Hi! My name is Katt Gao and I'm a Travel + Lifestyle photographer and content creator from Sydney, Australia.
My journey with photography began back in 2008 when I picked up my very first camera (a Canon 400D) while on a family trip to Hong Kong. It was the first time I owned anything other than a pocket camera and back in the days when smartphones were only just beginning to come into existence.
What drew me to photography was my desire to capture moments and to remember them. To capture, to share and to tell a story.
It wasn't until 2013 that I upgraded to my current camera (a Canon 5D Mark III) and started to consider pursuing photography more seriously. I have worked in wedding, event, commercial photography and finally decided that travel photography was the perfect fit for my personality and lifestyle.
I now have the privilege to partner with brands I love and trust like Canon Australia (the ones who started this crazy journey) and create content for some awesome companies including Ford, BMW, The Ritz Carlton, WANDRD, G.H. Mumm, The 5th and more.
When you have a passion, don't be afraid to invest your time and energy into it because you will never regret doing what you love.
