MEET CATE SCAGLIONE, OWNER AND ARTIST My former career in commercial advertising allowed me to travel the globe and direct beautifully epic campaigns by world renowned photographers. But something was missing. I think it was my own inner artist with her own purpose, and she was dying to create. Creative entrepreneurship is my nirvana. My NJ-based business model is based authenticity, with an emerging specialization in boudoir paintings. Q & A with CATE... Who would you like to most like to photograph, and why? I am very much drawn to deep, passionate souls. I see more beauty in that, than a very pretty facade. If it’s a celebrity for example, she’d be the less “obvious” icon of beauty or sensuality. I’d love to be the first photographer to capture her reveal them her that way, showing a sexy, romantic side of them that perhaps no one has seen before. Even if I had to go back in time, some examples that come to mind; Amelia Earhart, the late Princess Diana, or modern day women like Adele, Ellen DeGeneres… I could go on and on. What kind of beauty stops you in your tracks? I consider myself an enviromental potrait artist, often photographing my subjects as a part of, and immersed within their surroundings. Therefore, I a’m pretty intoxicated by beautiful settings, props and spaces, especially things with rich history. It can be an old crumbling house, antiques, a garden, or an awesome set of fabrics. Special spaces and places move me emotionally. What are your five desert-island must-haves? My laptop, A Canon with a 70-200 lens, mascara, a venti starbucks, The Great Gastby with the guarantee of a hammock to read it in. (Over and over again). If you could create gossip about yourself, what would it be? I wouldn’t.The older I get, I feel like I’m starting to care less what people say and think about me…for better or worse. I laugh way too much and I try not to take myself too seriously. What is your personal manifesto? To be a good person and create a full life. By creating a full life, I enable my creation of beautiful art. By creating beautiful art, I am creating a prosperous business. By creating a prosperous business, I can help people build their dreams. Everything will happen exactly the way I choose it to happen. What belief would you give your life for? The guarantee of my children’s happiness & success… by whatever definition they assign to their own happiness & success.

PRACTICING WHAT SHE PREACHES...  CATE'S BOUDOIR SELFIE

Q & A WITH CATE...

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MOST LIKE TO PHOTOGRAPH, AND WHY?

I AM VERY MUCH DRAWN TO DEEP, PASSIONATE SOULS. I SEE MORE BEAUTY IN THAT, THAN A VERY PRETTY FACADE. IF IT’S A CELEBRITY FOR EXAMPLE, SHE’D BE THE LESS “OBVIOUS” ICON OF BEAUTY OR SENSUALITY. I’D LOVE TO BE THE FIRST PHOTOGRAPHER TO CAPTURE HER REVEAL THEM HER THAT WAY, SHOWING A SEXY, ROMANTIC SIDE OF THEM THAT PERHAPS NO ONE HAS SEEN BEFORE. EVEN IF I HAD TO GO BACK IN TIME, SOME EXAMPLES THAT COME TO MIND; AMELIA EARHART, THE LATE PRINCESS DIANA, OR MODERN DAY WOMEN LIKE ADELE, ELLEN DEGENERES… I COULD GO ON AND ON.

WHAT KIND OF BEAUTY STOPS YOU IN YOUR TRACKS?

I CONSIDER MYSELF AN ENVIROMENTAL POTRAIT ARTIST, OFTEN PHOTOGRAPHING MY SUBJECTS AS A PART OF, AND IMMERSED WITHIN THEIR SURROUNDINGS. THEREFORE, I A’M PRETTY INTOXICATED BY BEAUTIFUL SETTINGS, PROPS AND SPACES, ESPECIALLY THINGS WITH RICH HISTORY. IT CAN BE AN OLD CRUMBLING HOUSE, ANTIQUES, A GARDEN, OR AN AWESOME SET OF FABRICS. SPECIAL SPACES AND PLACES MOVE ME EMOTIONALLY.

MY LAPTOP, A CANON WITH A 70-200 LENS, MASCARA, A VENTI STARBUCKS, THE GREAT GASTBY WITH THE GUARANTEE OF A HAMMOCK TO READ IT IN. (OVER AND OVER AGAIN).

IF YOU COULD CREATE GOSSIP ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I WOULDN’T.THE OLDER I GET, I FEEL LIKE I’M STARTING TO CARE LESS WHAT PEOPLE SAY AND THINK ABOUT ME…FOR BETTER OR WORSE. I LAUGH WAY TOO MUCH AND I TRY NOT TO TAKE MYSELF TOO SERIOUSLY.

WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL MANIFESTO?

TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND CREATE A FULL LIFE. BY CREATING A FULL LIFE, I ENABLE MY CREATION OF BEAUTIFUL ART. BY CREATING BEAUTIFUL ART, I AM CREATING A PROSPEROUS BUSINESS.

WHAT BELIEF WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE FOR?

THE GUARANTEE OF MY CHILDREN’S HAPPINESS & SUCCESS… BY WHATEVER DEFINITION THEY ASSIGN TO THEIR OWN HAPPINESS & SUCCESS.
