"In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary"
Melanie Guerra is an award-winning photographer specializing in portrait, commercial and fine art photography. She shares her passion though her work and through teaching the art of photography to adults and children of all ages.
"Whether capturing the personality of a person, the joy of childhood, the perfection of a beautiful room or showcasing a great product, I see the world around me in terms of light and captured moments – and often the tiniest details become the focus of a larger story. In addition to photography, I am an accomplished jewelry designer, and I think that perhaps this attention to miniscule detail stems from this work. Another result of this work with metal, gems and other natural materials is my obsession with texture, In recent years I have gone beyond the visual texture of my photographs to the tangible textures created by printing to various surfaces. I currently print all of my fine art images to linen or metal."
