Biography

Catherine Hall has been capturing the world with her camera since she was sixteen. She thoroughly enjoys sharing experiences and creating imagery with all people, from a bride in the Hamptons to Tibetan monks in the Indian Himalayas.

Catherine’s official study of photography began at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo where she graduated summa cum laude and first in her class. She furthered her studies in Photography and Art History at Oxford University in England and as an attendee to the Eddie Adams Workshop. Her work has earned many scholarships, grants, and sponsorships from organizations including Epson, Kodak, Tamrac, B & W, National Geographic Traveler, WPPI, and Julia Dean & Associates.
Catherine has continued her education by working with the industry's top photographers, such as Afghan Girl photographer Steve McCurry, and working with prestigious agencies such as Getty Images as a photographer, photo editor, and grants consultant. She teaches at top international workshops and serves as a master class instructor at photography tradeshows.

Catherine’s award winning images have been exhibited in galleries in Paris, New York City and the San Francisco Bay area. They have appeared in Times Square on the NASDAQ and Reuters screens, in PDN, National Geographic Traveler, Rangefinder, The Sydney Morning Herald, American Photo, The Tribune, The New York Times, Camera Arts, and in promotional materials for fifteen international non-profit organizations.

Catherine has been trusted to capture weddings and premiere events by NYC's top events planners. Her clients include Reuters, NASDAQ, News Corp, FOX, MySpace, Expedia, Evite, Ticketmaster, and Goldman Sachs. She divides her time between New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Interests

When I am not behind a camera I like to: Ski, swim, hike (especially in the Sierra Nevadas), walk around New York City, peruse photography publications in bookstores (Strand in NYC is my fave), dance, sing, yoga, read a good book, watch movies (especially ones that make me laugh), grab a green tea in the day or a martini in the night with friends, eat at New Age Asian Cuisine restaurants in SF or NYC, explore new places.
