About Kate Hollister

I have always had a love for photography. From a young age there was a camera in my hand. This passion was inspired by my dad who is an talented photographer himself. I have fond memories of dad taking photographs at all events and posing for family photographs with mum and my 3 sisters. It was dad who gave me my first SLR at 12, a Pentax P30. Being a completely manual film camera taught me a huge amount and has been an invaluable gift.

As time went on I continued my photography by studying it as a year 12 subject and then going on to complete an Advanced Diploma of Photography (Commercial) at TAFE SA. Nature has always been my favorite subject to photograph with a special love for landscape and close up (macro). It was in my final semester at TAFE when completing my major in landscape and macro that I fell in love with this genre more.

I graduated from TAFE in early 2010. Finding work doing portrait photography was when I discovered that my photography career lay in a different direction. I worked in administration for a few years before starting Photography by Kate in October 2013.

While photography is my main passion, I am an avid reader enjoying nothing more than sitting down with a chai latte and a sci fi or fantasy book. I am also part of my local church.

I am married to Jeff and have a young son Samuel. To me, family is incredibly important and they are a big part of my life.

I would love nothing more than to hear from you if you have any questions or comments. I hope you enjoy my photography as it shows the beauty of this world we live in.
