Melanie has always loved photography and has been taking pictures since she was a child. Her education covers all different aspects of the art including studio imaging, darkroom processing and more traditional methods.
Melanie likes her work to convey a story- to relate to the viewer and to bring to mind many memories in one single image. She loves people and in her quest to capture their precious memories she tries to produce quality work that shows the unique personalities of her clients. Working with ShutterGuide Tours has given her 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.
