I really loved shooting with Nick! He was very kind and wonderful to work with. Ideas, location, and details were all laid out prior to shooting so we were ready to go once I got there! We shot 4 full sets as well as some bonus footage all within a couple of hours. All the work came out beautifully and quickly and I would definitely recommend others work with him. You won’t be disappointed!! All around fantastic time and work
I first shot with Nick in April 2019 alongside a model, Amanda, that has worked with him multiple times! I was very nervous because I have never modeled before or even thought about it. But he made it easy and comfortable for my VERY FIRST TIME. Nick is very easy going and allows you to be comfortable in your own skin! Coming from someone who has never been confident in myself, Nick was one of the biggest pushes for me to rock it in an industry that pushes the sexiness and confidence.
My second shoot with Nick was amazing!! I loved every minute of it! We worked on hitting angles that I have worked so hard to get, as well as hyping me up the entire shoot! This caused me to just as I quote “Work the camera!” My confidence just soared through the roof! It’s not easy being in front of a camera, but if there is one thing I can take from working with Nick will build you up and bring out the fierce women that has always been in you!
From start to finish my experience working with Nick was professional, collaborative, and engaging. Prior to shooting we discussed themes, limits and desired concepts to ensure we were both on the same page. When I arrived he was already setup and ready to go, yay! After some chitchat he took time to communicate thoroughly over what will be shot, and again clarified any limitations on body parts I did not want shot. We both brought our A game and zoomed through 4 full sets in roughly 90mins!! His work is clean, composition is on point, and the sets all came back well within reasonable limits. Above all else, Nick is my friend!! He’s super down to earth, relatable, and effortlessly allows his models to feel comfortable within minutes of meeting. I rave to all my fellow models about him and I honestly can’t wait to shoot again!!
"He is so laidback, so fun to be around, and sooo respectful. He asked permission every single time he wanted to adjust something for the shot.
Given the chance, I would absolutely work w/ him again & hope to do so! 11/10 recommend "

The images you take are crystal clear. Your photography and editing skills are always on point. It's important for a photographer to understand what the correct lighting and angles are for any subject, and you have an excellent grasp of that. On top of all that, you are by far the quickest photographer I have ever shot with. You get sets back to me in just a few days. I hope to continue working with you and creating amazing work. <3
Anytime I shoot with Nick, it’s always a great shoot. The communication, styles, direction, visions, and pictures delivered are always amazing. His passion shows in his work. His pictures come out beautiful every time. He is professional, funny, and if you aren’t sure what to do, he will help you. He is one of the best in The Chicago area, and if I could I would shoot with him every week, I would. I have shot with over 100 photographers, and haven’t met another photographer that can shoot anything from babies to couples, to models. Very versatile.
Nick makes everything so easy and fun ! It is always a pleasure to work with him . His photoshoots will always make you feel so comfortable! There’s never a dull moment throughout the photoshoot ! The best part is when you get his final images .... his magic on your photos will definitely leave you speechless and will make you feel more beautiful then every!
All I have to say is every time I work with nick he leaves me speechless. You can truly see how much work and effort he puts into his pictures! The eye he has for detail is amazing! I love working with him . He makes sure his model is always comfortable with her surroundings.
Nick is also very charismatic! Which makes the whole shoot fun! Whenever he tells me about a new idea for a shoot I get so excited because of how comfortable you feel around him. Immediately you get in your zone and don't have to worry about being under the pressure to look perfect! In the end like I said the pictures always come out looking astonishing!
Thanks so much nick! I always love your work.

Nick at Peacock Eye Photography has quickly become my favorite photographer to work with-he is incredible!

*Update 4th Session: Carly: Just got my images back from my fourth shoot with Nick at Peacock Eye Photography and I have to say every time we shoot together it gets better and better! I love every time I've worked with him and each time we do a new shoot it becomes my favorite shoot ever. I have modeled on and off for 12 years and have shot with many talented photographers over the years and Nick has become my favorite to work with, he never disappoints! He has a special eye for detail that a lot of other photographers don't, yet he is a calm, easy guy to work with, a true professional, never rude or demanding! Even a first time client who has never had a professional photoshoot would be incredibly lucky to hire him, he is the best in the Chicago area and I recommend him to EVERYONE!

Quirky and fun, each create an environment that is comfortable, relaxing, and very much like the warm feeling of being home. Nick’s expertise and guidance allowed for me to feel an increased level of confidence in front of the camera. Sara’s skill set transformed my look and also boost my confidence immensely!

Nick is one of the most professional, well organized and passionately energized photographers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He brought such a bright energy to the set, it was easy to feel comfortable. It was a lovely experience to be in front of his lens and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any and all looking for an amazing artist and photographer - he's the guy.

Working with Nick was a great learning experience for me! He really knew what he was talking about when it came to modeling and photography, he's great! Very welcoming and easy to work with. I would recommend Peacock Photography to others!
Nick Peacock is an absolute treasure to work with. After every session with him I feel uplifted, inspired and ready to work again. His encouragement to me as a model has been thought provoking. His images are always masterfully shot and edited. And he's a great human to hang out with. Shooting with him is always incredibly fun. His easy-going demeanor helps me to push my limits and try new things- because I know that with him behind the lens it will look fantastic. He is the reason I am now published- so to all you models out there- he is your dude. Hit him up, call him, hire him- because Peacock Photography is who you can trust in this business.

- Nina Hernandez
My set with Peacock Eye Photography was all fun, good vibes and spontaneous! When I saw the final images...Omg I love the pictures they're so perfect thank you sooooo much Peacock Eye Photography!
Nick is by far my favorite photographer to work with. First off, he is extremely professional and skilled. I received a detailed itinerary of our first shoot, and I loved how his studio was equipped with mirrors and a monitor to show the pictures taken! Nick gives excellent feedback during the shoot that guided me throughout posing, and really elaborated on what he wanted from the photos. And of course the photos always turn out how I want them as well. Yet on top of his skills, Nick is an extremely kind, fun, and energetic photographer. He has always made me feel 100% comfortable, and I would recommend him to anyone.
- Tori Joray
I love how we worked both planned looks but the last look was very creative, loved the progression of the look, the communication that we had photographer, model and MUA. I felt more confident.
I absolutely loved the photos, they are so creative and something different that I needed in my portfolio. See a huge progress on myself after this shoot. It was such a professional photoshoot, I got great directions and I felt free during the whole shoot. I feel like it was a success!

- Natalie C.
"Nick is so easy to get along with, does a thorough job at recording the entire modeling process by taking lots of photos before and during the shoot so that he can make cool bts videos that everyone enjoys. Has done a great job at working to get us featured in 2 magazines for both the times I've worked with him. The photos are so artistic and beautiful and I am always happy to work with him."
- Sarah A.
Rating 1-5 for Peacock Eye Photography. Five all the way. Nick shows fun and excitement through every shoot. He makes taking pictures not only a job but fun. Which makes the emotions he captures real. There is never a dull moment when we work together. And because of him I have grown stronger as a model.
- Selina Black.
Nick is a easy going, professional, fun, creative photographer! He always brings a diverse range of ideas to create a story before the camera. He is very knowledgeable and comfortable with photography making it very easy for a model to do her thing and make magic happen !
As someone who was just getting started in the modeling business, the only hold up anyone- let alone female has is making sure wherever you are going is a safe environment. Nick understands and does anything everything to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I like how before he even gets you set up, he analyzes the entire scenery and is one hundred percent honest. Which to me, is very important. If you need help with anything during your shoot, he offers great suggestions without getting frustrated or bothersome. I would recommend Nick to anyone, honestly. His style of photos make every person/muse he works with look absolutely stunning. Along with how professional, helpful and reassuring he is, regardless of the situation. Who wouldn't want to work with someone who is just an all around great guy, not just a great photographer?
