About Nate


Nate Crawford is an award-winning commercial food, product, and lifestyle photographer/videographer. He is known for his deliciously engaging stills and videos that connects the crossroads between food, community, and hospitality. He loves crafting content that invokes senses of joy, nostalgia, and (of course) hunger. In addition to his artistic pursuits, Nate is a dedicated photo educator, learned home baker, and person who stutters.


Drawing from his extensive background in digital marketing, Nate possesses a deep passion and comprehensive understanding of creative content and its strategic implementation across multiple channels. 


When he's not photographing food, you can find Nate graphic designing or creating delicious dishes with his partner out of their home studio in Chicago.
