Katrin Press is an Estonian photographer specializing in food and lifestyle subjects.
She received a BA in media and communication from Tartu University, Estonia in 2006 and worked as a reporter, editor and most recently a food writer for several Estonian publications. As a food writer she started taking photos on the side, got completely immersed in photography and has been a professional photographer since 2011.
"I've been very visual and interested in art since childhood. Not going to art school was a rational career choice that I don't regret, but I always felt that I lack words to convey a meaning. Photography helps me to communicate and to connect with the world," she explains.
She most often styles her own food shoots and sometimes also develops recipes. She's a co-author and a photographer for quite a few cookbooks.
