Hi! I'm Melanie.

-I've been taking pictures for over two years now. It started off as a hobby and for the past few months I've been starting to work seriously towards becoming a professional.
-A picture of mine has been published as the centerfold in the April edition of Alternative Press Magazine has included this photo in their list of 100 best photos of 2010. Check it out here.
-I'm currently taking my very first photography class.
-I've been told I have enough imagination to fuel a rocket.
-I would die for any of my friends.
-I don't know what I would do without my camera... or music for that matter.

-I'm 20.

-Short people do have reason.

I do have a question though, What are you thinking of doing with your career in photography?
LemanieCricket Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011
Wow, thank you so much! I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner. I've been much busier than I have been in a long while.

I'm thinking about going into promotional photography. Band promotional shoots, fashion shoots... just anything and everything. I hope to have my own studio, so I'll probably be freelancing it.
