Katie Newburn was born and raised in the Napa Valley, the perfect environment to nurture her early passion for food and community. At sixteen she began her first job in the local restaurant scene, and increasingly engaged with chefs, local sustainable farms, and wine makers. 

As her passion increased, so too did her desire to use photography as a medium to capture the love shared at the dining table, to give back and support the local and sustainable food movement, and to offer her own unique perspective.

Establishing a studio in Emeryville's warehouse district in 2010, Katie has been working with clients in the Bay Area and beyond to craft imagery that conveys the heart of each dish, its ingredients and makers, and the celebration of food embraced here. 

Katie invites the viewer to sit next to her and taste what she tastes; to experience what she experiences. Her photographs reflect the stories of her subjects, and her desire to celebrate each individual person, intimate moment and the emotions they give.

Visual Supply Co produced and featured a video on Katie. Watch it  here.
