I have always loved photography and have been taking pictures since I was a child. My education covers all different aspects of the art, including studio imaging, darkroom processing, and more traditional methods (now referred to as alternative) – although most work is done digitally.
I like my work to convey a story, to relate to the viewer, to bring to mind many memories in one single image. I love people and in my quest to capture their precious memories I also try to produce quality work that, at the same time, shows the unique personalities of my clients.
I have always loved St. Augustine and the history surrounding the city. Working with ShutterGuide Tours has given me the opportunity to meet new people as well as teach others photography tools and tips that they can use to capture their own precious, fleeting moments. I look forward to meeting those of you who are visiting our beloved city for the first time (or perhaps, the second or third time...) and taking you on a tour of the Nation's Oldest City that will inspire you.
Tours scheduled with Melanie- Downtown Tours: Fridays 3-5 pm, Sundays 3-5pm
I am a St. Augustine photography enthusiast working with ShutterGuide Tours. I am a longtime resident of the Nationʼs Oldest City and am excited about sharing all of our cityʼs history and photographic possibilities.
In 2006, I earned a degree from one of the highlights of ShutterGuide Tours, Flagler College. Studying Broadcast Communication, I was able to apply photographic principles to the production of video and film, while enjoying still photography on a personal level. After college, I had the pleasure of working on the production of a wide range of projects from action sports videos to reality TV. I have worked concurrently in the hospitality industry and photo, video, and on film projects.
I currently enjoy shooting anything to do with St. Augustine, the outdoors, nature, or my family. Through ShutterGuide, I hope to teach and inspire others to enjoy photography and our awesome surroundings as much as I do.
Tours scheduled with Lee- Downtown Tours: Saturdays 9am -11 am
