Nate joined BVI in 2016 as a photographer, video editor and timelapse photography enthusiast. Relocating from NYC where Nate was a freelance content creator, Nate has enjoyed the opportunity to explore the city of Boston that comes with the job at BVI. Every project is an opportunity to tell a story about Boston's ever changing urban landscape. When not behind the camera Nate enjoys traveling, barbecuing, and spending time at Lake Winnipesaukee.
Day to day I encounter some pretty interesting situations dealing with stagers filling juice glasses with flat orange soda to give a pop of color to an otherwise dull kitchen, homeowners with hoarding issues, folding towels to properly disguise an ugly toilet in a hotel and hanging off a balcony just to get the right shot of a backyard. My job is anything but dull, and I love it all!
