Mel Lindstrom is an award-winning commercial advertising photographer with more than 20 years experience creating images for advertising agencies and large corporate clients.
Involved in all aspects of art from painting to poetry at an early age, Mel developed the eye for composition and form that soon lead to the skillful lighting directing techniques used in his photography and video work. Having attended the prestigious The Art Center College Of Design in Pasadena CA on an advanced standing, Mel proved proficiency in other courses, allowing him to graduate the 4 year college with a BFA in photography in only 2.5 years.
After an extraordinary life journey over the last few years, (My Story), Mel’s passions are divided between beautiful dance images and shooting intense, artistic personality portraits of people that inspire him. That inspiration can be found in politicians, entrepreneurs, artists, or even construction workers or prison inmates. “I love looking into the essence of the human spirit and making that unique quality appear in an image”.
Mel maintains a strong focus in old school mastery with lighting, composition and technique. Staying in touch with both the artistic and technical details. While making certain the entire set, crew and clients, have a fun and professional experience.
The list of accolades number over 300, but include best of shows, National ADDY’s, SONY World Photography Awards, C.A. Magazine, and many more.
When he is not in one of his two studios, creating work for clients, Mel can be found either at home taking care of his sons, or working on his writing (Poems and Stories), including the development of a new TV series his team is bringing to life.
