At an early age, Melissa Rodwell found herself flipping through the pages of her Mom's copies of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue Magazine. She quickly became fascinated by fashion and inspired with the culture that surrounded it. After having the opportunity to see a Helmut Newton exhibition in Paris at the age of 17, she saw the possibility of combining a love of fashion with her new love of photography. Melissa studied at the prestigious Art Center in California and started learning the craft that would soon take her all over the world. During that time she found a lot of inspiration from her true love of Rock 'n' Roll Music and the burgeoning punk scene happening in LA during the 80s. She would go on to take that aesthetic and create a look that would put her into the very pages of the magazines she loved as a child. After years of shooting, she decided to take a hiatus and ended up stumbling into the world of blogging. This would eventually lead her to create her company Breed, that provides online education and insider information to people in the world of Fashion Photography. Melissa continues to create beautiful fashion work and has returned to her original love of rock music to create her newest project Alice Magazine, which combines fashion, music, and the rock aesthetic. Join us as we hear an in-depth version of this story and some inspiring advice from Melissa Rodwell.
