About

Melissa Z Worthington

photographer, storyteller, people -loving introvert

Call me Mel. I’m a freelance photog in the DMV (that’s the Washington, DC area) and I take environmental portraits with an authentic feel. Here are the CV creds: 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 silly and serious, outdoorsy and love my couch, crafty with expensive taste, a little glam mixed with a little tomboy. I love the complexity in myself, in my world and in others: we are not meant to be boxed.
