Occasionally I'm funny.

thecupcakedebby asked: hey Catherine. I wanna read NKD magazine so badly but I'm from Germany and I don't know what I'm supposed to do.

All of our issues are available for free online: nkdmag.com

I’ve spent a little too much time missing you and not enough time kissing you.

Anonymous asked: Are 50mm lenses typically non zoom lenses, or do some exist that can zoom in?

50mm is the focal length. They do not zoom.

Anonymous asked: Why is the magazine called NKD or Naked? I'm curious!

The whole idea was to do more raw, informative interviews than artists are used to. Get them “naked” in a sense. 

Anonymous asked: for how long have you been photographing?

Six years!

Anonymous asked: What type of camera would say is a good one for a starter?

I never know how to answer this one… I recommend going to a camera store and testing a few out until you find one you’re comfortable with.

Anonymous asked: what do u like to photograph the most?

Musicians and good looking people.

Anonymous asked: what would you say are the pros and cons to Nikon vs Canon cameras?

Never shot Nikon so I can’t really answer this.

Anonymous asked: hello, hope all is well. first of just wanna start by saying that i love the magazine and your photography! secondly i wanted to ask two things; first one is, do you use any special lens depending on what you photograph? such as concerts or portraits, etc. and secondly, do you take "requests" per say, of some people who the audience would like to see in the magazine? thank you for your time!

Hi! 

1) I use different lenses for different situations. For club shows, usually my 50mm f1.8 to adapt to the low light. Arena shows, usually something a little longer. Portraits it depends if I’m shooting with natural light or strobes.

2) We do take all requests for NKD into consideration :)

Anonymous asked: Hi Catherine, how are you doing? Do you have any tips for people who are starting to photograph? Thank you, keep up the good work!

I’m great, thanks for asking!

And the best advice I can give is to just shoot a lot. Take too many pictures. The more you shoot, the easier it will be to figure out what and how you like to shoot.
