My name is Katie Arnold and I was born in Hastings where I now live with my husband, two children and a selection of animals.  I have been taking photograph's all my life and believe that everyone should have at least one iconic shot of themselves and their loved ones.  

I was a bit hesitant to start promoting myself as a photographer for hire, as for me, the best shots are those where the person does not actually know that the photo is being taken.  This is where my passion for street photography comes from.  Capturing a one off moment that encapsulates human life on the planet, on a given date and time.   A piece of art never to be recreated again.

My professional background is in recruitment - a business in which I am still involved albeit in more of the design and website management.  One of the biggest skills a photographer needs to have is the ability to get on with people and make them feel at ease.  My bookings come from people who want to be able to have fun and relax while having their photo taken.  I do not have a lightroom preset that I apply to all my photos.  I try to get it all right in camera to accurately portray the moment as it happened.  And above all, I watch for moments that are just special and interesting and unique.  

If you have an idea or would like to discuss booking me, please do get in touch via my facebook page or call me on 07958699504.
