Cathy Anderson is a second-generation photographer with more than ten years of experience, based in Morganton, NC. She has earned her Certified Professional Photographer, Master Photographer, and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America. Her photographic specialties include adventure, landscape, and “sportrait” (sports portraits with off-camera flash) photography, and she seeks to push the envelope with dynamic off-camera lighting and creativity. She enjoys photographing extreme sports and athletes in hard-to-reach locations, while utilizing off-camera lighting to set her sportrait work apart in a largely natural light world. In her portraits, she focuses on the psychological connection between the photographer and client, working to reveal a client’s true personality in her portraiture. Her award-winning photography has been published and featured in national news outlets and magazines, art galleries, and the PPA Loan Collection. She has a great passion for teaching and preserving the roots of traditional photographic artistry and has traveled around the country teaching photography at events such as Imaging USA, Shutterfest, and statewide PPA affiliate conventions.
