I got into photography through Instagram. I graduated college with a degree in finance and did the corporate thing for several years but as my Instagram following started growing and I started getting really positive feedback I decided to take the plunge.

Kat uses not only her iPhone, but now also invests in professional cameras, and most of her work found on her Instagram is snapped with her trusty Fuji XE1/XT1 or Nikon D800.
