Capturing Moments Deliciously. 



My name is Nathaniel, and I'm a freelance food, portrait and lifestyle photographer based in Chicago, IL. 

At the age of 18, I fell in love with the art of cooking/baking. At 19, I discovered a passion for photography. 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.
