Je Suis Kathryn Wirsing

Occupation: Photographer

Where were you born?
I was born on Long Island, New York

Where do you live now?
I live in Queens, New York with my fiancé and calico cat Chloe

In one sentence what is unique about your work?
I believe the genuine connections I make with my subjects on set shows through beautifully in the final images.

Why do you do what you do?
For better or worse, I define who I am as a person through being a photographer.It's not just what I do, it's who I am.I've always needed to create, even at a young age.I can't imagine myself in any other profession. 

What inspires you?
People and their lives inspire me.The way the light falls on things and places everyday inspires me.New York City and it's endless possibilities inspires me.

Describe your personal style.
90's grunge throwback?I dress for comfort because I find myself in constant awkward positioning while shooting.I'm usually always in jeans, chelsea boots and dark tops.

Your ultimate must-have.
Trust and belief in the direction of your passion.Oh and a super comfortable bed to come home to at night after a long day of shooting. 

What superpower would you have and why?
The power to teleport.I hate waiting and have a slight fear of flying in airplanes so being able to instantly be somewhere overseas would be a dream.

What is next for you?
Working with some incredible ballet dancers on a few personal projects and some social media collaborations with a few designers in NYC.I love shooting fashion, beauty, dance and environmental portraits.Looking forward to collaborating on projects with creative people
