A Flash of Inspiration: Katya Horner

February 26, 2011

I started this series last year, in which I planned to
highlight some of my favorite inspirational photographers
I’ve come across. Various things (i.e, laziness!) got in my way,
but I’m hoping to update a lot more often this year!


another day, another fairytale

I can’t remember when I started following Katya Horner (aka slightclutter) on Flickr, but I know that I’ve been consistently impressed ever since.  Katya’s work always succeeds in showing me what a beautiful, magical world we live in.  Seeing her nature photography inspires me to get out there and shoot some more, in hopes that I can get to even half her level.  Being the exact opposite of a morning person, her fog series has even gotten me out of bed super early in the morning to try to capture my own magic.

I had the most difficult time picking some of my favorites. Even among these, I would call them my ‘top’ favorites. If I could, I would just show all her photography here because every image has its own story and something to love.

Katya says:
“Just a girl who loves her camera and is lucky enough to make a living using it.
Other than that…
I love the Foo Fighters, Dr. Pepper, ephemera and fog. Okay, okay — you can also throw in my family, my friends and my super entertaining cat Claudius.
Oh, and trees. I love trees.

    Oh my goodness, Preeti, thank you so much! I love that you added Claudius to the mix! He’s always in the mix here, so it’s only fitting. 😉

    No, seriously, I truly appreciate it. And coming from a kindred spirit — even better.

    I’ll post a link on my Facebook page.

    All the good things…,
