Tate is one of those people who¬†disproves the old adage that a jack¬†of all trades¬†must be¬†a master of none. He¬†joined MWB in¬†2003 as a senior interactive developer with a background in graphic design. But, over the years, Tate¬†has been increasingly in demand for his photography, videography¬†and motion graphics skills. See a few of his shots below:
Shortly after he posted it, Tate’s Color Me Rad photo made it to the Explore tab of Flickr. As of today, the shot has been clicked more than 40,000 times. Amazing picture, isn’t it?
Tate¬†is a co-founder¬†of SkateMS,¬†an avid skateboarder, baseball fan¬†and¬†family man (who has been known to do a couple of spot-on “Family Guy” voice impressions).¬†He¬†has¬†an A1 attitude and does whatever is needed¬†to make every project great.
You can¬†see more of¬†Tate Nation’s photography on Flickr. And be sure to give him a shout-out in the comments.
Have you heard? Next year, 2014, is going to be declared the year of the Creative Economy in Mississippi. In advance of this, we are sponsoring a photo contest via @MSCreativeEcon. Pick a subject matter you believe depicts our state’s creative economy, and tweet it to @MSCreativeEcon using the #msCreative. We pick a winner each week who receives a $5 iTunes credit. Oh, and businesses are eligible! We’re really looking forward to seeing all the creative photography our creative people take of our creative economy!
In his spare time when he’s not busy coding websites, shooting and editing videos or animating motion graphics projects, our illustrious jack-of-all-trades, Tate Nations, likes to take pictures. Did we mention that he’s a new dad, too?
Here’s a series of shots Tate took of our building in each of the four seasons, including one from the “Blizzard of 2010” that took a lot of Mississippi residents by surprise.
