Today we’d like to introduce you to Melisande Martin.
Melisande, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I wanted to find a creative outlook within the music industry. Sadly I am not musically talented at all, so I looked into doing something else. Low and behold I found photography. It has been my life ever since I turned 16. Slowly but surely, I met some amazing people and grew my work.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I am a female music photographer based in the San Diego and LA area! I got to a point in my life where I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I grew up going to shows and boom it hit me. Let’s capture these moments that people hold closest to their hearts. Something I tell everyone is to never give up, no matter how cliché it sounds. Photography is hard, no doubt. You will learn something every day if you keep pushing at it. I want people to look at my art and feel like they were there for that exact moment. Maybe there were there.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
I define success by how far you’ve come, not necessarily how good you are. If you want to be successful in this industry, you have to be a hard worker, not much of a complainer, and most importantly, be don’t be a dick. Can I swear in this?
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
People can see my work on Instagram, Twitter, and my website! You can support me by being a kind soul and supporting the artists I work with!
