Melanie Despres has always been a creative being. As a child growing up in Massachusetts she had the luxury of experiencing the ever changing seasonal colors as well as having access to the beautiful Cape Cod shores. She dabbled with painting, crafts, and sculpture before she found her true calling. “The first time I picked up a film camera I was about 10, I could feel the connection between myself and the camera. I read through the manual and taught myself how to use it. Being fascinated with the endless possibilities of photography, I decided to continue on this adventure and study the field.” Melanie attended Burlington College in Burlington VT where she received her BFA in photography. In addition to her photography degree she has an AA in Fine Arts. A degree that helped train her eye for her photography career.
