“The camera is the least important element in photography.” – Julius Shulman

Award winning photographer Melissa Gowen resides in Crestwood, KY along with her husband and two teenage children.  Her journey into photography started very young and has been a passion for her ever since.  She ventured into photography professionally and eventually started her company MJ Gowen Photography in 2013.  Melissa’s philosophy is that photography is not just about taking pictures, its about capturing the important stuff in a meaningful way.  A way that represents you or your product in a way others can relate to . . . a way that captures their attention and draws them in.

Melissa is dedicated to further learning and education in photography.  She is currently earning her Certified Professional Photographer Certification and then will continue to earn her Master’s of Photography Degree.  She has already won 5 Image Awards in the Shutterfest image competition and has had images published in several magazine publications.

In April of 2018 Melissa will be teaching real estate photography to hundreds of other photographers at the Shutterfest photography convention.  She enjoys teaching and sharing her love for photography and art with others.
