About Nathan Holrtiz

Nathan Holritz is an entrepreneur based in Chattanooga, TN. Starting in professional photography 17 years ago, Nathan helped bring a modern style of premium wedding photography to the Chattanooga market via Holritz Photography. While helping run Holritz Photography, Nathan saw both a personal and industry need for a company that could handle the post-processing of the thousands of images photographed at weddings.

He created Photographer’s Edit, a company geared toward providing a solution for professional photographers to outsource this post-processing following weddings and large events. The company was launched in 2008, and has continued to grow since, processing millions of images for professional photographers. Nathan also hosts the Bokeh Photography Podcast, which focuses on the topics of photography technique, running a photography business, and creating more freedom and flexibility in your life as a photography business owner.

Episode 133: Photographers Share Their Most Cringeworthy Moments Behind the Lens (Part 2)

Photographers share their most cringeworthy moments behind the lensI shared my first episode of cringeworthy stories that fellow photographers shared back on Halloween, and it was so much fun that I knew I wanted to put together another episode of cringeworthy photographer stories.

Today I’m sharing part 2 with even more (and even more horrifying) real life photographer stories. And a quick disclaimer this time around – these stories are not all appropriate for children, so if you’re listening with children around, you may want to hit pause and wait until later to listen (but I promise that it’s worth the wait for some of these hilariously entertaining stories).

One more quick note – I’m delaying the Mini Portfolio Critique while I’m in New York City this week to see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” You now have until March 26, 2019 to enter.
