Moment in time photography

Enter my shop here:

My name is Marisa Kestel. I am a 40 year old self-taught photographer and have been taking photographs for over 10 years. Well, credit is owed to the many photographers I have known over the years who selflessly shared their knowledge of cameras, tips, and tricks, and just trial and evolution.

The images you see here represent the evolution of my photography. Both in my eye and within my working knowledge of the craft. My photography is about a moment in time and how I saw that moment. How I saw that moment as a captured memory, a frozen component of the world around me.

My surroundings heavily influence my subject matter, from the many places I have traveled and have lived.

I love finding a photo. This all began when I moved to Portland and existed within its city. Adventures around the Northwest formed a love of subjects with some grit. Street life, urban decay and rural footprints. Currently living in the south, I readily find a continued love with abandoned cars and trucks, old buildings. They have so much character and texture that smoothly translates onto the print.

But as a traveler, I floated within the foreign landscape of cities, towns, and countries with camera in hand. The street scenery and those architectural gems have withstood time and still reflect a unique beauty one cannot pass up when you are a shutter bug.

I thoroughly enjoy taking photographs with 35mm cameras, both with film and digital. And my dream is to enhance your space with my images and to incorporate a little mojo into your world.

Shipping FAQs

A: Prints 11x14 and smaller: 3-4 Business days.

Q: How will my order ship?

A: ALL items are shipped in sturdy packaging. Prints are shipped flat.

Q: Who is shipping my order?

A: Prints size 11x14 and smaller are shipped directly from my studio in North Carolina, USA.

Q: Will I receive tracking info for my package?

A: Yes, tracking info will be sent to you once your items are packed and includes a link to check the status of the shipment. Please note - International shipments are not always updated once packages leave the US.

Q: When will I receive my order if I live in the US?

A: Packages are usually delivered within 3-6 days from the day of shipment, however delivery times depend on how well the postal service is currently running. (may take longer during holidays)

Q: When will I receive my order if I live outside of the US?

A: Most international orders make it to their destinations in a timely manner but occasionally packages get stuck in customs and take longer. For this reason please allow up to 6 weeks for delivery. The tracking number I send will follow your package until it leaves the US, but then it is in the hands of your country's postal establishment. If you have not received your order in 6 weeks, please check with your local post office. On occasion, international postal systems may not release packages to recipients until a customs charge has been paid.

International buyers, please note

I do not collect any customs when sending packages. Any custom fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and brandMOJO Images is not responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns of international orders will not be accepted due to customs fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
All photos are digitally enhanced. Some photos are enhanced more than others to achieve a certain look or feel. Since all monitors are not equally calibrated, there may be a difference in colors from what you see on your screen.

Many of these photos were photographed using film (35mm neg or slide, 120 format neg or slide) and then digitally scanned. Others have been digitally photographed.

For custom sizes, please contact me. These photos will be printed at a professional lab and mailed within 7-10 days after payment has been received.
