About me - Kate Z. Media

Kate Zarifeh

Sports + Lifestyle Photographer

I am a freelance photographer based on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia and my main passion is sports photography.   I love the challenge of trying to capture an athlete in motion and most sports interest me as each sport has a unique angle to try and capture.  

I got my start in photography in high school where I worked part time as a freelance sports photographer and writer which led to articles and race reports being published in national sporting magazines. I went on to study Television Production at University and after this went to work with one of the national broadcasters here in Australia. I worked in electronic news gathering (ENG) and worked as an editor, sound recordist and studio camera operator in a busy TV news environment for three years.

I also spent time working as a camera assistant on outside broadcasts and have worked at the Olympics as a crane grip and other sporting events including Apia International Tennis, ITU World Cup Triathlons, World Cup Mountain Biking, Big Day Out.

I’ve now moved back into photography where I love the challenge of trying to capture a fast moving subject and document visually the mood and intensity of a race or an event in a single frame.  I also enjoy trying to document real life around me.
