I am 18 years old and have lived in beautiful Lake Tahoe, Nevada my whole life. I have been practicing photography for over 7 years, starting with black and white darkroom photography classes as well as color darkroom photography.

I am currently studying the many aspects of digital as well as studio, landscape and portrait photography. I recently interned for 9 months with a professional photography studio ( and have gained knowledge and hands on experience in everything from shooting and editing, to printing and framing by professional standards.

I have also been studying the various types of marketing, advertising, relations and production as specified by the professional photography community. Please take some time to view my work. If you are interested in purchasing any of my photography or booking my services for an event, please contact me for more information. Thanks!



With a decade past and digital photography becoming more obsolete, I've decided to take another step forward in the field. While completely updating software and equipment for the best possible quality, myself and a small team of associates are helping to make Nathan Alexander Photography a friendlier, more professional, and more affordable photographic experience.

An update: My daughter takes to heart the above suggestion when she "styles" our family portrait get-togethers. The results are not only memorable, but also hilarious. A recent photograph had us arranged with various janitorial supply props. I work for an e commerce site that sells such supplies. I am always going on about how we have the best wholesale prices on paper towels, toilet paper, and other paper products. So my photo crazed daughter posed us holding, wearing, throwing paper products from the store. I showed the photo to my boss and it inspired him to create an advertising campaign using the same concept. He even allowed my daughter to attend the shoot and assist the professional photographer. She was thrilled.

Prints and frames are available in many different sizes, and a digital CD or flash drive for your photos are available - giving you the freedom to further edit, print, and email your portraits.

If you're interested in a photo shoot please contact me on the "about" page, leave your name, contact information and a short message describing your request and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


 A Sailing Stone in Death Valley

Explanation: How did this big rock end up on this strange terrain? One of the more unusual places here on Earth occurs inside Death Valley, California, USA. There a dried lakebed named Racetrack Playa exists that is almost perfectly flat, with the odd exception of some very large stones, one of which is pictured above. Now the flatness and texture of large playa like Racetrack are fascinating but not scientifically puzzling -- they are caused by mud flowing, drying, and cracking after a heavy rain. Only recently, however, has a viable scientific hypothesis been given to explain how 300-kilogram sailing stones ended up near the middle of such a large flat surface. Unfortunately, as frequently happens in science, a seemingly surreal problem ends up having a relatively mundane solution. It turns out that high winds after a rain can push even heavy rocks across a temporarily slick lakebed.
