Nathan’s 2014 Double Exposure Exhibition at Cavalier Galleries took Nathan to new heights in the world of fine art. Inspired by Nantucket, Nathan wanted to show a new dimension of the beautiful landscapes he had long been shooting. Nathan’s appreciation for the sensual beauty of the natural landscape gave him the idea to overlay the female form on the landscapes to tell a new story. The end result is a captivating, provocative, one-of-a-kind piece of fine art. With the large-scale photos being editions of one, these pieces are truly a collector’s item.
Nathan is also renown for his wedding photography. Shooting internationally Nathan is quickly becoming one of the most sought after wedding photographers.

Clients love his work for both his fashion aesthetic and Nathan’s ability to narrate their story through thoughtful images showcasing the natural beauty and emotion of their special day.
Nathan’s passion for photography began at University, graduating with a BA Hons degree from Gloucestershire, England in Photography and Media. Nathan then moved to Nantucket where he made a name for himself as the Creative Director/Editor of N Magazine, leading the team through a rebrand, cementing N Magazine as a hugely successful destination publication.
Nathan left N Magazine to pursue his fine art photography. He is still living on Nantucket today with his wife Kate and their son Seve. Family is extremely important to Nathan and in his spare time he loves to take Seve out onto his home golf course, Miacomet Golf Club. Nathan is a scratch golfer who once worked under the England Golf Head Coach Gary Smith.
Photography aside, Nathan has also found himself very much a part of the Nantucket community. In 2013 he founded Nativ Made, a healthy grab-and-go eatery where you will find locally sourced meal options, pasties and cold-pressed-juices, with locations in Nantucket and South Beach. Nathan has also served on the board of a number of non-profits, and enjoys volunteering at local charity events. Nathan is especially passionate about helping those with special needs, whether donating time or a piece of art, he gives back whenever he can. This passion comes from his relationship with his younger brother Reuben who was born with Down’s Syndrome. Nathan credits Reuben for teaching him about humility, patience, beauty, love, and so much more. To Nathan, being around people with special needs is the true meaning of life. It is what grounds and fulfills him to be around people that in Nathan's opinion are closer to God than the rest of us.
