PHOTOGRAPHERS

Pikme works with a select group of photographers to produce inspiring, high-quality images. 

Since being a given a Kodak 110 cartridge film camera as a seven year old, Kate Atkinson has been taking photos.

No longer wielding her pink 80s camera, Kate delves into both digital and film, with a love for medium format and spending hours in her home darkroom.

Before the world changed, Kate traveled extensively for both leisure and work in the music industry, with a niche for touring in remote Australia. This is reflected in her photos, through stark, shadowless landscapes and the colourful characters she has met on the road.

An award winning photographer, Kate was the recipient of People’s Choice award in the 2019 National Photographic Portrait Prize and more recently won the 2021 Stanthorpe Photography Awards.

Kate is available for photoshoots both in the studio and on location.
