It is the 50th Anniversary of ‘Sound of Music’ tomorrow, but for the talented photographer of Northern Ireland the sound of music arrived early. Catherine Mackenzie is an amazing talent, and The Professional Photographer Association of Northern Ireland seems to think so as well. Last night Catherine was not only awarded the ‘Fashion Photographer of the Year’ but many more honours were bestowed upon her. Follow her on her Twitter and Facebook and keep up with this amazing talent who knows how to tell a story with her lens. What is she feeling like after last night? In her own words.
