Katja Anton is a former award-winning BBC wildlife filmmaker, stylist and a trained and experienced photographer. She is Noosa based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia, and due to her broad media & visually creative background, she can offer a variety of professional photographic services presenting clients with a convenient 1-stop styling/shoot shop from creative portfolios for commercial purposes, to beautiful portraiture using on location and studio lighting techniques to produce inspiring and original images of the highest quality. At Katja Anton Photography the photographic style is relaxed, fresh and flexible, and she is happy to custom tailor packages specially designed for the clients’ individual needs. She loves to explore and has traveled extensively and loves to capture both the big and the minute details to tell a story. “Through my film and photographic travels, I seek to document my own personal experiences, to capture the beautiful and sometimes less beautiful which has broadened my view of the world, and to share with others the amazing diversity out there – there is beauty in everything, but not everyone sees it.”
I love the variety and all the different experiences and encounters it leads me to on the way. When I travel I feel at home scouring the world’s markets, the smell of spices, old books and watching the sun set on a red sandstone building. Beauty for me can be a dramatic mountain top view or a dewdrop glistening on a leaf at dawn. In the same way a wedding offers large and small slices of life, a baby shoot or a couple such intimacy and sometimes even commercial photography allows you to see sometimes the most mundane things in a whole new way.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I pride myself in being a good listener and communicator (I am multi-lingual and of a mixed cultural background), so I am able to have a good rapport with my clients, provide a complete personal service for them in order to find and visualise their story to be told and finally, I strive to deliver and hopefully exceed expectations with no pretentiousness or price tag to match.
