Well hello there. My given name is Renata and I often introduce myself as Nata. Spending my work days photographing portraits and events for private and commercial clients makes me happy. Kind words from past clients can be found on LinkedIn. Photos I’ve created have graced major recording artists’ web sites, been published in Rolling Stone (online), local Seattle magazines, and even the Sydney Morning Herald of all things. On a pretty regular basis I happily donate time by trying hard to produce compelling portraits of world renowned musicians who grace the halls of Seattle’s incomparable, listener supported radio station, 90.3 KEXP.org. My m.o. is efficiently (on average in 5 minutes or less which is a bit nuts when you think about it) creating images where people look like their best selves, and making sure everyone involved is having a great time. I spent too many years of my professional life working at jobs that were nothing but a paycheck. These days, I’m having all kinds of fun meeting and working with new people on a daily basis and creating photos that will last a lifetime. Life in Seattle, Washington with my husband and our dog Griffin is pretty great. Two random facts about me are that I thoroughly enjoy catching people off guard with my sarcastic quick wit which I 100% attribute to my stellar, dearly departed dad, and my all time favorite band is Pixies. Thanks for checking out my site. It would be wonderful to connect with you so don’t be shy!
