‘… if i were to hold just one wish for humanity, it is that we remember our innate capacity to experience each other without condition. Such a shift in awareness might resolve many of the towering predicaments of this age and of our own lives.’

Nic (Askew). From expeditions in the Congo, Amazon and Sahara to a Managing Directorship in Business, Nic’s eclectic earlier life took an unexpected turn in 2005 when a lucid daydream to pick up a film camera and use it in a profound fashion consumed him with no doubt. A living experience of his poem The Tree of Dreams.

Since that day he has used this camera to capture an unyielding experience of human presence, taking his film subjects and clients far beyond the experience of the mind and deep into an inner, wiser and more intelligent world.

Through a nearly two decade journey in explorative film, he discovered that there is a profoundly simple way that we are able to be together, which he refers to as Inner View. The sharing of this experience has transformed the relationship countless people have with themselves and those around them.

His Inner View Method has given rise to the acclaimed Soul Biographies Film Series, an experience of human presence viewed by millions.

Nic has set out to capture The Soul of This Human Race on film, in all its shades and from all four corners. So that we might see ourselves reflected in each other. So that we might see beyond all differences. So that we might come to remember that we each belong without condition. When one catches sight of an inner view of another everything changes.


He has worked in provocative fashion in some of the World’s most influential arenas, and has given a profound visibility to both leaders and the seemingly ordinary person who it turns out is each a haunting reflection of us all.

The work with and without the camera has been described as sitting in the experience of an unyielding awareness. This experience allows both the subject and audience to see with clear perception, give conscious voice to important things and access an extraordinary source of insight.

Nic has worked with many organizations: Georgetown University, Harvard Business School, Apple, National Institute For Civil Discourse, The Inner Game Institute, Young Presidents Organization, Entrepreneurs Organization, Prosperidad Ciudadana (National Political Party), Center For Leadership Philanthropy, Medtronic, Entrepreneurs Organization, Trustmark Insurance, Nieuw Unicum Multiple Sclerosis Center, Joseph’s House Hospice, MacArthur Foundation, US Bureau of Land Management, Entrepreneurs’ Organization, MIT Entrepreneurial Forum and many many more.

He has been described more poetically as an itinerant confessor, a disruptive influence, a monk independent of any religion and an explorer of the Inner World.
