Cat is a talented, professional and friendly photographer.
She worked with me to create stunning, high-res product imagery for my brand. As a start up, the quality of work she provided me with was invaluable to my business and assisted me to break into the market. She conducted herself extremely professionally and consulted with me many times before the shoot to ensure we were obtaining the results I wanted. She came organised on the day with equipment and lighting and provided great direction to the model. I was really impressed that she took the initiative to get some close up campaign style shots as well, which worked well for my social media channels. Cat went above and beyond the original brief provided to her and I am so appreciative. Her retouching and editing was second to none and she turned it all around in a timely and efficient manner. I would highly recommend Cat for your next project, especially if you are a clothing or apparel brand - this lovely lady will guide you through the process and provide excellent results. Thanks again Cat!

''Our company enlisted the help of Cat to take some professional head shots of our Melbourne-based team. From the moment I made contact via her website, Cat was professional, helpful, communicative, and wonderful to deal with; I couldn't recommend her highly enough!
Prior to the day of the head shots - which were take "on location" near our Melbourne office - Cat spent some time exploring the local area and was able to suggest a few different locations and backdrops to take the images. On the day she encouraged us to have photographs taken at a number of these different spots to ensure we got a good breadth of colour / lighting/backgrounds to choose from.
Cat's speed of post-processing was amazing - within 48 hours of the photo-shoot, Cat supplied us with a gallery of lo-res images to choose from, then followed up with the hi-res images 24 hours after we made our selections.
Every employee who had their head shots taken has since commented on both the superb quality of the images, and Cat's fantastic personality and approach on the day. In particular, she made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, ensuring our "best side" was captured.''

In our experience with Catherine, we have worked with studio as well as on site - working with still food, food prep, lifestyle including children and at all times the output from Catherine has been to the highest possible level. Her work speaks for its self - and this steams from Catherine's professionalism and attention to detail.
We enjoy working with Catherine and will continue to do so.''

Her images have a timeless quality that bring to mind the sights and sounds of fairground, childhood memories tinged with nostalgia and the possibility of what may be just beyond the veil of what her camera lens so magically captures. I love her work.''

"Cat is an incredibly talented photographer. Her ability to combine technical excellence with real personality and style is a gift.
Catherine has the unique ability to capture a story in her subjects. As a small business owner, I recently engaged Cat to take a series of head shots for me for professional use. I am so thrilled with the result. I use them for everything, as they say so much about my personality and my business that transcends words.
I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone seeking original and beautiful photos, that will stand the test of time."

''Catherine Black is one of the most professional, passionate and creative photographers I have worked with in 7 years as editor of FasterLouder. She leant her skills as assistant to Australia’s leading music photographer Daniel Boud on a backstage studio shoot at Splendour In The Grass Festival for our site in 2013. In a highly stressful environment, working long and unpredictable hours Catherine stayed composed, enthusiastic and showed a unique ability to think creatively under pressure. Artists that participated in our photo shoot included James Blake, The National, Empire Of The Sun, Jake Bugg and the results are testament to her skill and dedication.''
Editor In Chief at FasterLouder, Australia
''Catherine is an exceptional photographer; she understands the needs of her clients and works to an outstandingly high standard. In our initial meeting, Catherine took the time and effort to not only get to know my business, but also the needs and expectations of my clients. This ensured that our photo shoot was both efficient and carefully considered. Her images were creative, diverse and most importantly they accurately represented our high standard of work. Catherine was a pleasure to work with I highly recommend her services. ''
''I would like to thank you for the photographs that you took of my cafe. I feel that you genuinely captured the essence of what the cafe is about. You have such a great eye for detail and the evidence of this is presented in each photograph. Some of which are now hanging on my sisters wall!
Thanks again. I will definitely be looking you up for the next photo shoot!''
