When Adam Sandler began filming a movie in the Boston area, using my former high school as a set, word travelled quickly around our small city on the outskirts of Boston. It didn't take long before a crowd gathered on Broadway to witness the action unfold. Summer vacation had just begun, and my first year of art school had just concluded. Camera in hand, I hurried down to investigate.
Unbeknownst to me at the time, this was my first taste of photojournalism. My photo of Sandler landed on the front page of the local newspaper. A few weeks later, I found myself getting an array of opportunities to cover local news.
As I continued to delve into the world of photojournalism, I received my BFA from Montserrat College of Art with a major in Fine Art and a minor in Art History. I began freelancing for a number of newspapers and gained enough traction to open my own business, Katy Rogers Art Studio. Since then, I have captured hundreds of stories in the Boston area, for newspapers, private clients, and public figures. The urge to capture the world around me has grown exponentially since that summer day. Today, my photographs are published weekly with a combined circulation of more than 100,000.
