New Members

I want to extend many thanks to each and every one of you who have come and paid us a visit since we started writing a few months ago. We appreciate your feedback and treasure your comments! There won't be new posts for a little while, because we're going on holiday break to spend a little time with cherished friends and family. We'll be back after the new year with lots of fresh articles, interviews and (of course) beautiful photo presentations -- we are the Photographers of Etsy team after all! And we are looking forward to welcoming more talented folks into our group next year. Until then, have a look and enjoy at the unique points of view, creativity and skill in these images from our newest teammates. Fortunately for us, they've been to a lot of places, seen a lot of things and have recorded it all.

The New Members feature is compiled by Gigi Leonard. Gigi is a Chicago-based bon vivant and self-taught photographer whose camera lens automatically turns toward the poetry of the everyday. At the moment, she is currently working on a new image series, thinking about having another cup of coffee and gritting her teeth before heading out to shoot in the cold winter weather. You can see her work here and view her latest finds from the world of art and decor on her blog, the roadside scholar.
