The Man Behind
the Camera

Welcome to Captures By TK Photo & Film

My name is Nathaniel, a Chicago-based

commercial food, product & lifestyle photographer + videographer, educator, iced chai aficionado, learned home baker & person who stutters. I picked up a camera back in 2014 and now, 8 years later, I create deliciously engaging photo and video content for my clients along with helping other photographers do the same!

"I used Captures By TK for a recent photo shoot to showcase the food and beverage in a new dining room at MSC. From the initial contact to the final snap of the camera, Nate was professional, communicative and extremely talented. We are so pleased with how the photos turned out and I look forward to working on many more projects in the future."
