Being a photographer has allowed me to combine all of my passions: relationships,  people, nature and storytelling.<br />
<br />
A first grade field trip to the New England Aquarium ignited my passion for photography.  I’ve also been writing since elementary school and was known to skip recess to finish a story!  I put my love for writing and photography together at NYU, studying documentary filmmaking and creative writing.   <br />
<br />
I’m dedicated to exploring and capturing the invisible space in a relationship whether that relationship is between two people or the subject and the space they inhabit.  I’m fascinated by the invisible cord that connects things.  <br />
<br />
My wanderlust and passion for conservation have inspired me to pursue environmental photography and filmmaking as well. I hope my conservation work will inspire people to explore and examine their relationship to our environment.   You can see my environmental work here:  <a href=""></a>

After graduating film school at NYU, Melissa Blackall spent two years engaged in national service with the traveling AmeriCorps NCCC program.  Infected with wanderlust, she then moved to Alaska where she  continued to develop her photography skills.

She started Melissa Blackall Photography (MBP) in 2007 while living in Washington, DC. As her business grew, she moved back to her home state of Massachusetts.  Melissa is currently based in Somerville, MA and continues to shoot for clients all over the country and beyond. 

She applies her diverse artistic background (writing, directing, and filmmaking) during every shoot. Whether she's photographing a lecture, performance, corporate executive or family, she's always  looking for authentic moments. She finds  beauty in capturing what connects people to what they do and  love. 

She's also dedicated to exploring relationships within and to nature.  You can see her conservation photography and filmmaking here:  WildLinks.Org
