Deborah was recently joined in her business by her husband Don who also has a long history in photography and the arts. Don maintains a significant collection of nature photography (Kates Nature Photography) that both he and Deborah have contributed to. Images from the collection have been featured in several national publications and won several photography awards. Don also runs another photography business along with Deborah called Shooters Images. Shooters Images specializes in custom motorcycle photography and photography of the biker lifestyle and culture. Their photography has been featured in the major motorcycle magazines (Easyriders, V-Twin, American Cycle Magazine, Hot Bike and many others) and has appeared on the History Channel documentaries. They recently began shooting for Harley-Davidson’s HOG magazine and Toyota, Inc.
Deborah believes in staying on the cutting edge of wedding photography and was one of the first wedding photographers to offer “fusion” video of weddings/engagements. Don has begun to incorporate video into Deborah Kates Fine Photography’s wedding packages by using the new Canon 5D Mark II, Nikon D3s, and Canon 1D Mark IV. Their videos combine video footage and still photography into a creative short DVD presentation of their clients wedding/engagement. The DVDs are available in standard definition and now HD/Blu-ray. Many clients have an HD DVD of their engagement session created for presentation at their reception.
Together, Deborah and Don provide two unique, artistic photojournalistic perspectives on the weddings they shoot.
