Capturing your light!
SWFL Family Portraiture, Events, Marketing and more...
I'm a multidiscipline artist living in Bonita Springs Florida. Since relocating to SWFL, I have honed my focus around my foundations in photography and started a business in 2016 serving over 500 clients since. These clients range from families and individuals, local businesses, and larger companies like Go Daddy. My focus is to be constantly improving to create beautiful eye-catching images while collaborating with my clients. Bringing a relaxed midwest approachability makes me the ideal choice for any client looking to invest in high-quality imagery.
Photography has been a cornerstone of my life. From owning a Polaroid 600 in my youth, snapping moments in life was always a past time. As my passion for art grew, my education followed this path. All forms of art, especially photography, directed all life choices. With a camera always handy as a means to document my sculptural process and completed work, it continues to hang off my neck or shoulder everywhere I go.
For the Love
The moments. This is the best job in the world to me. Capturing a surprise engagement, a wedding, an anniversary or celebration are always great moments to be apart.
I love complete control of light. This is why I love portraits and headshot photography most. I utilize a variety of light modifiers and strobes in addition to available natural light to create images that pop. Nothing is more satisfying than creating a perfectly lit subject in camera.
Families, individuals, weddings/events, corporate, marketing and product are all areas that I specialize at. Collaboration is what makes all of these photo session successful. Without connecting to my subject the image will fail no matter how well it's composed and exposed.

When I am not setting up my travel studio everywhere it is requested there is nothing like the golden hours at the beach in SWFL. Additionally I love mixing it up shooting against urban landscapes as well as downtown Ft. Myers and Naples. An often-overlooked gem is downtown Bonita Springs (my backyard) with its variety of greenery, bridges, river, wall morals so much can be captured in such a small area.

Nate is a great photographer. From our 1st phone call to the day of our wedding, Nate was extremely nice and helpful. He answered every question and provided additional recommendations that worked out great. He took care of every detail and capture every moment during our special day. It was a pleasure meeting him and working with him. Thanks Nate!!!
Nate was a real professional from start to finish. He asked to speak on the phone so he could get a good of what my needs were, showed up on time, did his work unobtrusively and delivered a great product. When I had a question after the fact he responded quickly as well. Highly recommend!

Nate came through at the last second. My friend decided that I needed to have the proposal photographed so he hired Nate to do the job. Nate spoke to my friend at 5:00 pm, and was at the beach by 7:30 pm - 15 minutes before I arrived. Nate was punctual, professional, and extremely dependable and even left an outing on the boat to photograph my engagement. He comes highly recommended. A true professional. 6/5 stars.

Nate was a pleasure. He was down to earth and easy to work with. He was professional, skilled yet personal and unobtrusive. This was all before I saw even one photo. The finished product was the icing on the cake. Beautiful. I couldn't stop looking at them, and they were promotional for my business Will use him again for sure.

I hired Nate to photograph a proposal on the beach. He was great and professional from start to finish. His quote was very reasonable. When I called to discuss details of the job, he went above and beyond offering his knowledge of the best secluded beaches to do the proposal and capture the sunset. He was very detailed in planning. He took a lot of pictures and ensured that we were happy throughout. My fiancee and I were so surprised when Nate turned around the edited pictures in less than a day. We would use Nate again in a heartbeat!
