the English Gardening School, and has since continued to explore this genre.
