My name is Gene Tick. I have had a camera in my hands since I was 10 years old. The passion continued to grow throughout my life. Never without a camera.
I have worked with many renowned photographers over the years while working in the publishing industry, but always in the background. Learning, watching and listening. Eventually taking my art to the next level.
A Graduate of Northampton Community College from their photographer’s program many years into my adulthood, just because you can never stop being a student.
I have been published in magazines and have had images used for advertising. I am an instructor at the local college, teaching photography, producer of the largest photo networking events in Elizabeth City and most of all enjoy just being out there with my camera.
Photography is a passion, that is number one. When you feel the fire, the desire to do something it will come. Photography is my way of expressing my art. I will produce an image that will stimulate you more then just with a visual experience. I want your senses aroused. What does it feel like, sound like, smell like, taste like to be in that photograph in which you are looking at?
Through my prints and photo books, I invite you to bring bits of my stories into your life and home. New prints are released regularly, so check back often. If you sign up for updates, you will get notified about new prints or books, sales, and shows.
You only get one chance to capture the moment.
When you want something that stands out.

It is not always about shooting what is fun, art, or for profit, but what is needed to be seen.
Walking through New York City the day after Thanksgiving I came across this man who just wanted someone to listen to him. It was not about getting the photo, this came later after our conversation, after we talked, cried and laughed together. His story is not uncommon when a loved one falls ill and the medical bills wipe out all you have. Doing what one must do for a loved one. A story I can relate to very much so, my wife who lost her battle against cancer, and putting everything you have out there for your loved one. I needed to tell his story, not mine. His cardboard signs bring the struggle forward, many who do not understand why some of us may land up homeless with nothing left.
If I can just make one person aware of the struggles someone comes across in their lives through my photography, then just maybe I did my job.
New York City, Thanksgiving for some. others another day of just surviving.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Boudoir photography, or sensual photography, is a photographic style featuring intimate, sensual, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects in a photographic studio, bedroom or private dressing room environment, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and his or her romantic partners. It is distinct from glamour and art nude photography in that it is usually more suggestive rather than explicit in its approach to nudity and sexuality, features subjects who do not regularly model, and produces images that are not intended to be seen by a wide audience, but rather to remain under the control of the subject.
