An Interview with Clicks by Karen, Photography

Meet Karen, the owner of Etsy shop, ClicksByKaren. ClicksByKaren creates fabulous photos available in 5x7. Her shop sections includes flowers, landscapes, military, nautical, people, around town, historical, and bridges. You must check out these amazing photos!

Tell us about yourself, your shop, and what you make.

Photography has been a favorite of mine since I can remember. I decided to open an Etsy store after I moved from PA to SC. My boyfriend and I travel around a lot and both love history and historical places. You will see a lot of history themed photos in my gallery. 

How did you get started in your craft?

Born in Philly but growing up in the "country" I have been taking photos since I can remember-running around with my 110 mm and my Polaroid Instamatic! My mom would complain that I went through the film too quickly and I would have to wait a week or so to get them developed or to get more film. Torture for me, that was for sure.

I was given the honor of choosing a few of Karen's works from her shop to display here. Let me tell you, it was a hard decision given the fact that I love them all!! But here is a taste..



Tell us about your favorite piece.

My favorite piece is actually one from Charlotte, SC when we went to the motor speedway and stayed in the city. It has painted signs of all colors and the miles to each city. It reminds me of "M*A*S*H" and that reminds me of history and so it goes! (Dating myself a little bit, oops!) 

What inspires you?

Inspiration comes to me in all forms. When I look at things that grab my attention, my mind's eye frames it to a photograph and hopefully, if I like it, I have my camera handy!  

Thank you Karen! I truly enjoyed exploring your shop!!
