    Almost entirely self taught as a photographer, he brings years of corporate experience from working for companies in Silicon Valley, such as Apple. While quality photography is always the first priority, this unorthodox path to being a photography studio owner has helped Nathan build a business that focuses on the entire customer experience and strong processes to support that mission. When not at a school or in the office, you can find Nathan hiking trails around Berkeley with his daughter, taking landscape photos on a road trip, playing guitar, or saying hello to other people’s dogs.

    Wes Kroninger is a world renowned editorial photographer and owner of Next Gen Photo Solutions, a system built for volume photographers using composite workflows. Wes grew up in Westerville, Ohio, and traveled the country photographing work for clients like Rolling Stone, AVEDA and The Home Depot. From New Orleans to Miami Beach to Los Angeles to Atlanta and beyond, Wes worked hard to develop a style to his work and a passion for photography that won many awards for his clients and himself.

    His photographic collaboration with the Aveda student design team resulted in two Aveda’s Edwin Neill Full Potential awards. He also earned a Best of Show Award for a Children’s Miracle Network calendar, an organization to which he donates his photographic work. A photo essay completed in 2003 earned Kroninger First Place in the Southwest Journalism Conference. In 2004, he received the prestigious Hy Sheanin Memorial Scholarship from Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). He also received an honorable mention in the prestigious Lucie Awards, which honor master photographers and their contributions to the field. He recently took home a gold ADDY award in New Orleans and a silver ADDY in Panama City, Florida.

    Additionally, Wes’s work has gained national exposure, in publications including American Salon, Rolling Stone, Modern Salon, Rangefinder, Studio Photography, Banking Investor Magazine, Long Beach Magazine and a wide range of trade publications.

    In 2015, Wes founded Next Gen Photo Solutions for volume sports photographers seeking a simpler and more efficient way to manage their data, build composite teams, and design product graphics. Because the Next Gen system was built for volume photographers, the need to handle large amounts of data as efficiently as possible evolved into a shoot day system and streamlined digital workflow platform used by hundreds of volume sports photographers worldwide. The Next Gen system is a photographer-centric model, so their focus is on providing outstanding education and support services and constantly adding new design services and workflow tools for their customers. When Next Gen partnered with GotPhoto, it became a powerhouse all-in-one solution for volume sports photographers.
