NickCatania is a Director of Photography with a passion for storytelling and thinking in pictures. He spent the early part of his career in the lighting department, where he developed an appreciation for defining space and adding character to the frame with light and color; ultimately moving behind the lens to fully realize his vision. He is also an FAA licensed drone pilot with experience shooting in a wide range of environments, from sweeping landscape shots to precision operating in tight spaces with little margin for error.
His love of diverse cultural and life experiences has led him to work in a broad range of genres, including reality television, documentary, music video, commercials and corporate video. A native of Philadelphia, he now calls New York City his home, where diverse crosscurrents continue to inform his hunger for fresh perspectives.
Nick has shot for an extensive list of clients, including HGTV, Travel Channel, MTV, VH1, Complex Media, DIY Network, BET and REELZ. He is always on the lookout for new and interesting projects.
