I'm Katja. In a perfect world I'd spend all my time taking photographs of ponies, the people who love them, landscapes and architecture, and interesting characters on the street. I have an affinity for natural light and capturing everyday moments in unexpected ways.
My goal is to convey what I see through my lens - your spark, your story, and yes, your business's story - and transform that into stories people love and that provoke a feeling.
There's not a forest or copse of trees I won't photograph, and road trips are exponentially longer when I'm driving. Despite this, I am available for personal and commercial commissions that don't feature trees. Contact me about travel, landscape, and nature prints available for purchase, too.
Although I'd love to replicate my first camera and have another Miranda (or a new Nikon, if we're naming names), any camera that lets me take a photo is a good camera, and some of my favourite shots come from my phone.
Our shoots with Katja are at once both professional and relaxed; her calm demeanor and acute knowledge of our often nuanced campaign goals clearly show themselves in her vibrant work. Both our national campaigns and smaller, local clients alike receive the same level of attention to detail and result in creative, relatable, and modern imagery and campaigns for digital publishing and social platforms that are appreciated by clients and audiences alike, and we always look forward to working with her on projects of any size.

Katja has an incredible eye for detail and her images evoke an emotional response, whether it's of nature, people, or product flat lays. I love how Katja can be entrusted to get great images with little direction or is totally open to executing your vision. You can't go wrong.

I recently bought 6 prints from Katja. My only regret is that I don’t have more available wall space! It was very hard to limit it to 6 but the shelf had already been hung and frames purchased. Her selection of photos are amazing and unique. We fell in love with predominantly European themed pictures, but there are so many options for any space. The larger prints on the gallery paper are beautiful. The paper really makes the pictures pop and is so professional. I will be doing some rearranging so I can make room for more prints. Thanks for helping me with my project, Katja. I love the way you capture things in a picture. No more Ikea art for this girl.

Meet the Team
It's a team of one right now, although I should give a shout-out to the patient ponies who stand as stoic victims for my shots.
Traveller, gourmande, writer, horse crazy, gin snob.
Contact me via email, DM, or carrier pigeon to hire me or to order prints.
