Nick Saglimbeni

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Nick Saglimbeni moved to Los Angeles to pursue cinematography at the top-ranked USC School of Cinema. Shortly after graduation, Nick opened SlickforceStudio in downtown LA. Clients quickly responded to the cinematic nature of Nick’s photography, and Slickforce soon became one of the hottest studios in Los Angeles. True to the studio’s motto, “You. Perfected.™” Nick’s clients enjoy a photographic experience like none other, including state-of-the-art image capture, signature retouching & compositing techniques, and an exciting yet stress-free environment. In December of 2009, after less than 5 years in as a magazine photographer, Nick photographed his 100th magazine cover. That same year, he won the Blackberry Small Business Award for development of signature retouching techniques. The National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) has awarded Nick with three Grand Prize GURU Awards, in photography, retouching, and compositing. In 2010, Nick released his long-awaited “Mastering Retouching” series, which sold out its initial run during the pre-order phase. It continues to be one of the most popular retouching tutorials ever created. He then collaborated with art director Clint Davis for the follow-up series, “Mastering Compositing.” Based on overwhelming requests from aspiring photographers, Nick also created the first PhotoKamp™ workshop in 2010. In August 2011, Nick Saglimbeni created and launched WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful, the first commercial magazine entirely photographed and designed in 3D. His advancements in 3D photography won him several awards, including Grand Prize in 3D at the Sony World Photography Awards in 2012. Nick currently photographs commercial campaigns for companies such as Sears, Skechers, Wacom, Kardashian Kollection, Nuvo and more. His work has been featured on The View, Larry King Live, The Huffington Post, Keeping Up with Kardashians, E! News, The Soup, and countless others. He is heavily involved in the photography of several charity campaigns, including Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA), The Epilepsy Foundation, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). In late 2012, Nick created the photography/comic-book hybrid project, SlickforceGirl, which features artistic depictions of empowered female heroes fighting for good. A portion of artwork sales from SlickforceGirl aid the fight against breast cancer as well as other select causes. Visit for more info.
