Carsten Krieger is a natural history photographer and author with over 20 years experience. His interest in the natural world started in his early childhood and he picked up his first camera at the age of eight. Carsten started his professional career in 2002 and since then has published and contributed to a number of acclaimed books in English and German, including Ireland's Coast, This is the Burren (the flagship book for the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark), The Wildflowers of Ireland (with Declan Doogue), Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way and Licht, Farbe und Form in der Landschaft.

While Carsten's photography mainly deals with Ireland's nature and landscape, he has explored other topics over the years: Architectural photography, portrait photography (Burren Dinners) and even food photography (The New Irish Table).

He has been working with various conservation groups including The Irish Peatland Conservation Council, The Irish Wildlife Trust, The Tree Council of Ireland and The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group as well as for commercial clients in the tourism sector like Tourism Ireland, Failte Ireland, The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark, Loop Head Tourism and others.

In 2020 Carsten was appointed an AnTaisce Climate Ambassador, joined the writing team of Nature First and became a project manager for Loop Head Together for Nature which resulted in the ongoing Wild Loop Head project.

Currently Carsten is working on two natural history books and as a project manager for the Crossbill Guides Foundation.
