Nicolas Blouin was born in Montreal, Quebec. When he was six years old, his family moved to Shediac, New Brunswick where he still resides today.
Nicolas took a serious interest in photography in late 2013. Macro and minimalist photography are what interested him at first, but in the fall of 2015, he started exploring and gaining an appreciation for portrait photography.
In November 2015, his portrait photo of a young model placed second in the 12-to-15-year-old category for best commercial print at the 10th annual Atlantic Top Model and Actor competition hosted by Façade International.
As a member of the Moncton Focus Camera Club for the 2015-2016 season, his photos placed first in four of the six club competitions. Despite no longer participating in its competitions, he remains a proud member of the club.
Over the next few years, his love of music naturally brought him to photographing various music acts, such as Def Leppard, Our Lady Peace, Bush, Colin James and Corey Hart.
