Mountain Mermaid Photography | About

Hi, I'm Karsten Shein (the diver, not the seal). I specialize in photographs of the natural and built world around us. Although I am based in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, my passion for scuba diving has led me to focus on underwater photography. I've been taking pictures for over 30 years, but didn't go 'pro' until a friend asked me to shoot an NFL game for him in the late 1990s. I hope you enjoy my work and will consider adding a print to your wall or publication.
