Meet the Artist
Sometimes referred to as a "Slim Aarons for the millennial set," Nick Mele is an East Coast-based photographer who specializes in portrait, lifestyle and interior design photography. He started his career snapping society photos for Patrick McMullan, and later spent several years documenting the lives of America's last remaining Grande Dames. With influences ranging from Douglas Friedman and Tina Barney to Wes Anderson and David LaChapelle, Nick has taken his time in developing his own unique style of work, which has been featured in a myriad of publications, including Town & Country, The New York Times, Avenue, Quest, Architectural Digest, and Vanity Fair. His fine art work is a love letter to his upbringing in traditional East Coast resort towns like Newport, RI and Palm Beach.
