About

Cat Burton - Photographer

Cat Burton is a fine art photographer living near Perth in Scotland.

A fan of all things dark and eerie, her work is influenced by myth, folklore and gothic fantasy.

After travelling the world with her camera, she has now made a permanent home in Scotland. From her home studio in Scone, Cat works full time on her fine art photography and also offers photographic workshops and mentoring. She regularly exhibits her work and is often asked to speak at photography clubs.

Cat’s work is often macabre and eerie while still evoking a serene, natural feeling. Her images are primarily composite artworks of natural subjects, comprised of multiple original photographs to make a scene (think of it like a collage). Each image takes many days in Photoshop to perfect the final result and Cat only uses her own photographs to make her artworks. This means some images can take months to complete if she wants to add a certain animal (such as a deer) and has to travel around the Scottish highlands photographing them until she finds the perfect one (in the right pose, and ideally the right light!).

Cat counts Edgar Allan Poe’s stories and Tim Burton movies as a large influence on her work. Other people have said Cat’s work reminds them of Hitchcock films, which describes them perfectly.

A huge fan of all things Scottish and her new home town, Cat aims to work with local Perthshire companies wherever possible in the running of her business. All the framing for her artworks is carried out by the skilled craftsmen at the West End Gallery in Perth. All parcel postage is done by Pharos Parcel in Perth. For events such as her Edinburgh Exhibition, Cat serves Cairn O’ Mohr fruit wines from the fantastic winery near Errol. There is such a fantastic array of talent in Perthshire that it makes sense to work together to help local small businesses.

Prior to following her dream to become a full time photographer, Cat worked as a video games developer, running her own business and working for clients globally.
