My photography journey

I'm Kat Clay, a travel and landscape photographer based in Melbourne, Australia.

Photographer Kat Clay in Montenegro

More than ten years ago, I was an amateur with a point and shoot camera. I didn’t know the first thing about photography, except that I loved taking photos. My life changed when I spent a year studying in France. One of the shots I took on my 3 megapixel point and shoot ended up winning a travel photography competition. That’s how I got my first DSLR, and I haven’t looked back.

These days I work in digital marketing and spend my vacations out in nature shooting landscape and travel photos. In 2012 I was a finalist in Travel Photographer of the Year, New Talent, and I’ve won more travel photography competitions since that first win, way back when. My creative work has been used by National Geographic and Lonely Planet, and viewed on major news programs and in newspapers. Sometimes I can’t quite believe the journey that little point and shoot has sent me on.
