Kate is a very genuine, caring, understanding and hard working person with a strong passion and desire to deliver outstanding results. Her qualities show clearly in her photography, where she ensures she understands the brief, the audience and delivers outstanding results. Kate has helped me with Corporate Events, Direct Sales Events, Social Events / Parties and for individual headshots as well as individual product shots and lifestyle. Everytime the results go above and beyond expectations for all involved. Add to that her ability to make everyone she works with feel comfortable and at ease, even the very camera shy, I would highly recommend Kate.

Stephen Morris – OKA

I’ve twice found myself sitting (and standing) for business headshots with Kate. She is brilliant. She’s so personable and easy to chat to that you barely notice she’s working and the end results are always top quality, whatever the situation. And if she can make me look presentable, many would say she’s a miracle worker.

Kate. Pics are Wonderful. Our W hotel shoot was not an easy one to organise but you turn up and just nail it. We had limited time in each area but you always manage to not only capture exactly the right tone but you get every picture in the brief. We moved seamlessly through the day and the marketing team agree the pictures are superb. Such high quality images and exactly what I wanted. Just better! THANK YOU
