Meet Owner/Founder John Cockerham
Dude, myth, or legendary super cool photographer. You pick!
See, I got you smiling right away. I’m sure you can already tell this isn’t your typical bio.
First, I’m definitely not that broody photographer behind the lens. Let’s get that picture out of the way right now. I’m a former sales guy turned photographer… some may say accomplished. I’m a little bit Type-A, but also known to crack a joke or two—though always in good taste… and I’ll definitely find a way to make you laugh.
But in all seriousness, consider me your friend and partner in success. My joy comes from capturing the beauty in every home and making your products and drinks look like someone’ll want to pay a million bucks for them. No joke!
My grandmother “Mimi,” who was a professional portrait photographer, introduced me to the art of picture taking as a young lad. So, she’d let me play and dabble in her studio—and I definitely have some great memories there. That’s why I named this business for her.
I loved the idea of being able to capture a moment in time and look back at it later. As a kid, I would even grab my dad’s VHS camera and really enjoyed being creative. Sadly, Mimi never did get to see this dream come to fruition.
Now, for the past six years, I’ve discovered an innate talent to tell a story with a photo and find the beauty in every space—whether it’s the unique architectural lines of a home or the way morning light filters through a window… the split-second splash of a lime falling into an iced beverage and the way a product is backlit to make the consumer believe it ought to be the most expensive item on the shelf!
And on a personal note…
I come from a family with an interesting historical connection to Greensboro. Just ask me about it! I treasure every day with my wonderfully beautiful and talented wife, Riley Elaine. I’m a dog dad to Moose, a red fox lab; Coven, a hound/lab mix; and Abbey, a Maltese/Yorkie. And I’m getting ready to be a human dad, too, with a son on the way in spring 2022. More on that to come!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this snapshot about me… and I look forward to meeting you very soon!

PART FOREST BATHER, PART SNOW DEVIL, PART BEER MONGER
Nate Jones is a Greensboro, NC, native who’s lived in Boone, NC, for six years and graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2003. (No, he wasn’t on the six-year college plan.). He’s a lover of the mountains and outdoors, an avid hiker and backpacker, sometimes risk-taking snowboarder and skier, and a huge lover of local and global travel. All of these adventures Nate shares with his beautiful wife, Dr. Peyton Thompson. The bonus is that great exploration lends to some pretty amazing photographs!
After a successful career as a graphic designer, and most recently as a creative director for a beer distributor, Nate now gets to live his dream of turning his passions of both art and photography into his profession. And maybe one day, he can work in his love of beer and home brewing as well.
