About Katrina Lau Hammond

I've explored numerous careers in my life, but they have always revolved around food. Whether you call 'food' my passion, my culture, or my career, I've been raised to value its importance and contribution to the world.

After my son was born, I reflected on what was important to me. Creative expression, doing something I enjoy, appreciating natural beauty, and sharing joy and inspiration with others, were all things that came to mind. So I decided to refocus my attention on food photography.

Prior to working behind the lens, I worked as: a qualified pastry chef in Paris and London; an organic baker in a small Dutch town; a food technologist in public and private sectors in Australia, working in food safety, product development and quality assurance; and in marketing as a product manager of domestic kitchen appliances.

I would be thrilled to work with you to capture some food images, whether it be for your café or restaurant menu, your website, your cookbook, your newsletter or flyer, or any other food related project.

So if you’re working on something great and need someone to shoot it, please feel free to get in touch. I look forward to collaborating with you.

- Katrina

Many thanks for the wonderful job you did - they were a great success - everyone loved the mini tarts. Richard did get a surprise - and the night went off well.

Tell Katrina the tarts were fantastic. I got only one of the mini fruit ones. They just disappeared. Emilia had four so they must have been good. Many thanks to Kat for her great effort.
