I'm Nick Rainer, a 22 year old photographer based in Vienna, Austria.
I started taking photos as a hobby while I was in school. Shooting nightclubs and festivals for fun on the weekends taught me the basics of photography and working in less than optimal conditions.
After completing my mandatory military service at Austria’s Armed Forces I was offered a job as a photographer. During that time I got to work with high ranking officials and combat forces, learned to work in high stress environments, how to engage with VIP‘s and sleep in uncomfortable places. After leaving the army in 2018 I decided to make my dream to shoot Artists and Festivals full time a reality. Giving up the securities of employment to work for myself was one of the biggest risks I have ever taken but I‘ve now photographed artists such as Timmy Trumpet, Armin Van Buuren, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike and many more at some of the world’s biggest EDM stages like Tomorrowland, Electric Love Festival and Balaton Sound in over 30 countries all around the world.
Over the past couple of years I also found a passion for shooting architecture and working with brands in the commercial sector like Red Bull, Rimowa, Absolut Vodka and many more.
