Nathan

BIO

                                                                              has a passion for imagery and a fascination with light. He loves the outdoors and is always ready for an adventure. He is inspired by the arts, nature, and his kids' curiosity about the world around them.

Nathan's passion for imagery began as a kid with an old Olympus OM-1 that he received from his grandma. He found film's texture and depth magical. It was at an internship in high school at a local TV studio where he discovered he belonged behind the camera. He was immediately hired by the studio and quickly worked his way to lead cameraman.

After shooting and editing full-time for over a decade, he began working exclusively as a freelancer in 2012. Since then Nathan has had the opportunity to shoot for shows like AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, NBC's Songland, Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards, Lionsgate's Swedish Dicks, commercial projects for brands like Reebok, Facebook, Wells Fargo, and United Health Care, and various documentary films. 

His approach on every project is that each story deserves its own visual style and that cinematography should, above all, serve the story. His positive attitude and work ethic have created lasting relationships and repeat clients.

When he's not working, you may find him with his family or wandering the trails of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
