About Dirk

newDirk Karsten, internationally acclaimed Dutch photographer, has worked successfully in many different fields: automotive, energy, lighting, food and drink and hospitality. His images have won numerous accolades from Art Director Clubs and Media Awards around the world including a Clio award and Gold for the Lucie Awards. His name appears on the cover and in every issue of 200 Best Adverting Photographers Worldwide and he has been published in the prestigious annuals of Communication Arts, Photo Graphis, Lürzer’s Archive and many more.

Dirk’s personal perspective of space and form remains descriptive and realistic yet draws the onlooker into a timeless ambience. He uses state-of-the-art digital technology to translate his creative ideas onto paper: he photographs every piece of the puzzle that will make up the big picture. Nothing is left to chance.

When Karsten is not directing films or taking photographs he can be found mentoring young aspiring photographers or lecturing on visual communication.
