Meet the Creatives: Katherine Dorrington

Meet Katherine!

I am a photographer and stylist who loves working with flowers and the natural world. I offer product photography and social media content for creative business. I love books, I’m addicted to magazines and I enjoy searching for the perfect vintage objects to add to vignettes. I’m have two girls, aged 5 and 8, and when I’m not spending time with them you can generally find me in the garden or dreaming of travel.

Q&A with Katherine Dorrington

How would you describe your creative style?
I’d say my creative style is layered and often features a botanical element. I love moody images and scenes and love playing with natural light.

What kind of equipment do you use?
Canon 6D - my favourite lens at the moment is a 50mm and a recent purchase of a 70-200mm which I love! I also use my iPhone 7 Plus and edit with Lightroom on my desktop and vsco on my phone.

Can you tell us why the you love this week’s theme?
If you take a peek at my Instagram account you will see how heavily florals feature in my photography, I’m completely obsessed.

I love the depth of colour and texture, and I think this photo portrays a rich mood.

This is one of my favourite images as it contains some of the flowers I adore, the layering and composition works well and it’s visually arresting (in my opinion!)

This image really evokes a sense of happiness in me as I took it one afternoon at my mum’s property in Dwellingup after raiding her rose garden for flowers and her cupboard for vintage treasures. I think the light really sings in this image with the vintage cut crystal. It was the product of some happy faffing!
