    This past weekend I captured the 2020 Portland Golf Show. It was slightly different from years past as I had a digital media #student from #ClevelandHighSchool “Shadowing” me. How cool was that!? 😎📸
    Here’s a #selfie with me and Jaxon at the event.

    As a New Yorker, my first real connection with urban nature came in the form of #pigeons . I actually enjoy them. So yesterday, after I wrapped up an event shoot with Cascade Sotheby’s Realty, I walked over to a plant nursery I’d never been in. As I was browsing, I spied this cast iron pigeon! There was just enough room next to my #gear for it to ride in the seat next to me on the way home 😎📸🦅
    He’s now settled on my back porch teasing the cats 😼

    Getting the studio ready for our next product photography set. Tiny product = tiny set. And check out how a random old box is getting new life as it’s the perfect height to hold our product :) 😎😎📸📸 /p>

    Here’s my camera combo from yesterday’s #photoshoot with @switch_shoes . #NikonD810 w 35mm lens and #NikonZ7 with 24-70mm #Tamron lens. I also had a speed light and reflector in my road kit.

    #PORTLAND CREATIVES TAKE NOTE : If you’re a creative company and are interested in investing in Portland’s own homegrown creatives, look no further than the creative students and faculty at PPS’s Cleveland High School. The creativity that’s coming out of that school is OFF THE CHARTS!!!

    Recently, myself and other select professional creatives, were invited by the #DigitalMediaProgram instructor, Vanessa Hughes, to come in and critique the students final presentations. Students presented photographic slide shows, edited videos, and pro-level illustrations.

    In addition to being an #IB (International Baccalaureate) school, Cleveland High School offers a career path for creative with courses in #graphicdesign, #illustration #photography, #video, #audio production, #socialmedia, #websitemanagement, #ceramics, and more… (whew)

    Go Warriors!

    Have an upcoming party or event with a logo wall? STEP AND REPEAT PHOTOGRAPHY is actually like quick fun mini sessions with a professional photographer for your guests. For these sessions I set up my lights in front of your logo wall. I interact with guests that want their fun/wacky photos taken by me and review every photo I take prior to release. This #FlashbackFriday image is one of the many fun images I captured for the Portland Creative Conference Step and Repeat. To view more of my work, visit me at: www.melissatoledo.com , or Message me to start our own conversation about your upcoming event/party. Thank you.

    As the Lead Photographer for the “RAW natural born artists” Portland showcases, I am always go grateful when I get to hang out with an old friend because they’re showcasing as an artist! Meet LaRonn Katchia. An incredible local film maker with a passion to bring the Native American perspective to Hollywood. LaRonn also documented both of my Latin Fashion PDX events. And even more amazing was when he showed me one of my Latin Fashion PDX models in one of his videos!! (Insert huge proud grin here) Solid work!! 💃🏽👏🏼 📸 // (at Roseland Theater)

    Today I spoke to #students about being a #freelance photographer at #Cleveland High School’s #CareerDay. It was an awesome opportunity to talk to the students about me and my company and the journey to getting paid for what you love to do. 📸👩🏽‍💻

    This goofy grin moment is courtesy of yesterday’s event photography gig with the Oregon Tradeswoman. They raised thousands of dollars to help in their mission for women empowerment and I’m proud I was there to document it. Way to go Sisters!! 📸🙏🏼

    I am an Event Photographer and last week I documented #Hyundai’s Hope On Wheels ceremony at OHSU. Their mission raises funds through car sales and brings hope to those fighting childhood cancer.

    Feel free to contact me if you have an important event coming up and are in need of a pro photographer to help document it.

    I’m back at the Oregon Convention Center capturing event photography for the AACVPR and I’m using my new #Nikon #Z7. How cool is it that I can now geek out about my BIG pop-out screen. It’s so big I can review images during breaks! 😁📸
