About Cathy Cooper
I'm a photographer who likes to travel. Most of my images are obtained on the go, whether it is trekking in remote areas or using local transport from float planes to kayaks. I rarely have time to compose a shot.
When at home, I get involved with local history and the preservation of old buildings. My favourite subject though is the travelling circus that camps nearby once a year.
