Hi, I'm Kate.

 Visiting Aoraki Mt Cook National Park.

Visiting Aoraki Mt Cook National Park.

I’m a writer and photographer  based in Sydney, Australia.

Much of my photography and writing deals with nature, and environmental protection — including examinations of mining projects that threaten the environment and climate, and the communities called to activism around these threats.

My photographs have appeared in publications including The Guardian, Sydney Morning Herald, Newcastle Herald, The Land, SBS, ABC, Junkee, Vice, Crinkling News, HuffPost, The Conversation, and BuzzFeed.

I studied communications and journalism and have a degree in media and cultural studies. I've worked with both corporate and nonprofit organisations on digital communications projects including campaign strategy, website development, graphic design, copywriting, and search engine optimisation.


I'm a keen bushwalker and enjoy sharing stories and photographs from my trips on my blog and Instagram. I believe wholeheartedly in the restorative power of nature and reckon we'd all be better off if we spent more time out in the bush.

Other stuff I'm into

Roadtrips to the country, reading, writing, these guys, finding new places to photograph, and hiking.

Book, Film, & Podcast Recommendations

📖 Right now I'm reading Kate Leaver's The Friendship Cure, as well as dipping in and out of Patti Smith's M Train, and Oliver Sacks' The River of Consciousness.

🎥 I recently saw Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures, which was every bit as enthralling as you'd expect anything about Robert Mapplethorpe to be.

🎧 Having finished reading Dolly Alderton's Everything I Know About Love, I've begun listening to The High Low, a weekly pop culture and news podcast that Alderton co-hosts with fellow journalist Pandora Sykes.
