Is it ok if I share one of your images on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. or use it as my profile pic?

Can I hire Melodie to shoot my wedding?

I’m sorry, probably not. I rarely do weddings because it takes a special set of skills. I specialize in music/concert and art photography. I occasionally do other events and plays, but I’m not the best at weddings and I’d hate to ruin your special day! It’d be like hiring a fry cook to bake your wedding cake. Sure, it’s kinda the same professions, but you can imagine the different results. They can both fix wonderful food, but it’s just different types of food that require a different skill set.

I went to a show or party, and Melodie took a photo of me at the event I attended. Where can I find that photo?

First, try searching for the event that you attended in the search bar under the menu, or visit the Concert & Events gallery, and choose the year of the event you attended. Your photo should be in its event photo gallery. Simply select info & view the photo at FULL SIZE. Then right click & save image. If you don’t see your photo in the gallery of its events photo gallery then, unfortunately, it probably did not come out due to poor lighting or poor focusing on my part. Please forgive me, and come join me at another event, so I can have another shot!

Can I crop/change your image so it fits my profile pic/cover photo needs?

Well… I’d prefer you didn’t.

A photograph is to me what a painting is to a painter. Would you buy a painting from a beloved artist to display in your house, and then cut an inch off the side so it will fit better on a wall, or would you just hang it on a different wall? My work is kinda the same principle.

However, I totally get that nowadays social media makes you crop the image sometimes, so may the force be with you.

Can I buy a print/high res image of a photo from Melodie’s galleries?

Maybe… Many art prints from the artistic photo galleries are definitely available and for sale in the Photographic Melodie Online Shop as well as many others pieces in my gallery. Just contact me at melodie@photographicmelodie.com for any specific inquiries or to schedule a visit to the gallery in person.

Most concert prints are not for sale, however. I’m very sorry. It is illegal to sell photos of artists without their written permission.

Can I buy a print/hi res image Melodie shot of an artist that I love?

No, I’m very sorry. It is illegal to sell photos of artists without their written permission.

What type of camera, lens, and settings do you use to capture your images?

I’m sorry, I switch around so much that I just can’t remember what I did with a particular photo sometimes. I do leave the metadata attached to my images, however, so if you are wondering about a certain image just go to the gallery, open the image, scroll down just a nudge, and the info you seek should be there.

I don’t see my question in the FAQs. What do I do?

Please feel free to contact Melodie at melodie@photographicmelodie.com with your question, and she will get back to you as soon as possible.

And PRETTY PLEASE above all else remember…
