Nick Fancher is a portrait photographer who has shot for clients like EPSN Magazine, Ohio State University and JackThreads - and is also the subject of an inspiring video by director and cinematographer Andy Newman

Fancher, based in Ohio, talks about why he opted out of becoming a wedding photographer and has focused instead on the process of picture-making, honing his lighting techniques and trying to find his identity as a photographer.  

The video is part of a series on whywecreate.co that features candid interviews with creatives and asks them the most fundamental of questions – why they do what they do.
