my Family
My name is Nathan Stevens and I am an freelance cinematographer based outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I have a loving wife, Merriellen, and three wonderful boys: Oliver, Eliot and Callan. We're also expecting a little girl who will join our family in March 2021. 

my passion
My passion is to challenge and encourage people through the art of visual storytelling. 
Films are a unique medium that allow a viewer to be completely immersed into a story. I want my cinematography to grip the audience and bring them into a different world.

my style
I strive to make a scene look as naturally lit as possible. I draw a lot of inspiration from Roger Deakins. When watching his work, you rarely even notice the lighting. It looks so natural and never calls attention to itself.
My camera style is appropriate to whatever story is being told, whether that means a lot of movement, or locked off on every shot. I work closely alongside writers and directors to understand their vision so that I can design the cinematography to compliment the story being told.
