"We knew from your reputation that we were going to get an excellent job done but working with you we realise for the first time what efforts go into producing just the right images - showing off our apartments, garden and grounds to the best possible effect. Your attention to detail was so obvious and you were fanatical in making sure every element of each photograph was well set and in it’s proper place.


We found it so easy to work with you from giving you the initial brief, working with you on the day and of course the final production - at every stage you made sure we were getting just what we wanted and when we were unsure you were proactive with your professional suggestions and ideas. Your photos have greatly enhanced the marketing of our business and we have seen a real uptake in enquiries and bookings since the photos went live on our site." - Bob Garner, Casal Dei Fichi




“Katy is a fun and exiting photographer to work with. Her skill of blending the commercial requirements of a shoot with the her artist talents resulting in beautiful images which would look equally at home in a brochure or hanging in a gallery” - Craig Falconer, Creative Director, North55




“I’ve worked with Katy many times over the last 10 years. Katy is able to capture beautiful pictures, putting her subject at ease within minutes and is hands down the best photographer I’ve ever worked with. Her professionalism is second to none and what’s more she makes any shoot fun. I can’t recommend her highly enough” - Gemma Holmes, Odyl Design
