I love to photograph people, whether it’s kids in my studio or on location (see www.catherinecattanach.com) or headshots for business people and actors (www.goodheadshots.co.nz).

I am a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, and was named NZIPP Wellington Photographer of the Year in 2018, NZIPP Creative Photographer of the Year in 2016 and NZIPP Classic Portrait Photographer of the Year in 2014. I have represented New Zealand in the portrait section of the World Photographic Cup in 2014, and was also a portrait finalist in the 2016 international HeadOn Photo Festival in Sydney. Recent exhibitions include Lustre (2016) and Eryngium (2018).
