Catherine Training for
Photography & Writing

Catherine's career as a copywriter launched in 2002. In addition to writing sales promotions, her skills expanded into researching, writing articles, ebooks, special reports, press releases, and more. 

Two projects changed her life. Catherine was hired to write a promotion on how to get paid to take photos ... and another, on blogging. 

Fast-forward to 2009, and Catherine started photography professionally. She's done portraits, wedding photos, editorial photos, stock images, and most recently, fine art. In 2013, Catherine started blogging which has evolved into this website you're now on!

Here's exactly where her training came from in case you're interested in professional photography and writing too ...

This program also included insights about stock photography which is a market Catherine now specializes in.
