Hi there, I’m Kirsten — a Brooklyn-based photographer and journalist.
I grew up in a sunny, dry desert suburb of Los Angeles, California and spent my college and early twenties years in the stunning Pacific Northwest. I hold a journalism degree from the University of Oregon and have spent the last decade of my career working as an audience journalist in local and national news media.
I’ve been experimenting with photography since I was a teenager, but it wasn’t until I moved to New York City four years ago that I got serious about my passion for visual storytelling. New York has proved to be a magical setting for a street photographer like myself. I spend most of my time seeking and capturing still points in the chaos of everyday life here.
My work also includes portraiture and event photography, as well as scenes from my travels across the United States and Europe. I’m currently developing my commercial photography business and am available for freelance work and commissioned images.
When I’m not working, I spend my time running through Prospect Park, going upstate for weekend hikes, or swimming in the ocean in the summer.
Thanks for stopping by. Contact me if you’d like to collaborate creatively, book a photoshoot or just say hi.
