about Katie Potter
Hello, i'm Katie - I'm a photographer in Fallston, MD. I shoot pretty much everything - I think I enjoy shooting fine art nudes and anything with a sci-fi theme to it (not necessarily simultaneously) are probably my favorite genres, but really I'm not remotely picky. I have been shooting since about 2009, seriously since about 2011, I shot the hell out of 2012 when I bought my house with my studio, then in 2013 I was pregnant with my first child and kind of dropped off the radar for a bit. In mid-2014 I met a lot of really awesome supportive people who helped me get out of my post-partum sump and start shooting again, so those 2 years were pretty spectacular, I gotta say. In 2016 I was pregnant with my son, so I kind of fell off of the face of the earth again. Some people are great when they're pregnant, I was not - my brain stopped working, it was like I was cut off from myself. But, alas, here we are - the boy is almost 2 and a half - and I am back in the swing of all things weird, wonderful and beautiful.
Let's see... alright, I was a nude model between the years of 2007 and 2012, so I have a really interesting and unique perspective when I shoot. As a model, I worked with hundreds of photographers in hundreds of styles with hundreds of ways of dealing with models - I've experienced what works, what doesn't works, I've learned all of the dos and do nots, I've made stupid mistakes, I've had a lot of success - so, models, please trust me when I say, "I know where you're coming from."
I have a tendency to dip into random themes for bits of time without being aware of it, so I feel like my work tends to change with my life. I've definitely managed to acquire my own style over the years but it definitely stays dynamic... and random... which totally works for me.
So yeah... that's me, in a very constricted nutshell... or some interpretation of me. These bio things kind of freak me out, so I'm going to say please don't judge me based on the apparent insanity that laces itself through my writing... judge me based on the apparent insanity that injects itself into my work - because yeah, I'm completely insane - or so I've been told more times than I can possibly attempt to recall - but once again, it just works for me.
