I have worked with Kat Blackwell on several occasions now. She is always punctual, professional and is extremely talented in her craft of capturing moments whether it be stills/portrait shoots or at live gigs. She loves live music and that clearly comes across in her work in the shots she has taken at the hundreds of gigs she has photographed . She always seems to be able to capture those 'magical' moments at gigs. I highly recommend Kat Blackwell for all your photography needs!!

I first met Kat at a music festival back in 2013. Since then she has taken literally hundreds of photos for me. She's great to work with and reasonably priced. She was my first choice for my album cover.

Kat photographed quite a number of our Aboriginal Cultural Showcase events at the Tamworth Country Music Festival this year and we luuurrve the photos! - heaps of angles, stunning light and clever captures that have preserved the motion, emotion, intensity and joy of the event.

I have no hesitation in recommending Kat Blackwell as I hired her to take the photos at my daughter's wedding, which was on Sydney Harbour. Her work was at an extremely high standard and her eye for detail impeccable. She was reliable, very well presented and had excellent communication skills. We have wonderful memories of the day with very professional and unforgettable photos.

Kat is a rare gem matching every ounce of creative talent with reliable, professional and diligent business and admin skills. Add to this mix a broad knowledge and skills set ranging from web, graphics and social media marketing to genuine people skills and Kat cannot be overlooked for a role in your business or endeavour. If you want someone that you can rely on, look no further.

Katherine Blackwell is a very talented young photographer. She has a keen eye for balance, colour, movement and emotional content which makes her a true artist and her commitment to the project is unparalleled in today's "money first" world. Katherine's talents also run into administration and management (for both of which I am deeply indebted). Katherine basically gets it right and meets the deadline with a minimum of fuss and a professional attitude which at the end of the day is paramount. Her great sense of humor and likable nature will carry her a long way and I wish her all the success she has time for. I would not hesitate in recommending Katherine for any employment opportunity. She is one of the few people I can really count on.

Absolutely stunned by the photos you took of us Sunday night. Fantastic to reminisce on a great gig with photos of the highest points of the night. How you can see "those moments" about to happen and capture them on film is amazing. You have taken the greatest, most powerful photos of our band. Thank you so much Kat, you rock. Love & respect always

The testiment for Kat's love of live music is her photography. I know that if we (Grant Walmsley and the Agents of Peace) are lucky enough to see her at a gig we're going to get more usable pics than we know what to do with. From a nice moment, to the drunk spilling a scooner on your pedal board... she gets live Aussie music. Thanx Kat love from the Agents.

Katherine..Kat...there's something special about this creative young woman! Her passion for music is obvious, like her flair for art and design. Kat put together the CD slick for both of Buddy Knox's albums, 'got da blues' and '', and also his advertisement in the Woodford program!! Buddy was thrilled with the final result! I cannot rave enough about her talent, and her delightful and helpful nature. Kat gets the job done with no fuss!

Kat has a razor sharp talent for taking live music shots. Not only has she perfected the craft of mood lighting and capturing emotion, Kat made me feel uninhibited and almost completely unaware that she was at the foot of the stage, snapping away with her almighty camera lens. It’s great to be able to perform whole heartedly without being distracted by a photographer and that is Kat. Clearly a hard working freelance artist, Kat is welcoming and more than accommodating. I wish her every success.

Katherine Blackwell has a fantastic eye for photography and she has an uncanny ability to capture the moment in a single snap. Katherine is passionate about photography and live music, which is possibly why her photos stand out. Katherine, you did some truly amazing photographic work at An Enchanted Eve 2010. You captured the essence of the evening in your pictures. We hope you come along to some of our future events too.... thanks for sharing :)

Hey there Kat, Just wanted to say how impressed we all are with your calibre of photography. Brilliantly capturing moments in time, with the sheer prowess of a true professional!!!
TOM McLEOD (Australian Music and Entertainment Scene - online music & entertainment network)
"Katherine Blackwell" ... This is "Kat" she was the photographer the other night on the first gathering of the "Underground City Blues Jam" in Sydney. She did an incredible job on all the shots despite the lighting in an underground blues basement environment. Once we all started playing she was everywhere! She even managed to get a few shots of me that turned out alright ... something hard to do ... lol). Kat's passion is music as it is her motivation and medium. If you work with Kat you will be doing yourself a big favour.
PHILLIP SAWYERS (Bootleg Recording Services)
Kat, I just checked out your amazing body of work from Broadbeach. You are a true craftsperson. I'm so pleased you captured Baby Legs' doing his thing aloft the vending machine. Pure joy.
