Kate Cooper FMPA FBIPP QEP
Kate creates award winning commercial studio images for a wide range of bailey-cooper clients.
As a previous winner of the UK MPA/BIPP Advertising Photographer of the Year, Kate's work has been recognised at the highest level and is regularly used by design agencies and magazines throughout the world.
In 2007 she won the highest accolade possible from the BIPP/MPA: Best Fellowship Panel of the Year.
For obvious reasons, Kate brings a feminine touch to the Bailey Cooper mix: Her flair for fashion and design really comes into it's own when working alongside Paul.
Despite admitting to being a 'technophobe', Kate has mastered the very latest in digital camera technology, and now pushes the boundaries to the absolute limits to create her winning images.
As our 'cherubs' photographer, Kate now spends a lot of her time making gurgling and coo'ing noises in the studio whilst photographing babies!
So if you're looking for a female photographer in York for your next assignment... give Kate a call.
