She’s used to being in front of the camera, but now former BBC news correspondent, Catherine “Cat” Marston is launching a new career in photography.
She’s set up her own business, Cat Hepple Photography, which has got off to a stylish start with Catherine’s appointment as official event photographer for Harvey Nichols, Leeds.
Catherine has reported events in the North of the England to millions of TV viewers and radio listeners for nearly twenty years. Now she’ll be working on the other side of the lens specialising in corporate, fashion and social photography: weddings, special occasions and portraits.
Catherine has long been passionate about photography and has perfected her technical skills through a year-long bespoke training programme at the Annabel Williams studio in Cumbria which has produced some of the UK’s top photographers.
Catherine says: “Journalism has been my world but it was time for a new direction and a re-assessment of my life and priorities. Photography draws on the skills I learned as a reporter and the intensive course of study enabled me to learn from respected tutors any techniques I didn’t already have at my fingertips.”
Catherine is joined in the business, which is based in Leeds, by husband Gary Hepple. The couple have a four month old baby.

Catherine was brought up in Southampton and went to University in Manchester before landing her first job at BBC Radio Newcastle. From there it was across to Cumbria where Catherine presented and reported for Border Television working with the likes of Fiona Armstrong who’d just returned to Border after a spell on the TV-AM sofa. Catherine’s TV break came with the launch at the end of the 1990s of BBC News 24. Her skill and style quickly led to opportunities in Home Affairs before she became the BBC’s North of England Correspondent.
