handmade feature & giveaway | tina crespo photography


So I looove Tina Crespo. Her vintagey photos of birds and beaches make me want to hop on a plane right this second and head somewhere quiet and close to nature. I just bought this, this, and this, and I'm dying to get them home and up on the walls! She's having a spring cleanup sale right now with photos starting at only a buck fifty, so I highly recommend you shop it up right now. Like now - seriously. She's also one of the nicest people on Etsy (because I've encountered all of them...?) and a pleasure to work with! Aaand once you see her epic hat, you're gonna love. this. girl.


Q. What's the story behind Tina Crespo?
A. Oh boy, I'm not sure if there is a whole story. I'll break it down to the basics: I make awkward jokes, I read books, I photograph things (...duh, Tina.), envy dog owners, wouldn't mind living in a zombie movie (if I was properly equipped, of course.) & love spending time outside.

Q. Let's talk pets: cats, dogs, barracudas, kangaroo rats? 
A. I have one amazing cat, Piggy aka Ms Piggles, Wiggles, Chief Wiggums, Wiggly, Mama. She's a sassy tux kitty. Charlie boy, my dad's dog, is a newer member of our family. He's basically my shadow, following me around like the little brother I never had.

Q. What sage bit of advice do you have for the shell-shocked just starting out on Etsy?
A. Breathe! The day that I was all ready to list items, I must of looked crazy because I was talking to myself and trying to whiz through the whole process (I had previously written down the descriptions of photos and what not to be more "prepared"). My hands were shaking and I was afraid of...well, I don't know exactly. You feel a lot better after your first 10 items are listed. After that, you pretty much need to advertise your site nonstop. Whether it be family, friends, Facebook friends, people on flickr. Just get your name OUT there! I didn't sleep a lot that first week.

Also keep in mind, most people don't sell the first day. Maybe some do ::shrug:: but whatever you do, don't get discouraged. Keep at it, and good people will find you.

Q. If you could snap a portrait of any one person in the world, who would it be? Where?
A. I think I really would have liked being a photographer during the Dust Bowl era. Trucking around with a 4x5 Camera & sheets of film, capturing the faces and world that crumbled, would have been a monumental experience.

Q. As a food photog, you've probably seen some pretty  epic dishes. What's the most interesting or intriguing thing you've ever eaten?
A. I'm half Puerto Rican (as well as German and Native American), and my grandmother makes Pulpo Salad. Yep. Octopus. I've tried it, but can't say it's my go to dish. Interestingly enough, I love Eel Sushi.

As a food photographer, one the strangest things we've photographed has got to be L.A Weight Loss food. Every dish, whether it be the beef stroganoff, veggie lasagna, chicken cacciatore - it all smelled exactly the same. A weird, plastic-y, non food smell.

Q. What photographer most inspires you and your work?
A. When I was younger, I adored David LaChapelle. I still do, as well as Kareem Black. Which is kind of funny, because they are both really outrageous "portrait/celebrity" photographers. Totally not what I am doing. 

The fine art work, I suppose, is mostly inspired by nature and things outside of reality. It's about creating a moment or feeling in someway.



Q. You've taken some pretty stunning nature pictures, so I'd love to see what you could do in Semuc Champey, Guatemala (Google it, people!). Where in the world would you most like to capture nature?
A. I seriously need to get to Thailand. End of story. :)

Q. Tell us a joke.
A. A family of three tomatoes were walking downtown one day when the little baby tomato started getting behind. The dad tomato walks back to the baby tomato, stomps on her, squashing the little tomato into a red paste and says "Ketchup!"

Haaaaaaaaaaaa ba dun..dun. Funny? No? Ok, don't ask me to tell anymore jokes.


Q. What do you think will be the biggest difference in the world in 50 years?
A. This is seriously a hard question. It can go either way, really. Um, there will be lots of robots doing every day things for humans, cars that drive sideways, cops who have shoulders and arms made from the same material that robots are made of and grandmothers who make super amazing sweet potato pie.

Wait...I might have just described the plot of I, Robot.

Q. I'm an absolute quote junkie. What's your all-time favorite quote?
A.
"Look!!! Applesauce!" ".....That sign says Applause, not applesauce."

"Oh, this photo is the only one I have of me with a camera. A lot of my friends hate that hat, which amuses me to no end. Now they have to look at it forever :) Hah! Anddddddd you can quote me on that." Definitely worth quoting!!

  5. When it comes to pictures, nothing is better than being surronded with familar faces. I love pictures of my family.

    But if I were to purchase a picture, it would have to be of something calming and earthy. My preferences change everyday, so I don't know if I could name just one thing.

  20. I love Tina Crespo's "22 Signed 8x8 Photograph"-

    I adore how she incorporates some vintage style into her photos. The pastel colors are very pleasant to look at and make you feel something inside. Very inspirational and soothing.

  24. oh, god, i can only pick one favorite? i've dealt with tina before on etsy when she ordered a custom bag(and quickly became a fan) and i have become a HARDCORE fan of hers immediately after viewing her photos. AND she gave us a photo as an appreciation gift-so if you didn't know she was awesome before, you do now!

    as for my current favorite, this one took my breath away:
    "flight"
    http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34155640

    so wonderful, and what a great interview!

  27. wow! way too many favorites! some of the ones a find really enchanting are If You'd Let Me In, I See You Clock, and Leaving Town. I love her ability to make photographs have that nostalgic feel to them, like you were there too. they are all so captivating and beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think I would really like to have a photo of something mysterious and dark. Maybe some book left open, eyeglasses sprawled, and spots of "something" on the pages. I know that sounds morbid, but I just think it would be neat to see how Tina would deal with something a little more dark.

  41. I love the colors of her photos! They seem almost like a dream. Apparently, I'm also a bit drawn to the photos with spoons- milk and metal and wishful spoons are both lovely! They are all lovely- how would one decide?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Whoops, and my email is jenrcui at yahoo dot com. I'll answer the second question with this one. I'd like a picture of myself. Is that egotistical? I'm always the one taking pics so I'm never in them!

  78. I would most like to have a picture of my great-grandparents on their wedding day. I have a collection of family photos, all taken on their wedding days. But sadly, I do not have one of my great-grandparents. I can only imagine what it would have been like! Classy, elegant, and beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  79. What a wonderful shop... it was already in my etsy favorites! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'm going to go with "frailty." I LOVE the color, and it's a cool combination of the natural and the human-created. I love that her photos look so timeless, like they could be yesterday or 50 years ago or 50 years from now. It's like they're outside the confines of time. Beautiful!

    "The Blues" is wonderful--reminds me of a vintage postcard.

    Tina's photos remind me of when I was a kid and would lay in the sun with my eyes shut, imagining scenery from the books I'd read lately.

  118. I love 'If You'd Let Me In'. It's hard to put your finger on what is great about Tina's photography. It has a dreamy feel about it, but it's also very real. Her photos seem to be of objects we've all seen, and she gives them a feeling we've all felt. Her work, then, feels very familiar. But it's actually very difficult to achieve the effect of familiarity and comfort, so it is even clearer how great her work is! I LOVE it!

  123. I love the "free fall 8x12 signed print." I believe that her photography style truly captures the beauty of simplicity.

  134. One thing I would love to have a picture of are cowboy boots. Really old vintage cowboy boots. I have a pair of my grandfathers and I love photography - been trying to get a good shot, but Tina Crespo is amazing... I'd love a shot like that.

  135. I like this one a lot- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27633317- Tina's images have a certain softness to it.

  136. I like the photo Distractions, because I like to stare into the sea. I like the style of photos which give a different view of a small or specific item.

  137. I most like to have pictures that capture a moment in time, which only exsisted for such a small moment, it could not otherwise be seen or appreciated.

  139. My favorites are "Distractions" and "Cloud Study Three"--they evoke feelings of nostalgia and longing for a previous time in my life. They are both wonderful.

  143. I love the "daisy of love" photo, and what I like about her style is the faded nostalgia present in each one.

  152. My favorite item is the free fall 8x12 signed print. I like how she pays careful attention to the colors in her prints. They all compliment each other so well!

  153. I would most like to have a picture of a bathtub looking straight down on the tub.... with only bubbles in it.... I think that would be the neatest bathroom art. It's hard to find good bathroom art.

  158. It is probably cliche but I would adore a picture of my family all together, sadly it will never happen because of a family feud. I can always dream!

    Actually I like everything but if I must pick one it's called "Leaving Town" in the Mexico section. Everything looks so vintage and the use of pastel hues makes every single photograph have a dreamlike quality. Absolutely beautiful!

    Tina has about everything I could imagine in her shop. If I could have one photo or group of photos it would be of seashells and sea glass on the beach.
