Lecture: What's Your Legacy?
Location: Kendall Camera Club, March 27, 2008, 8 p.m. Theme: What’s Your Legacy. Description: You love photography. You aspire to produce great images. You study, search, experiment, stretch your ability, but to what end? Is it all about the perfect picture, the perfect edit, the perfect print? Is it about the money, awards or fame? What’s the point of your photography gift? At the end of your life, what will your legacy be? Join Kat as she takes you through the twists and turns of a photography journey that took a right turn toward these two questions — “is your photography purpose driven?” and “is perfection interfering with your ride?”
Kat’s book Hello Cuba was released in hard and soft bound version on December 19, 2007. To preview the book or to order your copy online, click on the “Books and Stuff” round button to the right or log on to Blurb.com and search “Cuba” in the travel section of the book store.

Platform Speaker, International Photography Conference
Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Trade Show, Las Vegas, April 9-11, 2006. On Monday, April 10, 2006 Kat presented a two hour lecture—Beyond Artistic Genius —at WPPI, an international photography convention which drew 9,000 visitors from around the world. “Teaching photographers and artists that marketing is about life, not about slick presentations or mass mailings, completes me as an artist. If you are not giving back to the trade, you are missing the heart of the artistic experience. This venue truly married my love of public speaking to my love of art and photograhy. I am so very grateful to the Professional Digital Imaging Association for sponsoring me and to Lexjet for making sure that I experienced Las Vegas in style.” More information is available.

More importantly, Kat talks about the importance of telling a story with your work. “Pretty images may be saleable. But images that tell stories sell themselves.”

Print to Sell: Making and Marketing Your Prints for Maximum Profit, June 9, 2005.
