Nathan's work as a professional real estate and architectural photographer is recognized throughout the industry from not only his work in Southern California, but also his best selling books on photography, and his following on social media as well. Using high-end yet cost-effective photography techniques, Nathan applies the same craft used for magazine shoots for not just designers, builders and architects, but also for realtors listing their properties on the MLS. Nathan's photography spans into other genres as well such as custom portrait work, product photography, and occasional fine art projects.
