Kath began working in the Film Industry in Melbourne after finishing her degree at what was then known as the Swinburne Film and TV School.
Her first gig out of film school was operating the camera on a collection of short films made by women at The Women’s Film Unit.
Soon after, Kath undertook an attachment with filmmaker and DOP David Parker.
She went on to work with Parker over many years on projects like The Big Steal, Rikky and Pete, Child Star - The Shirley Temple Story and most recently on Kath and Kimderella.
Over the years, while raising her kids, Kath has undertaken second unit work for DP’s including Brendan Lavelle ACS, Jaems Grant ACS and Craig Barden ACS.
Kath worked with Craig as his B camera operator and second unit DP for the first three seasons of Wentworth until 2015 when she took over as DP.
In early 2017 Kath shot the 13 part series Mustangs FC for Matchbox Pictures and the ABC.
She is currently shooting Series 6 of Wentworth for Foxtel and FremantleMedia.
Kath believes persistence is key when you are starting out. Keep at it, be brave, be bold and be imaginative.
