Nick completed his trade as a diesel fitter with the Hydro Electric Commission in the late 70’s before making the bold move to follow his passion for photography. For the last 30 years he has run his own business Osborne Images, based in Hobart. OI has evolved into a 3 man family business that specialises in Photography, Video Production, Graphic Design, Large Format Printing and Project Management. Some key clients include Tourism Tasmania, University of Tasmania, Red Jelly, Banjo’s Bakery, Lark Distillery, Delicious Magazine, Dan Murphy’s, Tassal, Cascade Brewery and Tas Food Books.

Nick and the rest of the team recently completed the photography and video component of the newly formed Tasmanian Cider and Whisky trail’s. With many years in and around the Tasmanian food and hospitality industries, Nick has witnessed and contributed to its development and believes we are perfectly poised to take the title of “Australia’s essential tourist destination”.
