Stories, Adventures, and Learning

Melinda Conway

Photographer/Artist, Mother and Teacher: Portland, Oregon.

I created this blog in 2015 when I started seriously pursuing photography in learning manual control; and then so much more. I have had a camera in my hand since I was 11 and remember the days of sending in my rolls of film to Clark Color Labs; excitedly waited to find out what materialized from the film. I think my roots really began from enjoying my father’s slide shows from our family camping trips. Each Christmas he would share our stories for our extended family. I would sit with my cousins attempting to make it as silly as possible.

This blog documents my own photographic journey of outdoor adventures with my camera, my family, creative experimentation, and client galleries.
