Originally a Cambridge native Kirstin Sinclair is an accomplished photographer and published author with a BA Honors degree in Fine Art Photography from Cardiff College of Art, currently living in East London with 3 black cats!
She spent the first 8 years of her career shooting documentary photography at the international catwalk shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris for British Elle magazine. This work inspired the publication of her book 'A Front Row Seat' published in November 2011 by ACC Publishing and includes a foreword written by supermodel Erin O'Connor. The book launched alongside an exhibition 'Catwalk to Cover' at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London the same year, Kirstin helped curate the exhibition that exhibited her work as well as the work of three other established photographers from the catwalk industry. Several established design houses lent pieces from their collections to be exhibited amongst the photos including over 20 pieces from the Prada retrospective, Catwalk to Cover has since gone on to tour even traveling as far as New Zealand.
The book and exhibition caught the attention of the world renowned visual media company Getty Images as a result Kirstin has gone on to become a well known contributor and assignment photographer for the company and has currently been working with them for the last 7 years. She has continued to work at fashion weeks around the world mainly specialising in street style, arrivals and backstage and with her considerable experience in the entertainment space also regularly covers major industry events such as The British Fashion awards and Royal Ascot as well as in-store events, parties and the red carpet for clients that include Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Harrods, Yohji Yamamoto and Escada.
Aside from event work Kirstin has a comprehensive portfolio that covers editorial, advertising, portrait and look book commissions. Her work has been published both online and in magazines all over the world including British Vogue, Elle UK, Grazia, Get the Gloss and Net-a-Porter and has worked directly on shoots with clients including Chanel, Heathrow, Tod's, Schwarzkopf, Super Drug, Miss Selfridge, Matalan and Fuji Film.
When she's not working Kirstin loves yoga, swimming and the beach!
