Hi! My name is Nathaniel. I live in Portland, Oregon and I love taking photos of genuine moments with people on adventures and everyday life. In addition to taking photos, I enjoy writing songs, reading, and hiking around beautiful locations.
I love getting to interact with people and take photos of moments that will help people remember an emotion for a lifetime. I believe that the best photoshoots have three elements - light, location, story. I love being able to work with a client and plan a shoot using these 3 categories. If they have a say in the process, they're almost always happy!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done all sorts of portrait & lifestyle shoots, but I feel that if everything lines up (the location, lighting, story) it will turn out well. Recently, I was doing work for an outdoor company and took their products to Scotland - The Isle of Sky, and we hiked up the Storr to take photos with their gear. It was a really special experience because of the location.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
The types of photoshoots I've done don't normally receive rewards, but I've been featured on popular platforms like Joshua Tree National Park, HipCamp, Parks Project, and more.
A fun fact about this photographer
I graduated with a music degree and used to play at a bunch of different venues in San Diego.
