Kate Cornish is an award-winning cinematographer from Sydney, whose work has been featured across Australian television and at festivals nationwide.
With work spanning the narrative, documentary and music video spaces, Kate is passionate about authentic queer representation in her storytelling and has a knack for shooting comedy, action and drama. Recently, she served as DOP on the Channel 7 sketch show We Interrupt This Broadcast, produced by Helium Pictures. Kate’s selection as a recipient of the Screen Australia Credit Maker Initiative secured her a role shooting the anthology series, Erotic Stories (Lingo Pictures/SBS).
Originally, Kate made her mark shooting comedy, most notably for SBS show The Feed where she shot over 150 sketches for television and online. In 2023, she was named by Inside Film as a Rising Talent in Cinematography, and was recognised as an emerging talent and named a Canon Australia Ambassador in 2021. The brand subsequently gave Kate a grant to make a film chronicling the untold story of Australia’s Dykes on Bikes. The film was later awarded a Silver by the Australian Cinematographers Society (Documentary) in 2022.
