A free­lance pho­tog­ra­pher who par­tic­u­larly thrives on ad­ven­ture races, Kirsten de­lights in chas­ing af­ter AR teams across wild ter­rain, cap­tur­ing their highs and lows for the world to en­joy. In 2018 she has pho­tographed the first Ex­pe­di­tion Africa and the Nordic Ad­ven­ture Race, be­fore round­ing the year off as of­fi­cial pho­tog­ra­pher at the AR World Cham­pi­onships on the In­dian Ocean is­land of Réu­nion. “La Réu­nion cer­tainly is mag­i­cal,” she says. “Its vol­canic peaks and lava flow scars, ge­o­log­i­cal strata and thick, lush veg­e­ta­tion kept both teams and me­dia on their toes to the very end.” In her day job, Kirsten is Deputy Direc­tor: Con­ser­va­tion Pro­grammes for South African non-profit, Wild­lands Con­ser­va­tion Trust.
