Nate Watters: Photographer, fisherman. Widelux photo by William Anthony.

who I am:

There are few places I enjoy standing more than behind a camera or in a river, fishing rod in hand (usually no fishing rod in-hand while behind the camera – that’s strictly an in-the-river thing). On rare occasions, you might catch me in a river and in front of the camera. (Very rare – see above). If you ever see me behind a camera, fishing rod in hand, standing in a river in front of a camera, just call for help. That’s weird.

I grew up in rural towns of both Washington and Montana. I spend the majority of my time exploring both states and everywhere in between (and sometimes beyond), capturing what I can on film or newfangled digital cameras. I shoot photos of my fiance until she gets annoyed, and shoot even more of our dog, Maddie, because she rarely gets annoyed.
