About Nathaniel

My name is Nathaniel, an award-winning Chicago-based commercial food, product & lifestyle photographer/videographer, iced chai aficionado, learned home baker & person who stutters.

 

At the age of 18, I fell in love with the art of cooking/baking. At 19, I discovered a passion for photography. Six months later, while working through my undergrad, I started my food blog called TermiNatetor Kitchen.

After graduating college and moving to Chicago, I was tired of blogging and wanted to rebrand as a full-fledge photo and video company. So, in early 2019, I launched Captures By TK Photo & Film. 

Today, I work and collaborate with my clients to capture delicious moments through the lens of food, travel, and hospitality. 

 

With an additional 5 years of marketing experience under my belt,  I have a deep passion and understanding of creative content and how it can be best implemented across an omni-channel strategy.
