Katherine Phipps (b. 1993) is an artist, photographer, yoga teacher, and content creator based in New York, New York.  A passionate, sensitive storyteller,  her work has a strong narrative style focused on moments that are both ethereal and ephemeral. She sees and documents beauty everywhere: the natural world; an expression of love between a couple on their wedding day; the unique, intimate interactions of a family; beautiful light and passing moments witnessed in the day to day. She has learned in her decade long practice of photography to be preset, yet not too attached to any expectations for the picture. It will be what it will be, and it usually turns out to be beautiful. She graduated from Pratt Institute in 2015 with a BFA in Photography after attending the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute. Please get in touch for rates on portraiture, wedding photography, and other photography services.

Katherine is also an advocate for analog technologies in the Photography Industry, having joined the Lomographic Society International in 2015 and working as their US-based Marketing and PR Manager until 2017. Shortly after, she connected with the PONF Multi-back Open Camera Project and was appointed Marketing and Communications Director. Katherine also works with freelance clients on establishing and improving their creative brand strategy.

Katherine fell in love with Yoga when she took her first class at her hometown gym in 2013. She believes that the ancient art of Yoga is a path to transformation, peace and freedom for all. Fusing the asana (yoga poses) practice with more subtle aspects of yoga, such as mantra (sacred sound) , dharma (yoga philosophy), pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation, Katherine encourages students to develop a mindful practice both on and off the mat in order to promote the yogic lifestyle as a lifestyle for total wellbeing. After diving into her first academic studies of yoga, meditation, and related spiritual philosophy at Pratt Institute, two years later Katherine completed the 200 HR Yoga Alliance Teacher Training at All Yoga NYC with Christina Rufin and Casey Beauchamp. She then decided to make more space in her life to pursue teaching yoga and her personal creative happiness. She is humbly grateful for each opportunity to lift others up and help them shine more brightly. An eternal student, Katherine aspires to share authentically as her practice transforms her experience in order to better serve the world. She teaches yoga classes in studio, is available for private and corporate classes, and provides online yoga/fitness/wellness coaching.
