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!

Life's too short. You've gotta laugh and have fun!

We've been doing a lot of thinking lately. A LOT. About where we are, where we want to go and where we see our lives from 1, 3, 5, even 10 years down the road....I can assure you that my husband and I are dreaming BIG and are excited about 2009!
(no, no babies just yet).

In the coming days, you will see a brand-spaking new website, a new blog and a whole new identity for Catalina Photography.
I can't wait to share it with you!

I leave you with 3 photos taken by my brother-in law, Herman, on a recent visit to see him and his girlfriend Mariana in Washington, DC.

I think I take life too seriously sometimes, so the reason I love these images is because my husband and I are laughing and being completely goofy.

Life's too short. You've gotta laugh and have fun!

My 100th Post! - Bakalao Stars Cover Shot

How very appropriate, and what a fun 100th post on my blog!!!!

I recently had another cover shot for Creative Loafing, this time featuring the ska/funskters from Bakalao Stars. They sing in both Spanish and English, and were part of CarlotanRock 2008, but no matter what language they sing in, they are an AWESOME, band - true entertainers who have a blast on stage, wear different costumes and give off a very catchy energy that keeps the audience dancing and laughing the entire time they're on stage.

Here are my favorite shots from my session with Bakalo Stars.
The image chosen for Creative Loafing's cover is the last one on this post.




THE Creative Loafing cover shot - ta da!!!!!

Jason - Portrait

Several posts ago I published 2 photos of some cool amps owned by custom music and sound designer extraordinaire Jason Hausman. Now, it's time to post my most favorite Jason portrait. For his coming-soon new website (current site - www.hotsake.tv), Jason wanted to go for a dark, mysterious look. We are both pretty stoked with the results.

I thank once more Zack Arias and his one-light DVD, which helped me in achieving this look.
Zack, I hope you are seeing this! Thank you!
Welcome back from Dubai!
Can't wait to see more of your photos and hear about the trip!
