About Photography by Kate
I have always had a love for photography. From a young age there was a camera in my hand. This passion was inspired by my dad who is a talented photographer himself. I have fond memories of dad taking photographs at all events and posing for family photographs with my mum and 3 sisters. It was dad who gave me my first SLR at 12, a Pentax P30. Being a completely manual film camera, it taught me a huge amount and this has been an invaluable gift.
As time went on, I continued my interest in photography by studying it in year 12 and then completing an Advanced Diploma of Photography (Commercial) at TAFE SA. Nature has always been my favourite subject to photograph with a special love for landscape and close up (macro). It was while completing my major at TAFE in landscape and macro photography that I fell in love with these genres even more.
From a young age I knew that nature photography would be my ideal job. Knowing there aren’t many positions that fit this criteria, I knew I would have to create it myself. Photography by Kate started in October 2013 with a card range of 10 designs. As time has passed, my business has expanded. My greeting card range now consists of more than 40 cards and exciting new products like gift tags and postcards have been added.
I am a proud South Australian and Australian, hence all my products are either printed in Adelaide or made in Australia. As there are so many talented and quality business in Adelaide, I love to support them.
I call myself a creation photographer as it is a great way to describe the world around us. It fits the beautiful natural, God made creation that surrounds us; the man made creation that humans have made like buildings and jetties; and the artistic scenes that we create like the ones that depict Christmas and birthdays.
I am married to Jeff and have two children; Samuel and Chloe. To me, family is incredibly important and they are a big part of my life.
I want to use creation photographs to create quality products that bring peace into our lives. I want to make purchasing beautiful photographs that encourage, inspire, console and celebrate any occasion, easy.
