My name is Kat and I specialise in capturing high quality, colourful and natural environmental and lifestyle portraits that truly showcase the personality and story of the people in them, be it a small business, individual, couple, family or children, in a stress free and fun environment.
I have had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember, starting off with pinching my brothers point and shoot 35mm film camera to take photos of family, friends and our animals before getting my own little 35mm camera when I was about 12.
In the early years I mainly took photos of family, friends, animals and landscapes, but after getting my first 35mm SLR in 1999 at the age of 18 I combined my love of photography with my love of watching live music and spent many years capturing magic moments of my friends bands and my favourite artists performing anything from a small pub gig to a large festival. This is still something I love to do in my spare time and I have had my work published in various magazines and used on CD covers, websites, social media and promotional materials. In 2018, 2019 and 2021 I was awarded the ICMA Award for Most Popular Photographer, which recognises the support that photographers give to Independent Australian Country Music Artists.
Although I got my first film SLR in 1999, and that's when my real love of photography began, it has only been in the last five years that I have started to take it beyond just being a hobby. I have always loved capturing special and candid moments in time and have been doing a mixture of professional promotional shoots for musicians, family lifestyle photo shoots and event photography and completed a Diploma of Photo Imaging in 2019, which helped to build both my photography and business skills.
While COVID slowed things down a bit for me, and many others, I'm keen to get back to doing what I love best, capturing magical and memorable moments for my clients, so whether your due for some new family photos, need some promotional shots for your business or band or have a special event coming up contact me to talk about your needs and book in a photo shoot.
