A full time KAP professional, adventuresome “Nico” Chorier uses Montepellier, France, as home base but wanders the world plying his trade. He has been a particular success with his strangely wonderful closeup views of the landmark Taj Mahal, in Agra, India. They brought him a measure of fame and even some fortune. (His first attempt on the Taj got him arrested, on his second go round he was backed by the local government tourist agency.) Chorier has photographed whales in Baja, Mexico, festivals in Bali, an agricultural project in Brazil, archeological sites in France.
