let's grab some
coffee and chat!
Ready to take your business to the next level?
Are you just venturing out into the exciting world of photography? Or perhaps you’re a seasoned shooter looking to take your marketing game to the next level? Whatever brings you here, I am so thankful to have you here!
My name is Nathaniel. I’m a Chicago-based food, portrait and lifestyle photographer/videographer, creative entrepreneur, analytical artist, lover of iced chai and a person who stutters. Since starting my business at the wee age of 19, while working through my college undergrad, I have since spent the last six years scaling my business, marketing/pitching myself to and creating deliciously engaging photo and video content for clients big and small.
Education has always been a passion of mine, having cultivated an engaged social audience of 25,000+ followers. Being able to help others achieve their goals is something that truly inspires and excites me.
You have a dream? Let’s chase it!

How do 1 on 1
1:1 Mentorships are completely personalized to fit your specific needs and is built upon a comprehensive questionnaire to nurture your unique creative journey and resolve your most burning questions around photography, marketing, and business. We will start with your business needs and goals. From there, we will spend our time together walking through strategies and planning out timelines to help reach your goals.
What CAN I expect from our mentorship sessions?
Once you have select the mentorship hours that works best for you (either 2, 4, 8, 12, 16 or 24 hours), I will reach out via email for a more formal introduction, plan our first meeting date/time, and share a preliminary questionnaire for you to fill out to help me better understand your business needs and goals.
One meeting is 2 hours long, giving us enough time to discuss your goals and develop strategies and timelines! From there, we will work on setting milestones and next steps for future meetings as well as building out a calendar to track your success!
*Due to Covid-19, all 1:1 Mentorship meetings will be held via Google Hangout for the foreseeable future. Once CDC recommendations change, Chicago-based creatives may choose to meet in person.
