Hello, friends! 

My name is N C Stephens and welcome to my little slice of the Internet. I’m a 23-year-old food and still life photographer from Chicago, IL. By day I work in hotel marketing and on nights and weekends I work as a photographer/entrepreneur. Growing up I was surrounded by outstanding home bakers like my Grandma Cooley, Grandma Crawford, and my own mother (also known as Momma Crawford.) Their recipes taught me that 1). Homemade is best, and 2). Good food is meant to be shared. 

I started cooking/baking the Summer of 2013, just before my freshman year of college. I fell madly in love. I found the process of taking all these different ingredients and making something new and delicious out of it intoxicating. A year later I started taking photos with my smartphone (which were terrible, to say the least!) Though I learned and grew and in January of 2015 I launched TermiNatetor Kitchen, a food blog documenting my journey through the world of food.

Three years later, I’ve had the opportunities to work with some incredible brands on a variety of projects and campaigns, meet and collaborate with some incredible creatives in the industry, and ultimately turning this passion project into a profitable small business. But I am still far from achieving my dreams, and this is where you dear friend come in! 

With your support on Patreon, I will be able to make more content including recipe blog posts, culinary films, photography tutorials, behind the scenes content, and potential workshops, classes, and even a cookbook! You will help make my dream of being a full-time creator a reality. <3 

On my Patreon page you will find exclusive Behind the Scenes content including:

- Behind the scene photos & videos
- How-to's and tips for photographing food, product and still life.
- Photo talk-through's (I take one of my photos and go in depth on how I styled the image and why I made the choices I did)
-Photo assignments (an interactive way to grow, learn and evolve as a food and still life photographer, with the chance to be featured a crossed my social media)
- Post editing how-to's
- Exclusive access to upcoming workshops and online classes
- Interviews with some of your favorite food photographers
- And much, much more!

Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for checking out my page and considering becoming a patron. Your contribution will get my step closer to my dreams of becoming a full time food photographer and educator! 

With great love, 

N. C.
