Drawing from his extensive background in digital marketing, Nate possesses a deep passion and comprehensive understanding of creative content and its strategic implementation across multiple channels.
What does TK mean?
At the age of 18, Nate fell in love with the art of cooking/baking. At 19, he discovered a passion for photography. Six months later, while working through his undergrad, he started a food blog called TermiNatetor Kitchen, based on a nickname given to him by his first boss at his high school job as a grocery store cashier. In 2018, he had outgrew the blog and wanted to rebrand as a full-fledge photo and video company while keeping the TK motif.
Soon, Captures By TK Photo & Film was born. Here we are today.
