Interview with Katie Walker, winning photographer

By The Say-er of It

Winners of the 2014 Digital Photography Contest were invited to talk to the public about their work at Solano County Library’s 100 year anniversary celebration. We had a chance to interview these talented photographers at the event. Katie Walker is one of the two photographers who had two winning photos this year.

Looking Up, by Katie Walker

What inspired you to take this photo? 
I was visiting UC Santa Cruz and wanted to capture the scenery and the feeling of having the trees surround you.|


Petals of White, by Katie Walker


What inspired you to take this photo? 
It was springtime, and the flowers were blooming in a local rural area. It was the perfect position to cover the entire photo.

Why do you enjoy photography? 
When you take a picture of things you enjoy in life you get to go back and relive that time in your life. I have been doing this as a hobby for the past two years. I am planning on taking a photo class this summer but haven’t taken any classes yet. 

What does the library mean to you? 
The library is great because we have access to good books. I enjoy reading and getting to know more about the things that I’m interested in.

Would you enter this contest again? Yes.


Would you encourage your friends to enter? Yes 

What would you say to them?

This is a great opportunity to get exposure for your work. Having your photos displayed in the library is a great and wonderful way to get library exposure.
