    I’ve known Katie as both a subject (she’s photographed me twice) and now as a student. I recently got my first DSLR to help take better photographs for my business as I was building my website but also for fun. I decided to sign up for a class at my local junior college which was great, but it didn’t go too deep into the technical aspects and I was feeling a bit lost and confused. With so much information out there on the internet and in books it can be overwhelming trying to learn photography on your own. Having Katie was just the personal lifeline “call a friend” I needed. She is very experienced as a photographer and so intelligent, but I find her easy to talk with and relate to which makes her an excellent teacher. She’s helped walk through several back end processes with me that has helped simplify my work flow so much. And her little tidbits on posing and lighting that she has shared with me are invaluable. I can’t wait to work with her more!
