Kate Holstein is an American photographer who lives between Aspen, Colorado and the Caribbean island of Saint Barthélemy. She was trained at The Parsons School of Design in New York City. However, it was the experience following school, while living in Paris then traveling the world, where she truly discovered her eye.
Kate photographs a broad range of subjects, from celebrity portraiture to editorial work for clients such as Condé Nast Traveler and Cereal Magazine. She is best known for her unique take on landscapes and cityscapes, which through her lens appear etherial, luminous, and evoke a deep sense of place. Her upbringing in the mountains of Colorado, along with a brief career as a professional skier, have greatly influenced her landscape work. It was this time spent in nature as a child and young adult that gave her the unique gift to capture the very essence of it.
Shooting exclusively with natural light, she finds beauty in the subtle, which brings an organic and captivating quality to her work. Her landscapes have become collected photography, and are currently sold through Galleries in NYC, St. Barth, The Hamptons, Aspen, Charleston and California.
Recently she contributed to Assouline’s ASPEN STYLE book. Her work is also seen in THESE ISLANDS published by Cereal Magazine along with their celebrated city guides for Paris and New York. She is a regular contributor to Condé Nast Traveler and Cereal Magazine. Kate has photographed Sir Richard Branson, Deepak Chopra, and musician Michael Franti. Kate’s international clients include Tory Burch, Coach, J.Crew, Patagonia, Eberjey, ASOS, Assouline, British Airways, Elle Decore and Harper’s Bazaar.
