London-based professional photographer specialised in portraiture and social documentary.

Whether through corporate photography, personal branding, press shots or social documentary, I see photography as an incredible tool for empathy, empowerment and exploration.  With a foundation in documentary photography I believe in authentic and sincere photography at all stages and in all genres. I see the best in people and it is always my aim to translate this through my work. At conception I look for the stories behind a person, product or brand in order to create narrative and resonant imagery in both my portraiture and lifestyle photography. For my bolder clients I produce statement images by utilising my passion for abstraction and defamiliaristation, and employing experimental techniques.

- "Through her unique approach, Katy uses her camera to capture unseen realities and reveal the depths of human emotion through her lens."

Alienor Salmon, UN Consultant and Founder of Bailando Journey


Over the last decade, I have worked with high-profile brands and businesses, local governments, non-profits, and the arts, with my work being featured in The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, and Vice. While working mostly in London and the UK, I frequently undertake international assignments, most recently in destinations such as Havana, Bangkok and Freetown. 

You can read more about my approach and thoughts on photography in this recent interview with Culture Is Free magazine.
