Nick Burger is an accidental photo-documentarian, snapping photos from the 1950s to now, albeit by way of his smartphone. Capturing unpretentious images of primarily gay men, prostitutes, artists, and attractive friends. Nick was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, raised in Kentucky, with his formative years in Madison, Wisconsin. Burger studied art history at U of W. As a young man with a libidinous penchant for capturing moments of beautiful men prompted his passion for photography.

He took life head-on when he moved to Southern California in 1976 with his mother in tow, where he honed his skills by working at a camera shop in Orange County. His friendly and genial ways worked to forge long-lasting friendships and the confidence of all his would-be models. His legacy will leave a treasure-trove of photographs of primarily young men in their prime, pre AIDS and post AIDS Scourge. Nick is retired and enjoys a quiet life in West Hollywood that include long walks with an occasional photoshoot here and there.
