A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
Hi! My name is Melissa Joiner and my passion is photography. I have been clicking pictures since I was little and think I have an eye for the perfect picture. Close to ten years the camera has been my friend including five years in a professional studio. My expertise is portrait and lifestyle photography not to mention experience in wedding, landscape and commercial photography. My hope is that I can make a lasting memory out of my love for capturing your special moments...

I am In Sarasota now. You have an Open invitation to photo this real clown professional, magician and scientist. Odd career choice, maybe lends to good photos. Moving in to new studio.There is also some opportunity to photograph lightning bolts. They are endlessly odd looking. I am speaking of controlled lightning, not outdoor weather. The electric frequencys can be studied very closely with a I mentioned before, polarization of light can be related to electric frequencys in lots of ways.

Thanks for your kind note. The photos are good. Polarized and Solarized, I m building new machines now. Always happy to do photos, artist, clown, magician, or scientist. They might all be present at once. One does not know.

Hi, Melissa,

Thanks you for your comment. I wasn't able to access your entire message, so I'm not sure what you are looking for. My prices range from $300 to $1,200 for a large canvas.
