Kate Verna has had a lifelong love of photography and started taking photos in grade school.

Her work covers a wide range of subject matter, although she particularly enjoys taking pictures of animals, interesting textures, and places that are seemingly lost in time such as long forgotten ruins on Route 66.

Kate's other passion is travel. She has been to every continent except Antarctica. Kate always has her camera with her on trips and has an extensive body of work from her travels.

Black and white and sepia photography also interest Kate. She experiments with making some street photography and landscape photos black and white so they look like they could have been taken in a different time period.
