Hello! I'm Kirsten Nicolaisen, a freelance photographer based in Brooklyn, New York.


An avid runner, hiker, and traveler, I live for the rhythm of a bustling city as much as I do the great outdoors. These passions are reflected in my work, which focuses primarily on travel, street and lifestyle photography. I aim to evoke a sense of nostalgia and familiarity through my images, and strive to capture moments of stillness amidst the chaos of everyday life. 


In addition to photography, I spent ten years in the news industry working as an audience journalist and digital producer. This afforded me opportunities to photograph major news events and hone my editorial style. Most recently, my commissioned work has centered on food and restaurant photography in New York City. 


Shoot me an email to inquire about collaborations, commissions and prints (or just to say hi!). Available anywhere.
