HEY there, i'm MEL.

PHOTOGRAPHER / MULTIMEDIA STORYTELLER / CREATIVE

Since graduating in 2014, I've discovered that I don't fit into one box when it comes to my profession. Nailing that perfect LinkedIn headline has always been a challenge for me. Over the past decade, I've worn many hats: photographer, writer, videographer, editor, assistant in audiovisual productions, social media manager, content creator, actress.

In an online world filled with specialized professionals and industry experts, I began to feel the pressure to niche down, but, at the same time, it's always felt counterintuitive. After all, what I'm truly passionate about is telling stories -in all their diverse forms. And I believe my multifaceted profile to be my biggest strength.

I'm interested in working with artists, small businesses, entrepreneurs, media outlets, agencies, production companies, and brands with soul (bonus points if they're

planet-friendly). My areas of expertise and interest include the arts, fashion & lifestyle,

and sustainability.

We all have a story worth sharing, and I want to help you bring yours to life. I'm always looking for exciting new projects, so if this resonates with you and you want to collaborate, please get in touch!

MADRID NO FRILLS

Right at the intersection of Divino Pastor and Monteleón, in the heart of lively Malasaña, there is a sign that reads ‘Guitarra Ángel Benito Aguado’. If we are lucky enough to find the blinds up, we can see luthier Yunah Park inside, working with silent dedication.

MADRID NO FRILLS

"A mi madre, que siempre me ayudó para ser pintor".

Es un soleado domingo de invierno y, como todos los fines de semana, la gente aprovecha para caminar tranquilamente por el Paseo del Prado. Justo frente al museo, varios artistas locales instalan sus puestos para exhibir y vender sus obras. Entre ellos se encuentra Antonio Castor, ya preparado para otra jornada de trabajo. Vistiendo un saco bordó y acompañado de decenas de sus pinturas, observa expectante el pasar de los transeúntes.

MADRID NO FRILLS

It’s a cloudy and chilly March Saturday in the Valley of Fornela. There are no customers in the bar of the local albergue, only a man called León sitting quietly by the fireplace. “In winter, there are only four of us”, he says while he waits for his café con leche to cool down. He is one of the few remaining residents of Peranzanes, the capital of the valley. All four of his daughters, as most of the youth and adult population, have migrated to urban hubs in search for better opportunities.
