CDNPhotographer Interview with Fashion Photographer Katie Sadie
I will always remember the first time I was printed. It was for The Wa, an arts magazine published in Toronto, Ontario. The issue theme was “daredevil” and ironically I nearly burned a house down while shooting the story.
My first camera was a Minolta 35 mm that was given to me by my parents when I was in high school.
After realizing photography could be more than a hobby, I dropped out of college for Social Work and went to Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning for Photography.
I would describe my style of photography as an edgy, mood driven and melancholic interpretation of current fashion trends.
My bag is very simple. I have one flash, one reflector, and my Canon 5d III. I have the most fun photographing outdoors with natural light.
I am inspired by various artists who aren’t afraid of experimenting with different mediums and are always evolving. Specifically, I enjoy the works of another local Toronto artist, Luis Mora.
I would start my own print publication!
It is important to “pay your dues” or do some of the grunt work for a while. I am still doing some of the grunt work and it is starting to pay off but I still have a long, long way to go before I have achieved anything substantial.
To see a video and photoshoot I am really proud of check out this photo story called WILDFOX on my website and watch the video below
