Meet Katie Hubert of Katie Hubert Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Katie Hubert.  

Hi Katie, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. My creativity really sparked from water coloring with my dad, visiting art museums with my grandparents, and spending a ton of time shooting on disposable film cameras since the age of 4! My friends and family over the years allowed me the space to be creative and explore many different avenues of being an artist. I picked up film photography in high school when I begged my parents for a digital camera, and they told me to learn how to shoot film before I got access to digital cameras. I completely fell in love with film and ended up studying it for my 4 years at the University of Southern California, along with design and a minor in marketing. I now shoot photography on the weekends for outdoor/lifestyle clients and work full-time remotely on the weekdays as a Brand Designer in tech. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I am super appreciative of the life I have lived, but my biggest challenge was juggling sports and creative! I was a recruited D1 athlete in college and a full-time athlete my whole life growing up. It was really difficult to find the time and energy to perform in my sport and be creative. Being an artist, your art is like giving the universe a part of you. It takes a certain amount of energy to create, and after 3 practices in a single day, it was challenging to do my best art. The best way to handle my athletic journey and my creative one is really to allow space for rest and not forcing one or the other on days when that energy isn’t particularly flowing. Just be and appreciate my athletic side and my creative side when the universe is giving me those moments. 

As you know, we’re big fans of Katie Hubert Photography. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about the brand?
I have been shooting professionally for over 10 years. I specialize in wedding photography as well as outdoor and lifestyle – think photography you might see in an REI. I thrive under the excitement that is your wedding day and love to include brands along my everyday lifestyle of hiking, backpacking, road tripping, and climbing. Living in Colorado allows me to get the best of both worlds, and I absolutely love to travel worldwide when a client requests a certain location. 

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
My favorite advice for photographers starting out is to consume and collect as much art of successful artists as you can. Training your eye to recognize “good art” and what that takes will only help you in the field creating! Art doesn’t have to be 100% your train of thought. It is totally ok to take inspiration from those you look up to. Everyone is different, and over time your own style will come out! Also, to just have fun with creating – you won’t get everything right the first time, and that’s the best part of the journey!
