Hi everyone. I'm Kat, from east Tennessee in the US.
I'm about halfway through a photography degree right now, and starting out into the professional portrait world. Been a certified diver for almost 5 years, but haven't been in the water for half of that. Hoping that will change once I'm done with school since minimum wage that I'm earning now just doesn't cover diving *and* photo equipment!
Once finances settle down, I'm hoping to get a housing for either my Nikon D40 or D7000 and be able to combine two of my loves. My favorite type of photography is nature and travel (hard to make money though) and I can see enjoying UW photos just as much as the photos I take on my weekly hikes in the Smoky Mountains.
I recently applied for a job as a diver/education presenter at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. Cross your fingers for me!
