About Kirk Mastin

Founder & CEO of Mastin Labs

I am Kirk Mastin the Founder and CEO of Mastin Labs, a leading maker of professional film emulation presets for Adobe Lightroom and Capture One, as well as mobile photography app, Filmborn. 

I was formerly a photojournalist for The New York Times and LA Times with featured work in National Geographic Adventure and Time Magazine. 

Before founding Mastin Labs in 2013, I ran Mastin Studio, a premium film wedding photography studio where I developed the hybrid photography method of blending digital and film cameras together, which became the origin of Mastin Labs. 

Now I mostly spend my time shooting my 8x10 film camera, cold water surfing, sailing around the Puget Sound, skiing and raising two rambunctious girls.
