Kate, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Photographer?

Kate started on her journey as a photographer in between other endeavours (science degree then work than children), and slowly it emerged as a passion that tied life together.

Who is your inspiration in life Kate? How do you stay inspired as a Photographer?

I am inspired by photographers Paolo Roversi and Peter Lindbergh and painters Pino and Czaba Markus Kate endeavours to display women and the beauty of their strength in a sensitive yet unapologetic way.

We all make mistakes Kate; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?

The biggest mistake is not listening to your instinct... if your whole being is screaming do this, then do it. Conversely, if it is saying stop, look at the situation and try and take a break and see what other opportunities arise.

Kate, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?

Kate is friendly, talkative and endeavours to ensure that the clients brief is met.

Please tell us, Kate, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

The family is always the number one priority, with everything else slotted in between!

Kate, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

When Kate was accepted to be published by magazines.

Kate, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer.

To have Kate's work featured.

Kate, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

When Kate started combining fine art elements (like paintings) in photographs, getting to fit together seamlessly was the hardest aspect.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Do not give up. Find your passion in your genre and explore it.
