Nathaniel Dodson | Endy Photography
Areas of Expertise:
Movie Style Portrait Photography | Professional Portrait Retouching (Photoshop)

I am a creative portrait photographer serving immediately the Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C. areas and I am available worldwide! I’ll photograph almost anything that moves and even some stuff that doesn’t move! I am the second oldest of eight children. I like to be intelligently different. When “baggy” pant were in style, I wore biker shorts. I love great music. Especially when I get to define what “great” is. I don’t wear a watch… I decide what time it is. I’ve played the guitar since 2004 and can strum a chord or two. Someday I will get my pilot’s license and fly around the world; I think I’ll try to find a shortcut. I am a baseball freak. Being on cloud 9 isn’t good enough, I’m looking for a cloud 10. I have the short-term memory of a 95 year-old man. I just talk and I tend to talk a lot. I try to listen too. I once made a weeping willow laugh. I like my photo shoots to be tighter than two coats of paint.

SOLD! On October 10 at Johnny Brenda’s
