ORYX Photography: Photo Tour Leader: Kirsten Frostprevious page
Kirsten Frost began his interest in nature and photography at a young age with a small point-and-shoot camera in hand. His work soon became recognized in the South African photography scene, and by the age of 16 he was sponsored professional level equipment. His work was seen gracing the covers of national magazines before the tender age of 18. Kirsten’s passion for Africa’s wild places led him to further his studies in Nature Conservation. After successfully completing his theory component, he went on to gain experience in the field, with a particular interest in wetland ecosystems.
His photographs have been featured in numerous national and international publications including; African Birdlife, Africa Geographic, GO! Magazine, Getaway Magazine, Birders World (USA), Wildside Magazine, Country Life Magazine. PIX Magazine, Wildlife Photographic Magazine and Digital Camera Magazine (UK). Kirsten has also been awarded in numerous photographic competitions, including the Botswana Wildlife Photographer of the Year, FujiFilm Getaway Wildlife Awards, GO! Magazine Photography Competition, and 2017 Nature’s Best Africa Photography Awards.
After completing his studies, Kirsten spent time photographing along the Chobe River in Botswana. He later secured a job as a photographic guide at Mashatu Game Reserve, which was his home for a seven-month stint, where he shared his knowledge on wildlife photography and the natural environment with guests. He was awarded 2017 Botswana’s Wildlife Photographer of The Year for his work created at Mashatu. Kirsten has since lead photo safaris to Kenya’s Maasai Mara, Botswana and Madagascar. His image awarded in the 2017 Nature’s Best Photography Africa awards is currently on exhibit at Iziko South Africa Museum in Cape Town, South Africa.
As one of ORXY’s youngest leaders, Kirsten’s future expeditions are sure to be exciting adventures in search of nature’s fleeting moments.
