Kate Siobhan is a Vancouver, Canada based writer and photographer, specializing in travel and portrait photography. She is an avid volunteer and regularly leads international photography trips with The Giving Lens, taking teams of photographers abroad to volunteer their time and photography skill with amazing non-profits around the world. She is a budding photo-educator, writer, and content creator, freelance for companies around the world.
Kate is the Operations Manager of The Giving Lens, and is a staff writer and regular contributor to Matador Network, the world’s largest independent travel website. On top of all this, Kate is Faculty at the school of Travel Photography, and the school of Travel Writing, offered at MatadorU. She shoots weddings and portraits around her home city of Vancouver, and is a co-leader of the Vancouver chapter of Drink and Click. She is a published author under both her maiden name, Kate Siobhan Mulligan, and her married name, Kate Siobhan Havercroft.
Kate comes from a family of entrepreneurs: her grandmother was an artist who studied under the Group of Seven, and her father is Canadian icon Terry David Mulligan, radio and television host since the 1960s. Her mother is a photographer and former jet-setting airline stewardess (no need to wonder where she gets it from then), and all of her three siblings are also self-employed entrepreneurs.
When not in the chaos of all of the above, Kate likes coffee, beer, sleep, her obese cat (Dexter), her darling husband (Peter), her church and local community, living in East Vancouver, the ocean, and a good book.
