Mel Schockner
Photographer of 3-D Fine Art & Craft


Before I was a professional photographer of art, I was a sculptor of architectural elements such as entry doors, fireplace mantles and decor as well as wood signs for businesses and corporate logos designed by my wife, Rosetta. We worked as a team for the concepts and execution of these projects. While executing my craft, I used lighting to bring out the dimensionality and textures of the forms I was carving. This experience helped tremendously when I started lighting for photography. Since it was my first medium, I have a deep appreciation for the beauty of wood.
