Kat Kaplan Photo and Cinema

Kat Kaplan Photo and Cinema Still photography and cinematography services aimed toward musicians. Headshots, stage shots, music videos, live shows, anything you can create!

I began shooting still photography when I was 13 and my father gave me his 1970's Nikon FM. Beginning with only a 50mm prime lens taught me the art of capturing the candid portrait. In High School I was always shooting film, and contributed tons of photographs to the school newspaper and yearbooks and began to learn black and white darkroom printing. In college I took classes in slide photography, working with numerous lenses and bodies and increasing my lens collection tremendously. I also learned black and white negative developing and increased my knowledge of film exposure under the teaching of Bob Ware. Recently I have finally moved into the digital age adding my first FX format body to my collection. It has started me on a road of learning and loving to shoot HD video and I have added new tools to stabilize my images and make my movies more professional. As a professional Sound Engineer I work with bands on a daily basis and would like to offer musicians of all types my services. I can shoot natural light and strobe headshots, or band images, as well as film your next video or live show. Please think of me if you need high quality optics! As a professional sound engineer I can also offer full sound services, including off camera full band micing, mixing, and anything to help you realize your creative dream.

When I go out to shoot a band or review their photos it is never enough to shoot a "good" picture. If the shots aren't iconic to me I feel like they haven't met my standard. Every band wants to be viewed by the audience in that way. It is the photographer's job to capture that iconic moment and freeze it forever in time.
