Melissa Z Worthington (aka Mel)

photographer, storyteller, people -loving introvert

I’m a freelance photog in the DMV and I take environmental portraits with an authentic feel. Here’s the CV: MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, BA from Georgetown University, nationally exhibited artist, Virginia Museum Fellow and have been in biz for myself since 2002. But here’s the real: I’m both silly and serious, a little outdoorsy and a little indoorsy, I’m crafty but have expensive taste and I’m a little bit of glam mixed in with a lot of tomboy. I love complexity in my world and in others, I could never fit all that you into one frame. But that won’t stop me from trying.
