Read Between The Lattes

There is an amazing creative community that contribute to The Shopkeepers. Most notably the photographers that generously share their images here, on The Shopkeepers website, and on our Instagram account. We realize that there is no way we can share all the lovely shops that exist in the world without the talented community of photographers that contribute to our platform. So we are honoring some of those creatives by shining a spotlight on their work in this series. Claudia Williams a digital content creator aka as readbetweenthelattes shares lots of lovely shopfronts on her Instagram grid. She favors “Good Books & Coffee Nooks” so there are plenty of wonderful bookstore and coffee shops to discover.

I first noticed Claudia’s beautiful Madrid storefronts that she captured when she lived there several years ago. Today she is based in Brooklyn, NY. She uses a Google Pixel 6PRO to capture her shots that she edits using a combination of VSCO, Lightroom and Snapseed. It’s taken her three years to get her account readbetweenthelattes to where it is today. And she is beyond grateful for all the friendships and opportunities along the way.

Claudia loves to use video for promoting a place, showing every corner and sharing the overall vibe. Though she wishes there wasn’t such a push for video these days, as she appreciates the beauty of a still image.

Follow Claudia readbetweenthelattes to discover coffee shops, bookshops, flower shops and more, from Boston to Manchester and Madrid to Denver. And lots of places in-between. And check out other creative contributors the September chronicles, wanderlust & whiskey and Lou Loxley.
