It’s pronounced Katara {Kuh-tair-uh}. I shoot people. Mostly advertising images, real estate photos and editorial content. When time allows, I also shoot weddings, families, newborns etc…


I’m not afraid of heights. From flying upside down in an acrobatic airplane to skydiving with an 80 year-old on her birthday...I’ve had at least one rough landing in a hot-air balloon, many rides in experimental aircraft/small planes and most recently I was allowed to fly-along with the US Army’s Golden Knights Parachute Team.  All in the name of photography.


Currently, I am a freelance photographer for newspapers, magazines and corporate clients such as Florida Hospital.  For about 10 years, I was a staff photographer at the News Sun, before that I spent several years working full-time as a photojournalist for the Highlands Today, a daily newspaper. 


I am a visual storyteller who can bring real and lasting value to your story. I create meaningful, shareable content-oozing with authenticity.
