Karine Aigner

Karine Aigner’s life of travel and adventure uncover her fervor to tell the stories of life through the lens of a camera; her passion has become stories of animals, their relationships to humans, and their own world. She has worked with children all over the world, using the camera as a tool to teach awareness and conservation. In her spare time, she works with public school systems, trying to get kids with cameras into nature.

For nine years, as the Senior picture editor for National Geographic Kids magazine, Karine used osmosis to suck in all she could about good storytelling and the makings of a “good picture.” In 2011 Karine ventured outside the office walls to a life of freelance photography and picture editing.

Karine is an associate fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) and a member of NANPA. Karine’s work has been featured in National Geographic Magazine, GEOLino, Nature Conservancy Magazine, and BBC Wildlife to name a few. Her imagery is represented by National Geographic Creative, and Tandem Stills & Motion.

Karine lives in Washington, DC.  Learn more about Karine and see her beautiful work on her website.
