About Me

My photo
Hola! Hello! Bonjour! Szerbus! Ciao! My name is Catalina and I'm a freelance photogrher based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hola! Me llamo Catalina y son una fotografa en Charlotte, Carolina del Norte. Although a straight-A student in high school, I loathed and somehow managed to skip Physics in order to print in the dark room. Now, with the passing of each day, I am more and more passionate about photography and the moments I can capture through my lens - abstract or otherwise. Enjoy!

Creative Loafing

I should mention that there might be a fair amount of food images throughout this blog, as I am the official food photographer for Creative Loafing here in Charlotte.
I've been at it for 3 years now, and enjoy visiting a new restaurant every week and finding a way to photograph the food to give it an interesting, different look.
Here are two fun ones:


(l-r) Mom, me, Meme, Juan

Meme is my fabulous grandmother, who at 86 years old, is truly truly amazing.
She speaks 7 languages (Hungarian, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, German and studied a little bit of Japanese in Caracas, Venezuela). She stil swims every day, walks every day and tutors several students in various languages.
On our 2-year wedding anniversary (December 23rd), Meme made Juan and I a delicious meal, which included my favorite Hungarian cucumber salad seen here.


aaahhh, yes.....this is another of my favorite photos....can you guess what it is?

This is one of my favorite images of all time. My parents and I went to Italy to visit my dad's family. This image is at Lago di Garda and at the time, I was still shooting film with my fabulous college graduation gift from dad, a Minolta X-700. So mom and I were walking around the lake when I accidentally clicked the shutter and happened to catch part of my mom and her fabulous red purse.

Take 2

This is my second attempt at keeping a blog, and one of my goals this year is to actually stick to it. Be it daily, weekly or even monthly, this will be my outlet for images that are not currently on my website, www.catalinaphotography.com.
So this blog is for mine and your enjoyment. I welcome your comments!
