My name is Nathaniel, a Chicago-based a 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 business and blog TermiNatetor Kitchen.
In 2018, I had outgrew the blog and wanted to rebrand as a full-fledge photo and video company, and Captures By TK Photo & Film was born. Today, I strive to capture moments through the lens of food, travel, and hospitality.
I have worked with numerous brands including Eggland's Best Eggs, Aberlour Scotch Whiskey, Aunt Millie's Bread, Colavita Olive Oil, & La Colombe Coffee.
Using the platform as a culture guide, I give my viewers a behind-the-scenes look into my daily life, travels, cultural finds, and current projects.
