BIO

                                                                                is a CAMERA OPERATOR with 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 an internship in high school at a local TV studio where he discovered he belonged behind the camera. He was then hired by the studio and quickly worked his way to lead camera operator.

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 operate on features like The Ultimate Playlist of Noise, American Pie Presents: Girls' Rules, and A Personal Pandemic, shows like AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, PopTV's Swedish Dicks, HBOMax's Full Bloom, NBC's Songland, and NBC's Titan Games, commercial projects for brands like Reebok, Facebook, Wells Fargo, and United Health Care, and various documentary films, short films, and music videos. He is a member of the International Cinematographers Guild and an associate member of the Society of Camera Operators.

His approach on every project is that each story deserves its own visual style and that the cinematography, the framing, and how the camera moves, should only be there to serve the story, not distract from it. 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.
