Hey, I'm Kate.

I am a freelance creative, which includes being a photographer, educator, speaker, and traveler that calls Victoria, British Columbia, home.  I've been freelancing full-time since 2012, on an epic adventure that's taken me all around the world, and back. As a writer I specialize in cultural criticism, photo essays and photo narratives, and photo-education. As a travel photographer I specialize in portraiture, street / candid, humanitarian and documentary work, and running workshops abroad. 
I am a Sony Canada Imaging Ambassador, and proudly shoot with Sony gear. Former Canon girl. 
I am experienced at, and am deeply passionate about, educating people on photography and/or travel photography ethics. I give talks, lead discussions, or produce quality keynote speeches on these topics. I am also available for in-person mentorship for Victoria area photographers, or online mentorship worldwide.  I have been teaching travel photography online since 2012 in a major online school, including writing both the novice and advanced courses on the subject. 
Outside of freelancing, I am Operations Manager of The Giving Lens, running the day-to-day and long term operations of this incredible organization. Part of this involves leading international photography workshops, taking teams of photographers abroad to volunteer their time and skill with amazing non-profits around the world. You could say it is a dream job for me, combining my deep passions of giving back, photography, and travel.
