Photographers and Models – The majority of people can apply make up for everyday use but there are a few differences in applying make up for photos; especially for glamour or high fashion. With Melissa's knowledge of working in live television to working side by side with various photographer's such as celebrity photographer Steve Azzara she knows exactly how the camera and lighting will interact.
