Through The Lens
My name is Melissa Wax, I am a fine art photographer based in Seattle, WA. I started out as an oil painter in college and transitioned to photography. I quickly found my passion through the lens and aspire to make images that speak to the viewer.
My current passion is fine art photography, creating collections of imagery that tell a story and capture a moment that portray motion, movement, and emotion. All my images start out as a drawing and from there I start the process of bringing it to life with the help of some great people and models.
I founded and run Ballard VOX in Seattle, WA. Ballard VOX is an online music photography publication connecting musicians to the community through photography. We are a group of passionate volunteer photographers covering the local music scene.
I also work with KEXP as a photographer for their in-studio sessions as well as live shows around Seattle. You can find my work under the Music section on my website as well as at KEXP's Flickr page:
I am regularly commissioned to do portraiture as well. I range from corporate headshots to newborn photography. Please contact me if you would like more information about scheduling a consultation and photoshoot.
