Nathaniel is a photographer / filmmaker living in East London.
He studied at the University of London Queen Mary where he received a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Film Studies. He went on to receive a Master of Fine Arts in Film from the University of Wales, Newport Film School. He began his career as a runner, before working in both production and post-production as a cameraman and video editor. He has worked with various advertising agencies, organisations, and charities making short films and creative video content.
Nathaniel turned his attention to photography in 2019. His photographs have recently been published in books, and have gained numerous honourable mentions, been shortlisted, and made both semi-finalist and finalist at multiple photography competitions.
Nathaniel’s most ambitious project to date was carrying out a two-year photographic project documenting everyday life in London during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Two photographs from this project were selected for the prestigious ‘Edition 365’ by 1854 and the British Journal of Photography. Three photographs were also exhibited at Hackney Museum’s exhibition ‘We Are All in This Together: Hackney During the Pandemic’. His most recognised photograph from this project, NEW WORLD ORDER, has also been sold as an original NFT.
