Wow….honored and happy to discover that I was nominated for the Royal Photographic Society’s “Hundred Heroines list !”
The Royal Photographic Society launched this summer, Hundred Heroines: Celebrating Women in Photography Today, an international campaign initiated to highlight inspirational women in photography.
To celebrate the centenary year of women’s suffrage, Hundred Heroines calls upon
the general public to nominate, alongside leading photography industry figures, their own modern day photography heroines and to increase awareness of the impact women have on this most universal and accessible of visual media.
Through Hundred Heroines, The Royal Photographic Society strives to highlight and promote the overlooked abundance of contemporary female photographic talent in what remains a traditionally male dominated world. …….

Busy times, so here is a quick update on some highlights.
I am very happy to been asked to be one of the Jury members of MontPhoto 2018 international photo contest. The first 100% woman jury in Nature photography, and you should read the comments on this on Social Media 😉 I think its about time that woman finally get the same role and part in Nature photography as our male colleagues.
So a big applause to the staff of this Spanish festival and competition.
At the moment we finished our first judging round and start the second round end of this month. The final round will be in June. More about this and the results later on this year.
Results Biophotocontest 2018, Prairies, Steppes and Savannah are in. An Italian international photo contest.
This years ‘theme’ didn’t gave me a real enthusiastic feel to join at first but it is always good to have an archive and one even made it to the finals, Highly Commented !
Thank you jury!
For choosing my image, taken in the Auvergne, close to my home.
Congrats to the winners and other finalists.

This month On Landscape (a subscription based magazine dedicated to landscape photography) published an interview with me about my book project; Variations in Trees.
Charlotte Parkin (CP): In most photographers’ lives there are ‘epiphanic’ moments where things become clear, or new directions are formed. What were your two main moments and how did they change your photography?
Kristel Schneider (KS): In my younger years I travelled a lot to Asia and was fascinated by the people, their expressions, their colourful clothes, the environment they were living in and I loved the interaction with them.
My photography back then was mainly ‘street-photography’. This all changed when I started taking painting classes in, Amsterdam, my hometown. Unfortunately, I soon realised that I could not draw very well and let’s say I became an abstract painter very fast. The good thing about it was that it had a big influence on my photography; I started looking at other subjects, more in detail and I became drawn to structures and textures. Call it the seeding moment of my abstract photography.
