"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden..."
Mike Smith: "Katy_T - a force of nature... Katy: You are amazing, you are the bond that ties the artistic world together. You fill the voids between structures and add your form & beauty to the magic that is photography. I had the pleasure, honor, thrill and good fortune to shoot with Katy. I have not been the same since working with her. I feel that my own Artistic Vision will never be the same. From the beginning until the end I felt like I was in the presence of a 'Force of Nature,' Intelligent, Driven. An artistic partner - alive with ideas - not posed. She searched every moment of her movements for the perfect position. Between whatever objects she placed herself or any surface that she attached herself to - she became the force tying it all together in a composition of beauty - simple, elegant. ~~ Katy T - Thank You! A chance of a lifetime"

PLEASE NOTE - my chest is completely natural - it changes shape, depending on my body temperature (freezing = round & really perky, warm = more droplet shape) - yes, you can request which one
I use the friend request system as a mailing list, so if you send me a request I’ll assume you’re interested in scheduling a shoot with me at some point.
To save any misunderstandings I like to confirm all shoots by email, with the date, time and rate. Often I receive inquiries where someone will ask to be put down for a specific day and they assume it’s confirmed, even if I haven’t read the email yet. I don’t want you to lose out by making arrangements without my knowledge, or have a wrong impression of me professionally.
I’m originally from the south west coast of England, but I also have French and Israeli ancestry.
I’m a trained dancer, with a background also in choreography and acting. I’ve always been creative and love performing. When I’m not on stage I’m releasing my creative energy in front of your lens. I'm a spiritual person, so I give much more to my shoots than just a pose. I take a very active role in the creative process.
Some confuse me for being a ballet dancer. My style is contemporary, but I did do a little classical and pointe work. If you're wanting a classical shoot I would recommend hiring a ballet dancer for that, otherwise I can offer you my main style as you see and limited pointe work.
Sorry, but I DON’T DO TFP. I’m an 11 year international professional. When you hire me, please see me as an investment, like your camera gear, just that I will bring the captured image to life. Likewise, you are the one that makes it possible for me to travel and keep creating this work, so thank you
I’m natural (no enhancements), no surgery, scars or tattoos. I invest time and money into keeping myself healthy and trim so I can look my best for each shoot. That means also rationing my mocha frappucchinos!
I always recommend shooting me in my area of expertise (art nude). This is where you'll get me at my best. Please look over my portfolio to get an idea of my style so you can take advantage of my skills and what I have to offer. These shoots are a collaboration, where I bring my style and merge it with yours, to create unique and meaningful art, so there has to be freedom for us both to work.
As a guide, my work shows my style and comfort levels. I'm not interested in anything untasteful, no adult work, bondage or pay websites.
I treat every shoot with a fresh attitude, so you will always work with me at my best. I don’t turn up just to get paid, I do really care about the work we’re creating and want you to be pleased with the images. After all these years I still get excited about the results from each shoot!
I prefer, and actually crave, ongoing collaborations, rather than fly-by shoots. I like the creative connection that grows over the years. I’ve been working with some of the same photographers for 7-10 years and those connections are invaluable.
If possible I prefer a closed set. I’m not opposed to someone helping with lighting/sets in between, but I prefer the one-one collaboration without that third person as a distraction when we’re trying to connect creatively. I've also had numerous bad experiences with jealous wives, underage male assistants, friends assisting that just wanted to watch me nude and some that took over the entire shoot. I just want to create with you and have no distractions.
Unfortunately I no longer do workshops, just because I find the quality goes down when multiple people are shooting at once, and the quality is important to me. However, I do accept hourly time slots in a studio, where there is more focus on one-one and creative collaboration. If you have a studio I'm interested in discussing this with you.
I ask that you please value my time, as I do yours. Planning trips is a long process and it gets frustrating when I receive last minute cancellations. Please realize I have to budget for flights, hotels, rental car, gas and other expenses in advance of these trips, and often I have to turn others away for your time slot. If I’m already on the trip I will likely not receive your cancellation email, needless to say I also won’t have time to fill the time slot either. If you need to cancel please give me notice so it doesn’t affect my trip.
I usually confirm shoots once by email and it’s then set in stone in my calendar, so I will be there as agreed.
I'm that model that will do anything to create "that" image. Past shoots have included (but not limited to) shooting in the snow, underwater, up a tree, mountain or frozen lake in the Alps. I will be there and will bring my creativity, regardless of my comforts. (Hot chocolate wouldn't go amiss in snowy climates though)
Please don't feel intimidated by my work and experience. I’m patient with those who are new to the genre. I also don't believe in 'levels,' I believe in creating great imagery, so if you love photography and being creative then we'll have a great shoot. Every photographer has a different eye, which is what makes every image unique. Some of my favorite work in my portfolio was created with beginners.
I look forward to creating with you!
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE TAGS, COMMENTS & KIND WORDS. I TRAVEL A LOT SO DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TIME TO REPLY TO EVERYONE, BUT I DO READ AND APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE ONE. I WORK HARD, SO IT'S NICE TO HAVE MY WORK APPRECIATED BY OTHERS. PLEASE ALSO STOP BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER PORTFOLIOS, BECAUSE THE IMAGES WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THEM
ON A SIDE NOTE, PLEASE DO AS I DID AND ADOPT AN ANIMAL THAT NEEDS A HOME. MANY ARE EUTHANIZED DAILY AND DESERVE A CHANCE: ANIMAL SHELTER AND ADOPT AN ANIMAL

"Katy is one of the best models I have ever worked with. She is so personable and a very caring soul. She has helped me so much along my journey I simply can't say enough good things about her."
"Katy is one of the finest figure models I have had the pleasure to work with. She has an unparalleled sense of composition and seems to naturally conform her body with her surroundings to create stunningly artistic and natural feeling images. I highly recommend her for any art... project you have in mind!" more less
"Katy is absolutely the most wonderful and gracious model I have ever worked with. Beauty, grace, and drive all wrapped up in one package. Her portfolio speaks for its self."
"Heart & Soul in every photo"
