I am a globally published photographer based in Bristol TN/VA. My work has been published in over 60 countries in numerous publications, including multiple covers.

My relationship with photography has been an extensive one, expanding greatly after moving to Colorado in 2002. I began photographing the incredible landscapes there and while traveling in Paris (where I proposed to my wife), my interests evolved into portraiture photography which ultimately led to the formation of Nathan Mays Photography.

Nathan Mays Photography was established in early 2010 and serves Northeast Tennessee/Southwest Virginia and beyond. I specialize in contemporary high school senior, pageant/corporate headshots, and wedding photography. I also have a passion for concert photography as well, photographing for a variety of publications, festivals, and bands.

In January of 2012, I was recruited to be 1 of 2 special event photographers for Sam’s Club, owned and operated by the world’s largest corporation. I am now privileged to cover all of their major events across the nation.

In December of 2012, I began photographing the work of world renowned hair and makeup artist, Sherri Jessee. Since becoming a team, we have photographed dozens of editorial and ad campaigns for a variety of companies and publications and continue to do so.

If you are looking for a photographer who can make any client comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, look no further. I have photographed 100’s of subjects and take pride in the fact that my clients have fun and enjoy themselves way more than they ever thought they would. It doesn’t matter if you are a Fortune 500 CEO, a blushing bride, or a high school senior, you will feel completely at ease during your session.

Thank you for stopping by!
