Kathleen Prior

Photographer & Journalist

Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn


I am a multimedia journalist, photographer and videographer with twelve years of world news experience.

Specialising in humanitarian emergencies and global development, I report on complex issues with compassion, raising awareness of the global refugee crisis, the impacts of climate change and survival in the wake of disasters. My recent deployments include the Rohingya crisis, Vanuatu volcano evacuations, the Ebola outbreak and the European refugee crisis.

I showcase unheard voices to tell compelling stories, passionately promoting the rights of women, children, the indigenous and the marginalised. From tribal traditions in Papua New Guinea to adventures in the Amazon, I also cover lifestyle and travel features such as destination guides, hotel reviews and cultural events.

With cross-platform expertise, I have filed written dispatches, photos, and footage for leading media outlets including BBC, CNN, ABC, ITV, Washington Post, Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Vice News and Mail Online. I am also regularly commissioned for INGO content gathering assignments.

My images have been awarded honourable mentions in both the 2016 and 2017 International Photography Awards and a silver medal in the Prix de la Photographie 2017. I also gather and edit video, and travel with a full audiovisual kit. Plus am experienced in field production with broadcast teams and agencies.

I will happily discuss commissions and short-notice assignments anywhere in the world. Please do get in touch!
