Cate graduated in 2006 with an Associate of Science in Professional Photography from McIntosh College. It is there where her passion for medium format photography first developed. This premium level of high-end photography is a service she still provides for all her weddings and engagement sessions to this day.
Workshops are another way Cate has expanded her photography education. Creative and intensive, week-long photography workshops have been a content presence in Cate's educational background and are planned into the future. What makes these workshops an important piece in her educational background is the intention of growing her craft, learning the latest techniques, and networking with photographers around the world. These workshops encompass a variety of subjects like landscape techniques, wedding specific intensives and commercial/stock photography. She had attended the The Maine Media Workshops in Camden, Maine and several at Rocky Mountain School of Photography in places like Missoula and Kalispell, Montana as well as Yellowstone National Park.
In 2015, Cate spent 9 weeks in Missoula, Montana at Rocky Mountain School of Photography and completed an Advanced Intensive photography program that covered all aspects of photography, from weddings to fashion to commercial and more.
