Photo Assistant

Melissa Zink

People, Portrait, Stillife, Food

Know How:

I've worked with Capture One tethered shooting, Profoto lighting, Dinolites (in college), and natural light. I've worked on location at restaurants, commercial prep kitchens, and in studio. .
I was in charge of digital file naming, props, set up and breakdown, equipment hauls. I'm in

food, travel, and lifestyle photography, and extremely interested in interior architecture photography as well.
I have transitioned from restaurants, so I'm extremely well versed in communication and handling people in a pleasant, professional manner. Additionally, I have decades of experience with food and chefs.
