Me + My Approach
Oh, hi there! Nice to e-meet you.
I’m Katharine—aka “Kate”—and I’m obsessed with 3 things:
Like a handful of you reading this, I moved to NYC to be an actor. A couple years ago, I saved up for some fresh, new headshots—with a reputable photographer—and was stunned to see a result that didn’t particularly look like me, or reflect my personality, at all. I was terribly disappointed, since—as you know—acting isn’t the most lucrative business and I had been ecstatic to snag new shots.
I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands—to tell human stories using photography and to accurately represent the unique light in each human I shot. I had been wanting to purchase a nice, current camera (to replace the hobbyist DSLR I'd been using for years), and this moment--these photos that looked nothing like me--told me it was time. I went big and purchased some pretty snazzy equipment, and dove headlong into reading books, taking courses, and studying the art of photography. I confess: I remain obsessed and madly in love with this art--and this opportunity to study the beauty of humans. I’ve also made it a point to shoot nearly every single day since. While I’m constantly evolving, learning, and finding new + unique ways to better my work, I can tell you this: I feel incredibly comfortable behind the camera, getting to know you as a human and artist, and capturing your light for the world (…and casting directors) to see. It’s important to me that we not only get a shot of you looking your absolute best, but also that we get shots that reflect what makes you YOU.
