Husband and wife team, Nigel and Vicki Armes, independently developed their passions for photography and the graphic arts. From humble beginnings of capturing images with Kodak Instamatics and Polaroids as teenagers, their instruments evolved to 120 roll, 35mm, darkroom printing, and “The Arab” printing press. They first crossed paths as students at the University of London, and now, more than three decades later, are actively exploring the ultimate creative medium of digital photography and post processing techniques and re-exploring film photography by bringing new life to discarded cameras. Having worked, travelled, and photographed extensively in Europe and Asia, Armes Photography is now based in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, and specializes in travel, dance, nature, and lifestyle themes. The work of Armes Photography is at once, timeless and current, evolving with the changing world, as Nigel and Vicki adapt to new techniques in their constant pursuit to challenge themselves in the art of creating and developing photographs.
