Melissa is the first port of call for our clients, coordinating photo shoots in the studio and on location and managing the workflow through the business to ensure our work is always exceeding expectations.
Having worked in film and television for many years on programmes for the BBC, Channel Four, Discovery Channel, Sky One and independent film companies, she has years of experience in production. One of her greatest moments was working with Dame Joan Plowright on Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont which was directed by the late great Dan Ireland, another was working with Rutger Hauer on an obscure reality show that he was presenting, filmed in a disused and dilapidated Victorian psychiatric institution in Essex.
Melissa is excited to get to grips with the photographic world and work with the friendly team at Fisher Studios. In her spare time, she tries to see as much contemporary dance and ballet as possible at Sadler’s Wells – her favourite theatre in London.
