Starkey Hearing Technologies

August 2022

Launched in winter 2023, the Genesis campaign created a library of images with a broad group of talent highlighting the newest product line from Starkey. This was a large production with nearly 20 talent, two sets, motion & stills and numerous prop and wardrobe changes. I'm really proud to have a strong, easy-going team that after the hurdles of pre-production made the time on set easy and productive. Motion and stills on the same set with the same continuous lighting for matching looks, but we spend dedicated time with the talent for each media, being able to direct action optimally for still or motion and not compromise framing or continuity.

“Nate is a true talent and collaborator. We had a concept that heavily relied on lighting and Nate and the team worked diligently to make the vision come to life.  He’s not only talented as a photographer, he’s listens and strives to bring authentic connections to life. He’s  a gem of a human that makes work fun.“
