Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I shoot candid natural shots with natural lighting as well as studio portrait style with studio strobes that aren't so "posed." The camera doesn't lie and you can tell a fake smile right away. I capture true emotion and life as its happening. I travel around each and every year looking for newer and better products and education so that I can provide the best services for my clients. While still being professional, I am personal with each client because for them its personal. Therefore its very personal for me. It's also a common request from clients to say, "You're the photographer, come up with something." The problem with this is I have had several clients that I came up with something that was so far off their vision simply due to there being no input. Granted, the shoot turned out great because I have done this for 22 years now, and know risk management and disaster control by experience. In all shoots, it's a collaboration in a consultation. This means there is input and a plan on both sides. And once you hire me, you have my attention and my time right up until the day of the shoot and then after. Also, I offer amazing print options from labs from around the country. I don't currently have a studio so I don't have as much overhead costs. This helps me be more competitive without being forced to sell myself short. Basically, cheap photographer equals cheap products in most cases. As also with most photographers, we are ALWAYS "working on our website." It's a never-ending nightmare with globs pieces of a blissful incredible beautiful dream. There is really no other way to put it. So basically, feel free to ask for more samples other than what you see. Products I offer: Prints on Acrylic (behind glass), on aluminum metal, collages prints, canvas, canvas wraps, panoramics, vivid metals, shirts, mousepads, mugs and cups, and so many more. If your child is in sports, I also offer wall clings, stand-alone boards, trading cards, pins, and way too much to list here. Last but not least, God doesn't make trash. That being said, God sees us all as His children and beautiful. So I want to capture His creation in the most real and raw beautiful form possible so that you can treasure these memories for lifetimes (my prints are quality control guaranteed for 100+ years). Life is so short, so preserving these memories is something so precious that words can't describe how much it humbles me to work with people and give them something they can treasure in their hearts forever. So don't just take a picture, CAPTURE LIFE, with NWPhotoVideo.

Nathan is a professional, from start to finish. When I first consulted Nathan for a photo shoot, I expressed concerns for time constraints. I explained the subject had a previous photo shoot that was of poor quality and really needed something immediate and of professional quality. Nathan responded promptly with samples of his work along with competitive prices. We had to give him a try. On the day of the photo shoot he explained all the legalities, then went to work. He was original with his ideas and flexible to the needs of the subject and their expectations of what they wanted others to see in them in their pictures. His creative style and imagination with the camera are strong attributes. He is good "on the fly" with his equipment and his knowledge and use of the equipment was an important part of taking photographs using outside elements. He has a talent and gift. Given his overall performance from start to finish, I would recommend Nathan and would certainly use him for future projects, personal or business.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My packages vary and are included on my website. I have payment plans and its also payable via cash, bank cashiers check, or credit card. All packages are customizable and I often have special promotional. My rates are configured to my 2015 Budget for my CODB (Cost of doing Business) which includes cost of living expenses. Cost of doing business includes my time, equipment insurance, storage (hard drives to save and backup your photos), transportation costs, and any cost to hire an assistant and hairstylist/makeup artist(s). I feel that I have to put this because some people just think all I have to do is take pictures... um no.. If you want professional photos you hire a professional photographer... otherwise, use your camera phone.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a photojournalist. I go to all the expos and conferences, i have a degree in Broadcasting and Film minor, over 18+ years of experience in photography with classes and workshops, and I also teach photography and fashion modeling. I am mentored by some of the countries best photographers, and mentor photographers as well. I network with professionals in cinematography and video, which enhance my photography skills and talent.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    People. Life. Death. Those special moments that people can't only preserve through a photograph. Life is so short. And the beginning is so beautiful and when we are gone, its important to leave those treasured memories behind. That is why I'm a photographer. Its the love for people.
