Who is Melody?

I'm a freelance photographer, filmmaker and media designer based in Aachen, Germany. 

I started Photography when I was 13. Many photoshootings with my friends later I found myself studing Media and Communications for Digital Business in Aachen, Germany. In that time I met so many wonderful souls that inspired me to create short films as well. Since 2016 I've been producing and shooting short videos - mainly drama, travel and sports. My Photography is focused on portraits and outdoor sports.

If you can't find me taking photos or videos you can probably find me somewhere in the woods or mountains :-)

Fun facts about me

- I bought my first camera at the age of 13 when I had an ACL and couldn't do any activities. I just ordered it without asking my parents. My father just said it was probably "a good investion".

- I was born in south Germany close to the mountains. I got into hiking in New Zealand.

- I have a convincing "Gollum" voice.
