About J. Kat Photo, Inc.

Joanna Katarzyna Woronowicz Johnson. J. Kat for short. Born in Warsaw, Poland. Immigrated to the United States in 1983. Fluent in English, Polish and a little Spanish.

Enthusiastic, creative and energetic. Her Joie de vivre is capturing the moment in a unique and fresh way. Provoking thought. Inciting a grin. Moving the heart. Captivating photos of people, places and events, specializing in finely crafted corporate portraits.

Grateful to be doing what she loves, Kat is available for editorial and commercial clients worldwide.
