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 recognised 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.

He was awarded 2017 Botswana’s Wildlife Photographer of The Year for his captivating portfolio created at Mashatu.
