Mel Englander grew up with photography. Born to Sidney Englander, a successful New York photographer, Mel started at a very early age assisting his Father in the studio, on shoots and in the photo lab learning retouching and printing techniques. At 16, Mel went on to win his first print competition.
Recognizing this was his passion, Mel studied photography and video production at Brooklyn College. During his college days, he studied with, and assisted, Philippe Halsman a renowned photojournalist and top Life Magazine photographer. Working with Halsman, Mel learned the art of capturing peoples personalities on film. Through the Professional Photographers of America, Mel took many additional courses attending workshops with such notable photographers as Monte Zucker.
Mel is an experienced photojournalist with a trained artist's eye and a natural ability to capture those special and rare moments in a most distinctive way. This talent becomes evident in every photo he takes. After opening his first studio in North Miami Beach, Mel built a video production facility and in a short time began receiving accolades for his videography. Intent on improving the public's view of event videography, Mel helped form and was elected founding President of The Event Videographers Association of South Florida. He won the prestigious Telly Award for his editing; Steven Spielberg wrote a congratulatory letter for his work done for the Shoa Foundation.
His passion for photographic and videographic excellence endures and, in 1995, he was one of the first event photographers to embrace digital photography in South Florida. Mel regularly attends workshops and continues to further explore and develop his highly trained artistic craft and skills in digital photography.
