Katie Moran

Age: 18

Residence: Plum

Family: Parents, Debbie and Bill Moran; three brothers, Chris, 24, Bill, 21, and Tom, 16

School: She is a senior at Plum High School.

Noteworthy: Moran has had two photos published in the Cleveland-based Alternative Press, a national magazine that covers music and youth culture. She started taking photos of local bands when she was 16 and followed them to bigger tours, where she also shot other bands, such as Green Day. She started contacting music publications to see if they were interested. Alternative Press was and started contracting with her to get live shots of bands the magazine is profiling. Her first published photo was of Yellowcard performing at Mr. Small's Theatre in Millvale. It ran in the February issue. The next was of Matchbook Romance performing at Mr. Small's Theatre. It ran in the March issue, which already is out.

Activities: Guitar, music and art. After a couple of years shooting bands and taking online college courses, Katie plans to study photography at Columbia College in Chicago.

Quote: "I like to make it so that when you look at the picture, you can feel the action," she said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
