Punk a Photographic Journey: 2004-2007
Punk a Photogr...
By Melynda von Wayward
Photo book
In 2004 Melynda von Wayward picked up a camera for the first time and decided to reinvent herself as a photographer in order to capture and document the contemporary Melbourne punk scene.  

She soon realised that she not only loved taking photos of this colourful and vibrant subculture, but that she also enjoyed taking photos of other interesting people as well, culminating in the creation of a photographic business called 'Melynda Photographer  ‘Capturing the Essence of You’. 

Melynda's specialty is creative portrait shots for individuals, couples and families, headshots and folio shots for actors and models, promotional shots for bands, performance groups, and businesses, and a niche market in alternative people (punks, people with tattoos and piercings).

Melynda's motto, ‘Capturing the Essence of You’, means to capture the essence of who each subject is - their inner soul shall we say. To  achieve this, Melynda has photographed each subject in their home or location of their choice.  By doing so, the subjects are able to feel comfortable in their own surroundings, therefore allowing the essence of who they are to truly shine through. 

Prints are for sale upon inquiry...
