“WHAT I LIKE ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHS IS THAT THEY CAPTURE A MOMENT THAT’S GONE FOREVER, IMPOSSIBLE TO REPRODUCE.” – KARL LAGERFELD
Hello, I’m Kirsty Collister.
My journey in photography began with an SLR camera and a darkroom that I built myself. From there my interest in photography grew and while living in China for five years,I was able to refine my personal style and approach to photography.
I’m selective about what I photograph and focus on documenting the day-to-day lives of people from other cultures plus the natural beauty of different cities and terrains.
I had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Asia; I wandered the streets to capture candid moments of the locals as I explored new places.
My travel photography was noticed by Getty Images and I became a contributor for them in 2011. I also hold Licentiateship Honours from the Photographic Society of New Zealand.
I hope you enjoy exploring my photography.
