About

Two years ago, Nate started casually taking pictures with his iPhone. A lot of pictures. Most were taken outdoors and highlighted some of the unique characteristics of West Chester, PA, and Sea Isle City, NJ, where Nate spends most of his time.

While Nate enjoyed taking the photos, he decided they needed something, as he says, to “funk them up.” He began applying filters to make the colors extra vibrant, then shared the embellished photos on social media.

Before long, family and friends took notice — including Nate’s employers at the Grace Winery in Glen Mills, PA, who encouraged him to do an art show at a wine tasting.

“We printed out about 50 matted photos and he sold all of them,” says Carolyn Seagraves, Nate’s mom. “Nate’s Funky Pics was born. After that, Nate started selling items with his photos at festivals and farmers’ markets. We’re working on building a website for his business now.”

Photography isn’t Nate’s only interest. He also loves to sing and dance and hopes to perform on Broadway one day. “I want to be famous and still do photography,” Nate says.

For now, Nate, 22, enjoys being a student at West Chester University in the RAM Initiative Program (a two year certificate program for young adults with intellectual disabilities) and building his photography business.
