What our clients think:
I run an online store and needed some product photography for a promotion I was running. I needed the images in a hurry, a friend recommended I contact Katrina, a well founded recommendation. Not only did Katrina understand the brief and create fantastic photos that enveloped what I needed, she did this quickly and affordably.
Since then I have also updated my business portraits, Katrina puts you completely at ease, her professionalism is certainly reflected in the quality of the product you get.

Main Course and KidzKitchen were in the process of developing a new website and urgently required some new and exciting images to support the vision we had in mind.
Catchlight Photography came highly recommended to Main Course as a company who specialised in food photography. We were impressed by the approach taken by Katrina, from the initial visit and advice given in preparation for the photo shoot.
The actual shoot went extremely well and the images that were presented to us very promptly looked fantastic. The company who developed the website were impressed and we have received lots of favourable feedback from our clients regarding our new look website.
In summary, it was great to work with a professional who clearly knew what they were doing and was able to interpret the vision we had and transfer this to the images we now have.
Many thanks once again.
Sonya Oyston - Master Chef, Main Course
I was rebranding and repositioning my business to create a more approachable look and feel and needed images and video to create a real person feel. The old imagery on the website was too formal and corporate looking.
My clients now say that they love the video and they can really connect with me as a real person and this piques their interest so that they want to make an appointment to have a chat with me to explore whether or not what I offer in career coaching is what they want.
I was so afraid of putting my “real” self out there that as the day of the photography and videoing approached I was very nervous. Catchlights Photography were a delight to work with and were able to put me at my ease so that I could relax and be myself. The team were professional and focused and worked very hard all day to get the imagery they wanted. And the results speak for themselves.
Until the feedback from customers I was still nervous about how my new look would be received but as time went on and client after client sang the praises of the video and the website images, I knew I had worked with a winning team and that felt really good.
I would recommend Catchlights Photography to anyone who wants to tell their story using imagery and photography... they will do a fabulous job for you.
Thank you for all the work you did.... my clients and prospects LOVE the video and the images on the website. You have managed to portray me as a real human being with warmth and approachability.
Thank you, thank you!
Rachel Hill - Coach & Mentor
I was needing a professional photographer to do a photo shoot for my new website. I saw the quality of Katrina`s work and acquired her expertise to do the shoot for me. My old website had amateur photos that were just, well, amateur! Now the difference is unbelievable. The photo’s Katrina did are so crisp and clear and really make the website pop!
Katrina did such a great job, from choosing a perfect location, to getting cars, people and babies in just the right angles, she made it all very easy.
I am now very proud of my new website thanks to Katrina and Catchlights Photography.

Return to Sender have used Catchlights Photography before and were impressed with the service and end results. It was a no-brainer to choose them again.
Our photos from previous photographers were fine, however recently our sister companies started to use Catchlights which has ensured uniformity in the style which is especially important when utilising each other's photos.
Katrina was fabulous to work with, we bounced ideas off each other and are extremely pleased with the result. This was the first time we had team photos, Katrina seemed to capture the spirit of each of team members whilst telling a story of our business. After the photography session, we were confident that the images would be great and they were. Catchlights provided a quick turn around including images of products that were clear cut. Return to Sender credits Catchlights ability to manage the photo shoot from the initial storyboard to the delivered images with ease and professionalism.
Julie Gilchrist - Production Manager, Return to Sender
When we needed new product shots for our website, brochures and point-of-sale material we asked Katrina at Catchlights to do the job. It was a great decision. She went out of her way to understand our business objectives and the impact we wanted from the images.
The result was a beautiful portfolio of shots that are working hard for our business and I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to achieve their commercial goals.
Greg Webster - General Manager, Topflite
We have used Catchlights services on a number of our clients marketing needs and have always received a high level of service and most importantly a great result for our clients. Katrina has a great creative eye and understanding on what the best shot will be to showcase products and services. What we value is her quick response and great ability to come up with concepts that add value to what the clients needs are. We have used many photographers in the past but Catchlights are by far the first call due to the easy process, and ability to get that great shot that meets the brief every time.
Richard Neunzerling - General Manager, Right Hand Man
I really appreciated your professional eye and thorough approach to our photo shoot. The results provided us with superb images and I will be in touch again when we complete our renovations. I thank you for your excellent service and will recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.
Gareth Jones - General Manager, Mt Richmond Hotel
I needed some new photo’s to show off my business and after looking around found Katrina of Catchlights Photography to be extremely approachable and very professional in her approach. My website has had a huge lift with the fresh photos that Catchlights provided. Katrina was extremely easy to work with and was great at selecting the best angles and shots to give me a large variety to choose from. I now feel that I have a range of extremely good professional photos to use for any future advertising purposes. I would recommend Katrina to give anyone the professional photos that they would require.
Paul Lofroth - Owner, Throw 'N Tow
I have retained Catchlights Photography for a number of client assignments, particularly corporate public relations and editorial opening events. Katrina made people feel at ease and worked smoothly and professionally throughout the events. Our clients were extremely happy with the end result, and so were we.

We have been working with Katrina for several years and she has always been incredibly professional, helpful and friendly to deal with. The nature of our work means she could be chasing down a bus one day, to shooting an event another whilst always accommodating our needs and producing exceptional quality. I would highly recommend Katrina for any commercial or event photography – she goes out of her way to ensure she gets exactly what you need and on time!

We needed a photographer for our ‘Women in Business’ event and Catchlights was recommended. This was a new initiative to have a professional photographer at these events. Catchlights provided promptly great images. It’s a fantastic service. Katrina made it all happen and is very reliable.
