Nathan Brown is a commercial photographer, assistant and retoucher, with three years experience working in a commercial studio environment, with experience in a range of lighting and camera equipment. His portfolio showcases a strong interest in product, fashion and lifestyle photography. With a strong work ethic and initiative, he is always searching for the most creative and unique ways to capture the subject. Whilst it is in his nature to problem solve in order to overcome most hurdles when shooting. He enjoys collaborating with others, providing him with experience in organising and liaising with a creative team. Nathan also has an insight into the photographic process from camera to display.
Nathan studied Commercial Photography at the University of Derby, where he developed his photographic skills and experience whilst gaining a First Class degree. At university, he created a number of projects that involved working in the studio, developing and printing analogue film in the darkroom, recording moving image and generating complex staged images where subjects were composited into alternate locations. His most recent project titled ‘Breaking Glass’, attempts to provide representation to women working in traditionally male dominated workplaces, in order to break down stereotypes. These images have been digitally constructed by capturing models in the studio, who were then composited into different locations, to reflect on these cultural constructions. This project was exhibited at the University of Derby’s Degree Show and at the Old Truman Brewery in London in 2019.
Nathan has worked on commissions for the University of Derby, the Derwent WISE project and Derby Rowing Club, as well as assisting a range of photographers on fashion, portraiture and still life briefs.
