Nick Helderman (1987) grew up in Leeuwarden, in the North of the Netherlands. After living in and around Amsterdam for 10+ years, he now lives in Paris and splits his time between The Netherlands and his new French home.
Nick has a strong affection for music culture and has spent many years documenting music on tour all over Europe, North America and the odd trip to Ghana and Ethiopia. He loves collaborating on album art, videos and creative portraits. Both in the studio and on location.
Currently, Nick is also involved with Le Guess Who? Festival as their video producer. Overlooking the festival’s video output and live filming. He coordinated the 2020 edition which took place in the form of a 60 hour stream.
The image below is a place holder till he finds a more recent portrait. Since the pandemic hit he has grown his hair and could now wear it in a man bun. (If he wanted to.)
