Felicia "Flee" Kieselhorst

Felicia “Flee” Kieselhorst is a photographer and the owner of FotosByFlee, based in Oakland, California. She is a working professional photographer specializing in family portraiture, corporate events, and wedding photography, but she also enjoys teaching, tutoring, and mentoring. She has an M.F.A. in photography and a B.A. in visual arts. For her, photography is not a job; it’s a passion.

Flee’s photography is best described as intimate, and that’s what she hopes to inspire in her students. She strives to create images that go below the surface, showing a glimpse of the inner person, object, or space and the authentic nature of the subject she is photographing. The messy parts of life are usually the most beautiful, so she wants to create images that show laughing, loving, and hard work. She is drawn to calm moments of introspection but loves capturing the explosive energy of real personalities as well. Her photography is colorful, clean, and often playful; her classroom is the same. She endeavors to make real connections with each student and keeps her classes simultaneously fun and serious.
