Biography*** Major portfolio makeover underway... feeling very minimalist these days... stay tuned...***
hello! i'm katieDAMRONpotter, and i am a full-time professional traveling model & photographer. i'm also an experienced musician, songwriter, video editor, videographer and writer.
my passion on the model's side of the lens is in the fine art, artistic and editorial/fashion nude genres - at 5'3", 93 lbs., fair skin, red hair, blue eyes, and plenty of ink, i tend to stick out in a crowd. my posing is based on a lifetime of ballet and modern dance training, i'm kinetic and fluid, i like to emphasize the "moments between the moments" that people usually miss. i love to climb things, defy gravity, jump and utilize my insanity - hey, whatever works, right?
as a photographer, i'm just as adventurous and unique, with a completely different approach to my madness. i decided to start shooting when i realized that it would be almost physically impossible to create genuine art without knowing exactly what was happening on both sides of the lens. my first dSLR - a Canon 50D - was given to me in december of 2008 and i was OBSESSED - i had found yet another thrilling and elaborately honest way to express myself. after having worked with so many photographers, i taught myself the majority of everything i know by listening to the photographers that were shooting me (they tend to talk to themselves - i definitely do), throwing myself into learning and shooting during every minute not spent on the other side of the camera, and working with as many people and whatever styles crossed my path. after a few years of refinement, i finally felt like i developed my "look" - and not unlike my modeling - i tend to gravitate towards fine art, artistic/abstract and editorial photography - often involving nudes. i am not, however, limited to artistic photography - i am also quite an accomplished commercial photographer and can provide any services desired from family portraits to weddings to advertising to photojournalism.
photography and modeling - in essence - were the answers to my lifelong question as to how i was going to utilize the lifetime i had spent training in various forms of fine and performing arts - such as dance, acting, choreography, videography and writing.
whoever i work with can definitely benefit from expertise (lol) and experience on both sides of the lens. many of the models that i coached at the beginning of their careers went on to model professionally. newer photographers can take advantage of my ability to express how to communicate and work with their models more efficiently, i can guide the photographers right to the shot they're looking for, plus i'm totally a technical junkie and i seem to be able to answer random miscellaneous questions that every photographer has but are afraid to ask. more experienced photographers enjoy my endless plethora and diversity of poses and body shapes, and the speed and ease at which i can work, plus exchanging techniques and ideas is always enriching on both sides.
within the industry, i'm really well-rounded. my mind is filled with little bubbles of knowledge that float around in subjective oceans of the artistic fathoms - i'll be your navigator, your teacher, your inspiration and your solution - art that twists and turns through everything the eyes can and cannot see.
