Melissa Tilley

Where are you from, and where do you live now?
I was raised in a small town in central Pennsylvania, but now reside in the city of Philadelphia.

How did you first get into photography?
Growing up, I used to spend a lot of time messing around with my mom's cameras on family vacations and around the house. I found myself spending more and more time doing the same as I got older, and decided to try my hand at photography in a more serious way after graduating from college. 

What's your favorite part about working for Shutterstock Custom?
My favorite part of contributing to Shutterstock Custom is the amount of imagery that I have the potential to add to my portfolio. Shutterstock Custom works with a lot of amazing clients, and the briefs allow me to be creative while shooting and add diversity to my collection.
