Born into a bloodline of pirates, bank robbers, and rebels, Cinematographer and Camera Operator, Nathan Rigaud is driven with passion by the inspiration and stories aligning with those in his family before him. Yet his same passion for adventure reflects in a different way. Initially going through Marine Corp Officer Candidate School, he soon found another calling. Pursuing motion picture story telling and marching with his boots on the set to deliver a strong accompaniment of skill and experience. In 2007 Nathan Rigaud attended Colorado Film School for Cinematography and quickly began working in commercial and theatrical production.

Nathan Rigaud earned  extensive experience in
the grip, electrical, and camera departments working on major motion pictures. Gathering many credits across multiple genres he has a diverse skill set,adding to his creativity, and passion for quality in his work.

At one point a strong desire to submerge himself into the depths of the ocean, brought Nate to pursue the added specialty of Scuba Diving, becoming a Dive Master with SSI in 2015 and later PADI, bringing these added skills and experience in underwater camera work to multiple productions ever since.

Living in Atlanta Georgia, Nathan Rigaud continues to work on narrative feature films, television productions, and commercials traveling around the world, wherever there is a story to be created through the lens, and adventure to be had!
