Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor
Nathan grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. He developed his love for nature as a kid at his family’s cabin in Northern Wisconsin. Family fishing trips, camping, hiking and a trip to his first National Park in the Everglades, all vigorously shaped his passion for the natural world. After graduating with a degree in Cinema and Photography from Southern Illinois University in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest, he moved to Southern California to work as a camera operator and photographer in a wide range of projects including work for the National Geographic Society. His photography has also been exhibited in galleries and in publications.
A strong desire for adventure led him to travel around the world learning new cultures and photographing the beauty in the diverse natural world we live in. Working as a Photography Naturalist guide in Southeast Alaska he has been able to fine tune his creative eye, while educating his guests on photography tips and the ecology of the place he considers his second home.
Nathan hopes his photography, knowledge and passion will inspire others to explore and stand up for the planet.
