Katie Williams from Exmouth describes her love for photography and how she supports charities close to her heart with her camera skills.
“Ever since secondary school, I’ve been interested in photography. It started out very much as a hobby but I went on to study A-Level at Exmouth Community College and then completed a Diploma Level course at Exeter College receiving a distinction.
“Throughout my studies, I photographed a range of different subjects and during this process I found my love for landscape and macro photography. I often visit Bicton Park, Woodbury Common and Budleigh Salterton, capturing the scenery and nature on show, which constantly changes. It’s amazing what you can find inside a flower!
“In 2017, I decided to make a calendar for ELF (Exeter Leukaemia Fund), a charity very important to me. It was a huge success, raising a large amount of money for a very good cause. This year, I’ve decided to make another calendar for ‘The Warrior Programme’, a charity which helps veterans recover with their emotions after being in military service, another charity very close to my heart.
“Even though my photography started out as a hobby, my aim is to become a more experienced, well-published photographer.
