It all started when...
Melissa Rodwell embarked on a globe-spanning career as a fashion photographer in 1987. She has lived and worked all over the world, photographing for Ralph Lauren, Nike, Coca Cola, Honda, NBC Television, and Dell Computers. Her editorial assignments have lead to her being published in Harpers Bazaar, L’Officiel, Glassbook, Spirit and Flesh, Kurv, Jimon, Flaunt, And Men, Genlux, and Playboy. Simultaneously, Melissa Rodwell has had numerous solo exhibitions in Amsterdam, Sydney, Los Angeles, and Miami.
In 2008 Rodwell started giving back to the Fashion Photography community by mentoring up & coming Fashion Photographers, teaching workshops and pioneering online Fashion Photography tutorials including the most comprehensive educational tutorial on Fashion Photography released to date, Fashion Photography Exposed. In 2013, Melissa founded Breed with the dream of sharing a wealth of information and creating a creative Breeding ground for aspiring Fashion Photographers, Stylists, Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists, Models and Creatives in the Fashion industry.
