A Little More About Us and Our Background
Melted Photography, like most things came about out of necessity. We were originally contacted by a mutual friend to be the exclusive photographers for the 2016 Tampa Bay Classic. At the time, both of us were actively pursuing our own semi-professional photographic interests primarily focused on nature, landscape, and family photography.
The opportunity to serve a much larger community presented a completely different set of problems not the least of which was coming up with a memorable name.
Melanie & Ted = Melted!
The next hurdle was coming up with a delivery platform to provide high resolution digital images to the TBC community after the show and in a very time sensitive environment. Up to this point, much of our product was print based, which is still our preferred delivery method. We built our initial site around the goal of delivering digital proofs from both the 2016 and 2017 Tampa Bay Classic competitions. We will continue to cover events in this manner when the opportunity arises, but we really want to get back to our roots of producing fine art and artistic renderings from our shared love of the world at large. To this end, much of the site moving forward will be dedicated to posting from past travels those in the future (of which we hope there will be many).
We are also moving into the world of curating on behalf of other great photographers we have personally met along the way. The first of these is Danny Garcia who posts on Instagram and Facebook under the moniker ‘Danny Would Go’. His work is amazing and is a perfect fit with our vision of the world we see through our lens. We are proud to be partnered with such talent and will be looking to curate other photographers who share our love of the world and creating art from it!
