photographer katie graham








Is it possible to tell someone loves their job through the work they produce? I think so. These photos are from the portfolio of photographer Katie Graham. She switched from a career in magazines to focussing on children's portraiture.

Which five words best describe you? Happy, spontaneous, inquisitive,
impatient and grateful.
How did you get your career start and what path have you taken since? Working as a temp in the subscriptions department of ACP publishing when The Bulletin was being relaunched. My job was the opposite end of the spectrum to interesting or glamorous, but I was instantly caught up in the whole energy of the place. I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to stay and in my 10 years there, worked closely with amazing editors, publishers and marketing teams, who were such creative and inspiring women to work with.
What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt along the way? "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got".
What’s your proudest career achievement? Working in such an energetic and creative industry for a long time and now having the ability to do something creative and earn a living on my own terms.
What’s been your best decision? Following my heart to Australia.
Who inspires you? My family. They define who I am. What life is about. And what is beautiful to me. They explain why I am drawn to photographing the things I do.
What are you passionate about? Beautiful light, making photographs, finding inspiration in ordinary every day things.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? Vincent van Gogh and my great grandparents.
What dream do you still want to fulfil? To run the London marathon together with my dad, brother and twin sister.
What are you reading? Elliott Erwitt Personal Best. Plus more than my fair share of magazines! And inspirational blogs.

I totally admire so many lines in this interview but the one the most was: "What’s your proudest career achievement? Working in such an energetic and creative industry for a long time and now having the ability to do something creative and earn a living on my own terms." Can't wait to SAY THIS LINE!
