I was extremely fortunate to be included in Ron Dawson’s F-Stop Beyond Series. He has interviewed many of our industries top professionals such as the Woods, Michelle Celentano, Jim Garner, Joe Photo, etc. He is an incredible artist himself and did and amazing job. Below is his interview description and link to the show.
What do a massage therapist and a wedding and portrait photographer have in common? Well, you gotta listen if you want to find out. Perhaps it was Catherine Hall‘s experience as the former that contributed to her being such a terrific photographer. Or, maybe it was the nationally acclaimed skiing she used to do that gave her the competitive edge to rise above the rest. Or, perhaps, despite the fact that she was a middle child, instead of embracing a “Jan Brady” (“Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!”) attitude, Catherine always saw herself AS Marcia. Whatever the secret, Catherine’s experience as an editorial, portrait, and wedding photographer have made her creme of the crop in the industry (she was one of only a few women selected as “Young Guns” earlier this year at WPPI). This is one of those episodes that will make you laugh as well as give you inspiration. We cover a whole host of topics: childhood; massage therapy; skiing; west coast vs. east coast (she’s bi-coastal, “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”); and, at the end, she gives us her take on two of the most oft-asked questions she gets as a speaker and instructor: how do you get sponsors and how do you get to charge high fees? We cover such a variety of topics, I’ve crowned Catherine “The Tangent Queen.”
Please enjoy the SHOW.

Next in our series on the Digital Railroad sponsored Lightroom Adventure Tasmania photographers is Catherine Hall. Catherine has been capturing expressive images of people through her camera since an early age. She has been published in The New York Times, Elegant Bride, Grace Ormonde, The Knot, PDN, National Geographic Traveler, Rangefinder, The Tribune, The Sydney Morning Herald, and American Photo. Her clients include John Deere, News Corp, Reuters, and Goldman Sachs.
Catherine’s photos from the Tasmania trip have just been published in Marketplace. The two images posted here show just some of the great range in her work. The examples combine her passion for people and portaiture with a strong sense of place.
This month we were selected by Wedding and Portait Photographer International as their studio of the month which is quite an honor! Specifically they looked at our innovative approach to story telling via multimedia image narrations.
Below is the beginning and link to full article:
“Digital technology is changing the way we preserve our memories. Today’s photographers can tell stories and illustrate events in more depth than ever before,” explains photographer Catherine Hall. Hall–a pioneering artist who is developing what she calls “Image Narration”–is owner and founder of an eponymous studio. Catherine Hall Studios specializes in both editorial and wedding photography. Her wedding coverage allows her to serve the upper echelons of bicoastal society, predominantly the New York metropolitan area and San Francisco Bay Area residents.
“At the moment, I position Image Narration as a special added product that complements my in-place photography and album offering,” says Hall. With her new way of storytelling, Hall has quickly grown a following among a white glove clientele.
One of my favorite couples, Sonali Das and Derek Theisen, were featured in the Weddings/Celebrations section of the New York Times. They were so much fun to work with and so SEXY in front of the camera. I will post some of their images shortly.
