Kat's Photography, photos by Kat Stiennon. Kat is a Madison area local photographer, who has a Bachelor's Degree in Art and Classical Humanities from UW-Madison. She specializes as a freelance dance, theatre, and beauty photographer. Kat also has experience in photographing sports, yoga, nature, engagements, senior portraits, and events.
It was love at first sight when she got her 1980s Fisher Price camera. Since then, photography has been a big passion in Kat's life. Her joy of capturing movement, comes from her former years as a dance student. Kat's knowledge of aesthetics, and her faster than average reaction time, produces beautiful photographs. Stiennon photographs with her heart.
Kat Stiennon's photos have been featured by Broadway World, Brown Girls Do Ballet, New York City Ballet, Shutterbug Magazine, Monochrome Awards, International Photography Awards, NHL draft, and used by Floating Point FX in the movie "Patriot's Day."
