Fotojo

This week we have Jo of fotojo.etsy.com. Jo has been photographing people, places and things for about 20 years and is based in Savannah GA. She has been selling on Etsy for a year.

How did you choose your shop name?
Brain storming with family, fotojo won!

What is your specialty and what drew you to it?
Photography is my specialty, I received at camera for Christmas one year and fell in love. I seemed to have a gift for it. So family and friends were soon asking me to do their photos.


What inspired the “birth” of this item?
The Cardinal himself.

Does this item have any personal significance to you (ie-I’m passionate about bunnies, or I just love trees and photograph every interesting one I see…)?
I enjoy watching / feeding the birds, this was taken in my backyard. I have bird sanctuary so to speak, everything a bird needs to live. LOL

What is your favorite part of the process of creating your item?
Wow, that’s a hard one. When you see the thing or person and there is a leap inside and you know it’s a got shot, then loading up or printing the photo and seeing that you were right and it’s a really great shot. As a photographer you will take many shots before you get that great “one.”


Please briefly describe a workday in your “studio” and how you created this item.

I up load my photos and began sorting through them looking for that perfect shot. In other words pictures that do not need Photoshop touch’s, but is great just as it is. There is nothing wrong with using photoshop and I do use it, but I get excited when I get the prefect shot on my own.
