Photographer Kat Wicks
(All photographs featured on this page are taken by Kat)
I first got into photography when I attended art college briefly, learning how to use cameras and develop the photos yourself, before digital rolled out. Even then preferring animal and wildlife subjects. Then for a few years I took to event photography for local music events I was attending and with the development of good affordable cameras found my way to macro photography. I love to capture nature and have settled on wildlife and landscape photography, turning some of them into prints, patterns and motifs.
What was your most memorable photographic event?
Arriving in Spain on my honeymoon to a sky filled with lenticular clouds, one of them forming into a heart shape!
Which is your favourite photo and why?
The lenticular space cloud, I was so impressed to see that.
What is your favourite piece of gear?
Which area of photography do you specialise in?
Macro photography and cloudy landscapes
Which camera type do you use and which is your favourite camera (or lens)?
A Nikon D5500 with a Nikkor 85mm lens
From a purely photographic point of view where would you most like to visit?
I think I would love to visit Iceland, the idea of being able to photograph the aurora sky and ice features is extremely appealing. But I have also fallen in love with Spain and love the UK landscape but visited those places. So, Iceland.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
I have recently taken to animating some of my sky and landscape photography and am enjoying this very much.
