Contacts & Info

I am a professional photographer in Highlands Ranch CO, originally from the Philadelphia area. I have my undergraduate degree in Theatre from Temple University and my masters from the University of Missouri - Kansas City, in Theatre Performance and Directing. I am a mentor to high school students as well. I have been a photographer since 2001, but officially opened my own business, Kate Schwindt Photography (KSP) in 2011. A good bit of my time is spent donating my photography services for the high schools, and through my interactions with the teachers and students, I began writing this class in order to provide information, tools and resources and hope to the high school students who want to continue performing after high school. I can’t wait to help you Be Seen & Market You!

“I love being able to have those memories forever. It was definitely something I will never forget” Danika (from a KSP promo session, donated to a local high school)

“I’m very grateful for the experiences you created and the examples of a true professional, along with the friendship you’ve extended to the girls which has made a huge impression on them. Thank you so much!!!” Alan
