More About Melissa - Melissablackallphotography
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>

Melissa is a storyteller at heart. She uses her diverse artistic background (playwriting, directing, and filmmaking) during every shoot. After graduating film school at NYU, she  spent two years in AmeriCorps NCCC. She wrote a play for the organization and performed it while serving at various non-profits in the US. Infected with wanderlust, she then moved to Alaska where she  continued to write and develop her photography skills. She started Melissa Blackall Photography in 2007.  Whether she's photographing a family, artist, corporate executive or professor, she's always  looking for authentic moments and connections. 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 environmental photography and filmmaking here:
