Kate Hathaway is a freelance photographer from the North East of England specialising in events and live music photography, and is the Digital Content Coordinator at Leeds Beckett Student’s Union.
As an avid music fan, Kate has shot all kinds of live music events, from small indie gigs to multi-thousand capacity venue concerts and festivals. Her work has been published both online and in print for many music publications. Over her time studying at Leeds Beckett, she has had the opportunity to expand this experience; such as attending the 2017 Radio Academy Awards as a front of house and backstage photographer, and has joined the Deer Shed Festival media team as a returning team member for each year's event, from 2018 - present.
In addition to photographing live music, Kate also enjoys writing about important, often branded ‘taboo’ subjects, and has a passion for graphic design, web design, and illustration. These combined passions have helped inspire her final year project.
Let’s Talk About Sex Ed takes the form of an illustrated website, all about the importance of sex and relationships education in modern-day school curriculums. The website is a fun yet informative hub of resources ranging from quizzes, interviews and illustrations to help inform people why this curriculum is a vital source of education, helping to convey what today’s young people want to learn about and why.
