I have been an avid photographer since the age of 12 when I found a love of photography on a family trip to Bar Harbor, ME. My love for science and nature grew together over the years as I learned more about the art of photography and the natural world around me. I have a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology and work in the pharmaceutical industry, bringing novel medicines to patients with rare diseases. In my spare time, I love to speak with camera clubs, present at photography conferences and help my husband, Charles, with his workshops. I enjoy creating images with both my Canon camera and my smartphone. In recent years, I have found a passion for smartphone creative photography. It is so much fun to learn a new app and transform a decent image into a work of art. I also want to create a space where I can share my journey with meditation and the heart art that it has unlocked. You can see "The Art of Hearts" section of my website to learn more about that!
My name is Melissa Needle. I am a scientist, passionate photographic artist, and student of meditation. I am located in Longmont, Colorado.
