For Melissa Gidney, photography isn’t something she does; it’s who she is. One of FBFA’s top selling photographers, Melissa revels in the challenge and excitement of expressing herself through photographs.

Melissa explains where her inspiration comes from, “Everywhere. From foreign lands to my own backyard. From a piece of music to someone’s laugh. From a feeling. Inspiration finds me in so many spaces and places.”

Capturing and sharing that inspiration comes next.

“I love that moment it (inspiration) hits you and you know you HAVE to create it,” says Melissa. “The challenge comes in communicating your vision, giving life and form to what you see in your head.”

This drive to communicate her vision though, doesn’t come at the expense serendipity.

“For the most part I have an idea of what I want to capture,” says Melissa, “but there are always lucky ‘accidents’ or situations where the end product is completely different from your initial intention.

“I think it is important to be unattached to the outcome so that you aren’t limiting yourself along the way to other possibilities. My process is quite organic compared to many photographers, I’m way more emotional than technical.”
