Much better than we ever anticipated. Katie was an absolute pleasure to have onsite with us for this event. She was professional, thorough and went above and beyond to make sure she got the best photos. Everyone who came into contact with Katie absolutely loved her, we will definitely be using her again!” Clare Dawson, The Forum Group. 

“Excellent! Katie shot our public meeting on a hot day in a very crowded room and managed to capture a heap of amazing photos. Katie went above and beyond for our event.” Eleanor Nurse,  Communications manager for Jamie Parker MP.

“Katie is a real pro and you can see that in her work. Katie gave me a call before the shoot to find out what exactly I wanted and on the day, gave great directions and ideas. She was friendly, efficient and all round lovely!”

Hello! My name is Katie.  I live in Sydney, Australia, with my boyfriend (Richard) and my dog (Sibella). My background is marketing, strategic partnerships, natural health and real estate. I’m a people person through and through.

How did I get into photography?  When I was ten years old, my Dad bought me my  first ever Canon. I’m originally from London and grew up fascinated with the photographs I’d find in magazines. I’d pour through them, especially the interior magazines. I’ve always loved being creative and so when I started working I went into Advertising (as an Account Coordinator) and it soon became apparent I needed to be in Production, sourcing images especially. But hey, companies never like it when you say you don’t like your role, so I got made redundant. I chose that time to travel and ended up in Sydney – and haven’t left! That was nearly 15 years ago! My travel photos were pretty damm good, even though I was only using a compact camera. I realised I LOVED composition. I believe I totally honed my skill in those months travelling.

Track forward about 5 years and an ex bought himself a Canon 30D. We taught ourselves how to use it and would practice most weekends. More him than me to be honest! We landed our first paid wedding job in the first year and I haven’t looked back. That was in 2010. In 2013, Captar Photo was born. Captar is Spanish for Capture. Because from behind the lens all I want to do is Capture Life. Imprint magical moments to be treasured forever.

One thing that is really important to me is you. If you’re my client, you are my priority. I want to understand what you need, how you feel and then deliver my version of that through the lens back to you.

“Katie captured our wedding to perfection, she really understood what we wanted out of our wedding photos and made sure we got exactly the photos we wanted for amazing memories. 5 years later we are still looking through our photos on a regular basis. I would highly recommend Katie.”

Destination Shoots…

I’ve have been flown to Bali to photograph amazing spiritual retreats, London to do food shoots, weddings and events.

So where to from here?
