Catherine discovered her passion for photography during her sophomore year of high school on a field trip to Yosemite National Park. The class arrived at night, the weather was clear, and a full moon hung in the sky lighting up the monstrous granite landscape. The next morning she went to a local gallery in Yosemite Valley and was introduced to the work of Ansel Adams. That was it; she has been shooting away every since. To capture light has been her goal.

Catherine’s grandfather was a naturalist , botanist, and an ornithologist. He was always collecting and observing the plants and wildlife on his ranch, and he worked as a conservationist for the parks and wildlife department in California. Every moment Catherine spent with him was a lesson in the special importance of each and every living thing, a close up of what he deemed the big picture. Catherine returns to his lessons every time she sees light falling on one of these beautiful objects.

Having received a BS from the rigorous School of Photography, Brooks Institute, Catherine has lead her life as both a commercial and fine art photographer.
