fPOE lady of the day: Claudia Willison

About Claudia (from her website):

Born in Bielefeld, Germany, I was interested in visual arts i.e. drawing and painting from a young age. Sparked by my father’s photography when I was a child, this quickly kindled into my own love for photography as a teenager. Starting with a simple camera and film in the 80′s, I later developed my own black & white photos, before joining the digital age in the new millennia. I am very proud to be 100 % self-taught both in photography and in digital developing.

Since the early 90s I have traveled the world, living in Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Bonaire, and the USA. Enjoying new countries, their cultures, their nature, their architecture, whilst always looking for the best perspective to take a photo, to preserve the precious memory of a moment. Hence, photos of architecture, nature, sports, food, plus digital development are my specialty.

Published – I am a passionate photographer and windsurfer and very proud that 

– a selection of my windsurf action shots of freestyle windsurfing on Bonaire were published in the American Windsport Magazine. (Here is my blogpost with pictures of the magazine)

– and my photo ‘Into the Light’ was selected to be part of the quarterly photo magazine fPOE collective

My latest project, on the never ending road to improving my skills, are natural light portraits. This includes families, couples, singles, children and pets. If you are interested, I am always looking for models, please contact me.

Claudia is a member of the female photographers of Etsy team as well as a participate in the upcoming fPOE Artist Event:  For the Love of Photography.

Here are a few of my fave photos from her Etsy shop:

1- this black and white is gorgeous.

2- This beach scene makes me want to grab my bathing suit and head to the coast!

3- Lovely tones in this one.

The fPOE Collective blog!

Over the Holidays, I had the idea that I wanted to start a small magazine, a.k.a. digest.  I really love print and writing but I wanted this digest to be simple yet elegant and readable.  I also wanted to feature the talented ladies from the female Photographers of Etsy team.  Hence, The fPOE Collective was born!

With the help from my friend and fellow fPOE team leader, Diane, the first issue was a success.  We are currently working on our second issue or volume (submission due by midnight tomorrow PST!).  I decided to keep this momentum going and start a blog based solely on the Collective.  Check it out here.   It will feature photographers that were showcased in any of our volumes (past or present).  I want it to be a fun and interactive.  I am excited about it!

Also in the works, is to offer a subscription to the Collective.  I believe this will be a wonderful addition to any library.

Exciting things happening for BleuOiseau Photography and the fPOE team!

So Excited!

When I opened my shop on Etsy, I had no idea what to expect.  I started joining teams and adding people to my circle, just hoping for that first sale.  I haven’t gotten many sales…but I have met some awesome people!  I am pretty involved in the female photographers of etsy team and glad I signed up in time because we have been busy putting together a book.  This is so exciting for me!  I submitted six photos and they were:

We get two photos in the book and …..drumroll….the chosen photos are:

Mt. Hood in the Bedroom

Life as Chairs

I really love my Life as Chairs photo…don’t know why really.  But it just seems so peaceful like they are having a conversation that know one else can join in.
Anyhoot…enjoy and have a great day!
