About Catherine


Catherine is an adventure photographer and filmmaker based in Colorado. From the beaches of Israel to the slot canyons of Utah, from remote islands in the Pacific to as far as Western Australia, Catherine’s explorations through the lens have taken her around the world. She thrives with a camera in hand — and lives the adventures she captures. When she’s not shooting, she’s playing in mountains, deserts and oceans far away from crowded cities and civilization.

Catherine is also an ambassador for GoPro and aims to share her vision, passion and stoke through documenting her own adventures.

Her work has been featured by National Geographic Adventure and her awards include first place in the GoPro Mountain Click Photo Competition at the 2016 & 2014 GoPro Mountain Games. Most recently, her personal short film project, "My Desolate Eden," won Best Cinematography during its premiere at No Man's Land Film Festival. 

She is based out of Carbondale, CO and is available to travel.
