Katey Jane Andrews
An adventurous photographer from East England
Hi, I’m Kate, an adventurous photographer from the Fenland countryside in Cambridgeshire, England.
Truth be told, Fenland countryside is one of the worst places to be a photographer. No trees. No hills. Just endless flat fields. But it taught me to see beyond the objects and look for the mood of nature.
To capture special moments and places, I often go out before sunrise. A few breaths of fresh air, and I feel like the weight of the everyday problems is lifted.
I got my first camera, a Kodak compact, when I was 6 years old. But it wasn't until later in life that I became fascinated with photography after taking a photo of a lightning during a stormy night.
Photography is my antidepressant and a way to take a step back from a rat race of life.
My adventures also help me take care of my auntie who’s struggling with dementia keeping her body active and mind busy.
A self-taught photographer who doesn’t believe in Photoshop
I’m a self-taught photographer who prefers to shoot her photos using the manual mode of the camera. I love playing with the white balance on my favorite Canon 7D mk2.
I love farming and could watch the machines working in the fields for hours. Take this caterpillar crawler, for example. An ordinary machine, you may think. But with the colorful trees in the background and dust clouds from under the wheals, it becomes a manifestation of power and perseverance.
Random fun facts about me
Things I like: Motorbikes (I’m a big fan of Cal Crutchlow and Marc Marquez, and a proud biker for 18 years), Bob Marley, UB 40, Scooter, OMD, Pet Shop Boys.
Things I don’t like: Spiders, mindless cutting of trees and photographing people (Not my thing. I’d rather run a mile!)
Things I care about: Lack of places where you can have a long walk (so many places are private land these days), that we mindlessly destroy our nature and are forgetting our past and history.
